LIBERAL, Kan.- Seward County Community College Women’s Basketball program is recognized by the World Exposure Report’s Way-too-Early JUCO D1 Rankings No. 20th in the Nation. Todd Ciochetto entering his first season at the helm and has already spent a very productive semester with the Lady Saints. The team is made up of a core of Sophomores that transferred to Seward with Coach Ciochetto from last year’s 32-1 team at Northern Iowa Area Community College. The Trojans entered the 2020 D2 National Tournament as the number one team overall before the tournament was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With a very talented and fast team, the Lady Saints will look to be the aggressors on the court and favor a fast pace full-court game. Sierra Morrow is a transfer sophomore forward from NIACC that was named D2 World Exposure freshman of the year for the 2019-20 season. Last season Morrow averaged 15.6 points, 8 rebounds, 4.8 blocks per game, and shot a staggering 49% from the field. This fall Morrow was ranked 21st in the World Exposure’s top 2021 JUCO Players nationwide.

The Lady Saints added depth to their line-up with a very fast guard-heavy freshman class that can balance the floor. A couple of notable names from the Lady Saints 2020-21 freshman class to watch will be Miyah Dubose, Kabrea Jamerson, and Delma Zita.

The Lady Saints last season had a 25-7 overall record and it ended with a loss to Butler Community College 70-65 in the Region VI semifinals. Seward was given an automatic bid in the National Tournament and was ranked No. 17th before it was canceled.

With a new chapter, the Lady Saints will look to continue the program’s success and will start the 2021 season on January 27th on the road at Allen Community College.
