NJCAA Names Barnes First Team All American

KSCB News - April 1, 2010 12:00 am

Rachel Barnes might just have gotten the icing on top of

her cake for her Seward County career this morning as the sophomore

forward was named a 1st Team NJCAA All-American for her effort on the

hardwood this season for the Lady Saints. This season, the Lady Saint

sophomore was 3rd in the country in scoring at 21.3 points per game and

was less than .8 of a point per game from leading the entire country in

scoring for the season. As well as leading the conference in scoring by

over 4 points per game, Barnes also finished in the top 4 in the Jayhawk

Conference in field goal percentage, free throw percentage and rebounds.

She became only the 7th player in school history to top the 1,000 career

point mark as she finished with 1,169 career points which ranks her

between Kim Ortega and Tracy Wynn in 4th place on the Seward County

All-Time scoring list. She also found her way into the record books

this season by scoring 41 points in a postseason win over Cowley giving

her the single game scoring record. The sophomore is in the process of

making her Division 1 visits and hopes to be making her college choice

once those visits are complete.
