Wynn All Smiles After Conference Opening Win

KSCB News - January 5, 2012 6:50 am

He couldn’t hide the smile. The always intense coach of the Lady Saints is 176-40. He has won big games to clinch conference and region championships. But he says Wednesday night’s 75-57 win at Barton was one of his more satisfying wins.

Playing without Ashlynn Knoll and Kayla Thomas who were injured in a car crash Saturday. Then losing Payton Fleming to a knee injury in the first half, Seward buckled down for an impressive road win to start the conference season.

The Lady Saints led 30-21 at halftime. The game see-sawed back and forth early in the second half. Seward surged ahead 56-47 with 3:16 to play and continued to extend their lead.

Seward’s freshman were fabulous. Charmaine Burns scored a career high 21. Anete Kirsteine scored 17 including 5-9 shooting from three point range. Classmates Ricquia Jones and Kelsey Blair scored nine a piece. Sophomore Mariah Lee chipped in 13.

The #10 Lady Saints win for the second time in three years in Great Bend and for the fourth time in five decisions against the Lady Cougars. Barton is 10-5 while Seward is 12-2.

The Lady Saints host 5-10 Colby Saturday night at 6 p.m. on B107.5 and Billy’s is the buyout sponsor.
