The Lady Saints rewrote the record books Wednesday, and not just the one kept on Seward County. A record 25 three pointers also set the record for the NJCAA and would have tied the NCAA Div. 1 record as well as the NBA record.

The Lady Saints also set a record for the most points  and the largest margin of victory in a 130-48 win over Colby.

Seward only scored two points in the first two minutes, but after a time out by Seward coach Toby Wynn, the Lady Saints scored 10 points in a minute, and by the time the Lady Trojans made a basket, Seward had made three three pointers and had a 19-2 lead.

The Lady Saints made five threes in the period and nine more in the second to take a 66-13 halftime lead.

The Lady Saints continued to crank up threes, hitting six more in the third and five more in the fourth.

By the time the onslaught was over, nine Lady Saints had made threes, seven scored in double digits, and the Lady Saints set school records for number of assists (40), most points scored in a Jayhawk Conference game (130), and largest margin of victory (82) to go along with the NJCAA record 25 three pointers.

Mollie Mounsey led the Lady Saints with 23 points, Amy Scott, Vanessa Caro and Brennyn Seagler each had 12, Lexi Hernandez and Sidney Tinner each had 11, and Vilma Covane had 10.

“After the Independence game, we wanted to collect ourselves at a different level,” Wynn said. “We played with the intensity level we know we are capable of doing. That is holding everyone on our bench to that. We are trying to win a championship. We know what is at stake. We have the capability to shoot the ball. Whenever they have the ball, are open and in balance, we expect them to shoot it. I didn’t recruit them here to hold the ball.”

Seward still has a game lead in the conference chase, and Wynn wants his team to finish at the top.

“We expect to fly around, create havoc, and to push the pace,” he said. “It is all relative to what we do. The stat that sticks out to me is 40 assists. I’ve never seen that.”

Wynn also expected to see a complete game.

“In games we’ve lost, there has been a point of a lull, not playing at our pace to be effective,” he said. “Our players played at our level tonight.”
