On the heels of their third straight Jayhawk West Conference Championship, four Seward County Saints were honored by the league  with the release of their All-Conference teams.

Head Coach Bryan Zollinger won the league’s Coach of the Year award this season, the fourth time in his six years at the helm for the Saints that he has done so.

Kaheem Ransom was named First Team All-Conference while fellow sophomores Edson Avila and Jabari Peters were named Second Team All-Jayhawk West.

Zollinger led the Saints to a 25-8 overall record and a 14-2 record in the Jayhawk West. The 14 wins were the most by any team in the Jayhawk West since the 2002 season. Ransom finished second in the league in scoring in 2012-2013, putting up 16.5 points per game overall and 17.6 per game during conference games this season.

Avila, the Saints emotional leader, finished third on the team by scoring 11.4 points per game and was Seward’s second leading rebounder at 5.8 boards per game.

Peters was second on the team in scoring at 12.8 per game, led the Saints in steals at 2.2 per game, and was third on the team in rebounding at 4.1 per game.

Hutchinson freshman Kadeem Allen swept the Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year awards and was one of two Blue Dragons on the First Team. Barton also put two players on First Team to go along with Ransom.
