Seward defeated Neosho County 124-50 in the first round of the Region VI tournament. The Lady Saints will head to Independence for the second round.

The second quarter had more balanced scoring from the two teams but the Lady Saints still held their lead. Seward went into halftime with a 53-31 lead and outscored Neosho in the second quarter 19-17. The Lady Saints shot 42 percent from the field in the first half and connected on eight threes in the half.

In the third quarter, Seward County took control of the game and outscored Neosho 41-11 to take a 93-42 advantage after a Wiktoria Kazimierowicz three. The Lady Saints connected on 16 threes through three quarters.
