It was yet another 20 win campaign for the Lady Saints under Wynn's direction in 2012-2013. Seward finished 20-11 overall and 10-6 in Jayhawk West action to notch their 21st straight 20 win season. The Lady Saints battled through a rash of injuries last season including the loss of a pair of projected sophomore starters in Anete Kirsteine and Payton Fleming, a blow of 17 points and 8 rebounds per game that the two put up as freshman. Despite the losses, Wynn guided Seward to a 4th place finish in the Jayhawk West and a run to the Region VI Tournament Quarterfinals before their season was cut short by eventual Region Champs Hutchinson in the Sports Arena. Wynn coached another pair of All-Americans in 2012-2013 as Ricquia Jones and Madison McLain both collected WBCA Honorable Mention All-American accolades.
Under Wynn's guidance the Lady Saints reached the 20 win mark in 2011-2012, marking the 20th straight season that Seward County has reached the plateau. The Lady Saints went 23-8 and 11-5 in Jayhawk West play, good for 2nd place and had two players named WBCA All-Americans (Ashlynn Knoll & Anete Kirsteine).

The Lady Saints finished 4th in conference play with a 10-6 record but found their way to the Region VI Tournament quarterfinals where they lost a close game to Cowley to end their year. Wynn coached a pair of WBCA All-American's in 2010-2011 as Mariah Lee and Ashlynn Knoll were both given the honor.
Wynn has emerged as one of the top young coaches in junior college women’s basketball. In the summer of 2011 the Lady Saints head man was asked to participate with Team USA Women's Basketball during their 18-U National Team tryout camp. During the camp he worked with such players as Brittney Boyd, Chiney Ogwuimike, and Meighan Simmons who ended up going on to play at California, Stanford, and Tennessee respectively.
In 2009-2010, Wynn pushed the Lady Saints to the Jayhawk West Championship with a 15-1 record and finished the season 31-3, losing in the Region VI Championship Game for the second straight season. In 2008-09, Wynn's Lady Saints fell just 2 points short of going to the NJCAA National Tournament and in 2007-08, Wynn’s Lady Saints were the #1 ranked team in the country to open the year and finished 13-3 in conference play, good for 2nd place in the always tough Jayhawk Conference. In 2006-07, the Lady Saints went to the NJCAA National Tournament and finished in 3rd Place with a 36-2 overall record. Wynn captured his first Head Coaching conference championship (15-1 Jayhawk West Conference record) and his first Region VI Tournament Championship.
Wynn's Seward County club posted wins over 5 NJCAA Top 20 teams in 09-10 including wins over 3 teams ranked inside the nations top 11. He watched as Rachel Barnes wrapped up one of the best careers in school history after clipping the 1,000 point marker in a game late in the season before putting on a dominating show in the Region VI Tournament semifinals where she would score a school record 41 points and grab 16 rebounds to push Seward to the championship game. Barnes was later named the Jayhawk West Conference MVP, the Region VI MVP, as well as a WBCA All-American and a 1st Team NJCAA All-American before signing with the Big East's Providence College.
With a relatively young team in 2008-09, Wynn led the Lady Saints to a 3rd place finish in the Jayhawk West Conference with a 13-3 mark. However, his gals in green would win their final seven regular season conference games and their first three egion VI Tournament games to reach the tournament championship game against rival Hutchinson in Koch Arena in Wichita. After a dreadful 1st half, Wynn would guide his Lady Saints back into the game with a fury of defensive stops and hard earned buckets on the other end to have them in the game late. Unfortunatly the Lady Saints would fall on the last posession of the game to cut their season short at 28-6, one game short of the National Tournament.
In 2007-08, Wynn had three sophomores and one freshman who signed with NCAA Division I or Division II programs.
