(17-5) WHS LADY CRUSADERS are STATE 4A TOURNEY BOUND!
The WHS Lady Crusaders' desires to return to the STATE 4A TOURNAMENT in Salina for the 2nd consecutive year was tooooo much for the Lady Rockets of Rose Hill to overcome, even on their home court Saturday evening in the 38-35 WHS, 4A Sub-State Championship Final Game. A close game throughout, fraught with foul problems at times, the never say die Lady Crusaders held on for a close 3 pt win to advance (again, for the 2nd consecutive time) to STATE 4A TOURNAMENT action in Salina commencing on Thursday of this coming week. #6 seed Wellington vs #3 seed Shawnee Mission Miege @ 8:15PM / Tony's Pizza Event Center. Scoring honors go to both Avery Rusk and Lauryn Snipes, both with 13. Clutch free-throw shooting by RUSK down the stretch sealed the deal for Wellington's trip north next week. Shayland French had 7 pts., followed by Jacelyn Buck with 3 and Tayland French with 2. A large contingent of Crusader Fans were on hand for this game (and the boys game) - the crowd erupted at the buzzer - we're going back to SALINA!!
MULVANE pulls away in the 4th for the win
The WHS Crusader Boys were coming on strong at just the right time of the season, easily downing host Rose Hill on Thursday in opening day 4A Sub-State action 59-44. In the Championship Final Saturday vs Mulvane, the Wildcats jumped out early on the Crusaders but the RED TEAM battled back. At halftime, it was knotted at 28! Hot outside shooting though by Mulvane would prove the difference in the end. Numerous "3's" throughout the game stretched the Wildcat lead, and eventually a 2nd trip in 3 years to the State 4A Tournament for the Crusaders was in jeopardy. At the final buzzer, the Wildcats were on top 65-57 and the season would end for Wellington @ 8-14. Mulvane advances on to Salina for State Tournament action commencing on Wednesday. Their record now stands at 9-13 and they won't be the only sub .500 team at Tony's Pizza Event Center when the whistle blows on Wednesday. Congratulations to Wellington for an "almost" season of greater success - many close battles, overtime games and more. Most if not all of the regular starters will return next year which bodes well for the 2017-2018 season. Congrats on a rugged and hard fought season Crusaders! SCORING: A.J. Snipes 28, Ian King 7, Silas Popplewell 7, Cade Phelps 6, Grey Hatfield 3, Will Long 2, Jack Walton 2, Therin Frame 2.

LADY CRUSADERS WIN BIG - A TOUGH ONE AWAITS!
It was semi-final action in Rose Hill Friday evening for the Lady Crusaders, Lady Vikings, Lady Rockets and Lady Wildcats. In the opener, our very own WHS Lady Crusaders pulled away in the 2nd half vs Winfield, much like the Crusaders on Thursday did vs Rose Hill. Up only 4 at half, the Wellington girls Friday doubled their score by 3rd quarters' end and added another 15 down the stretch to defeat the Lady Vikings and send them packing for another year, final score Wellington 57 Winfield 38.
In the nightcap Friday, host Rose Hill downed Mulvane 48-24 to advance and meet up for the 4th time this season with the Lady Crusaders on Saturday in the SUB-STATE 4A CHAMPIONSHIP GAME beginning at 6:00PM at Rose Hill HS. Following that game, it will be Wellington's Crusaders vs Mulvane's Wildcats! (also for the 4th time this season) The winners of these two games Saturday advance to the STATE 4A BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT next week in Salina. Wellington could have two teams at the State Tournament, which would be the 2nd year in a row for the Lady Crusaders and the 2nd time in 3 years for the Crusaders to make State appearances.
In the Wellington vs Winfield contest, the Lady Crusaders jumped out to an early lead but the Lady Vikings battled back and were within 4 pts. when the 1st half buzzer sounded. After the break though, Wellington exploded offensively, outscoring Winfield 22-10 in the 3rd and 15 -10 in the final qtr. The Lady Crusaders had "3" in double figures: Avery Rusk 18, Shayland French 12, Lauryn Snipes 12, Tayland French 8, Mekenna Adams 3, Jacelyn Buck 3, Chloe Wilson 1. The win advances the Lady Crusaders to 16-5 and sets the stage for another possible trip to the State 4A Tournament next week.
The CRUSADERS out-fire the ROCKETS and ADVANCE!
It's the time of season in high school basketball that you either "do" or "die"...Thursday evening at Rose Hill, the Wellington Boys were the "do" boys and walked away with a 59-44 Sub-State 4A victory over the host Rose Hill. The game was close thru 2 qtrs. but after halftime, Wellington got the hot hand and pulled away, after being up only 2, they outscored the Rockets 22-14 and 17-12 the final 2 qtrs for the easy 15 pt. victory. Cade Phelps, Ian King and A.J. Snipes were scoring machines, combining for 49 of the 59 team points. The win (their 8th of the season) keeps their hopes alive and gives them the shot any team wants, a chance to advance on to the State 4A Tournament next week in Salina. The only obstacle in their way now is Mulvane.
In the opener Thursday, Mulvane downed Winfield 60-47 to advance to the championship showdown with the Crusaders Saturday evening at 7:30PM. This 4A Boys Sub-State Championship game should be a good one! It will be the 4th time this season Mulvane and Wellington will have played...to date, Mulvane leads that series 2-1, having won at home and at the Chaparral Roadrunner Classic back in January. The Crusaders topped the Wildcats on our home court just a couple weeks ago. Forget about the 2-1 stuff though (except the part where they say it's hard to beat someone 3 times in 1 year!), if you add up all the points each team has scored against the other this season in those 3 games - it be 207 and 207!
It is NEA's "Read Across America Day" today across the nation. A program that begun in 1998, today is the 20th observation of the event. Here in Wellington, members of WHS's "Crusaders of the Stage" performed at the elementary schools and then spent time in each classroom reading to the students. An awesome event and awesome way to encourage and reward reading. First stop was Washington Elementary this morning with more stops planned for Eisenhower, Lincoln and Kennedy by school day's end.

State Championship! Freshman Kanden Young and Junior Ian Groom were also in action on Friday, both ended up 0-2 but both battled hard and represented well! Congrats to all 3 - special congrats to Aaron - you are a medalist CRUSADER and still have 1 more year to go - dare to dream - all of you!!
