State Tennis Brock & Cramer
After playing superbly Friday in the opening rounds of the State 4A Boys Tennis Tournament in Prairie Village, WHS Senior Brock Edwards will be bringing some HARDWARE home! Brock went 3-1 on Friday to secure that outcome - he perhaps picked up a bit of good KARMA as well from Cramer Hass, WHS 1983 State Tennis Champion who was there to offer his Crusaderly support to Brock!! (above pic) Brock's last victory on Friday was a come from behind, tie-break, fighting cramps and fatigue victory for the Crusader! On Saturday Brock lost his first match to Independence, won his 2nd match 9-2 and last match 9-3 to finish 9th in the State 4A Boys Tennis Tournament - in a very strong field of contenders. Congratulations Brock - that is awesome and Wellington is proud of you for sure!! Great Job Crusader - bringing home some hardware - fantastic!!!

CHRIS KOP & JAYCEE SCHETTLER

Outstanding WHS Athletes 2017
The annual WHS SPORTS BANQUET with new enhancements was held Wednesday evening out at the HOME OF THE CRUSADERS and a large contingent of Crusader Fans were on hand for the event. The program was an opportunity for the coaches to honor their student-athletes with words, with letters, with pins and with wisdom. Many highlights during the affair, from Crusader Club President Colby Zeka presenting a $5,000.00 check to WHS Athletic Director Luke Smith, to Senior Michael Billington being named the 2017 "Coach Giff" True Crusader Award recipient! The climax of course was the announcement of this school year's outstanding male and female athletes - those honors going to Seniors Chris Kop (Football and Track) and Jaycee Schettler (Cross Country, Powerlifting and Track). Thank you CRUSADER CLUB, congratulations to MICHAEL BILLINGTON and double congratulations to CHRIS KOP & JAYCEE SCHETTLER. Congratulations to a fine group of student-athletes and coaches as well. Guest Speaker Kelly Adams, the 1990 Outstanding WHS Male Athlete summed it up best for us all to hear - "set goals, get involved, live your life in such a way to limit regrets later on"...great words, great school, great futures. A pot-luck dinner was held afterwards in the Commons...proud to be a Crusader this day and every day!

David Klein and David Carroll - WHS Class of 1964!
Class of 64 Restoration
Many of us remember the CRUSADER HEAD that hung outside on the south gym wall at the old high school (which is now the middle school) because it hung there since the early 60's. The new Pod construction in the late 60's/early 70's partially blocked the view and then the remodel of the building with the new entrance (around 2005) pretty much obstructed the view of the Crusader Head except from the back parking lot. During the latest construction period (new aux. gym, etc.), the METAL MASCOT was taken down. To cut to the chase - WHS Class of 1964 classmates David Carroll and David Klein refurbished the CRUSADER HEAD as you can see in the above picture and now the new MASCOT will hang inside at WHS in the Commons area for everyone to enjoy once again. Awesome job David and David - true Crusaders for Life for sure - thanks gentlemen!! (courtesy photo)

Tennis Team Water Color
Coach Alan Keller Update: Best day in 5 years for Wellington Boys Tennis!!!! And almost an exceptional day! Brock Edwards had Luke Bass, Independence (one of the best players in the State) on the ropes but came up a little short and lost a very close match in a Tiebreaker. Luke was seeded #1 out of 16 players, Brock #4. They met in the semi-final match and stood toe to toe slugging it out. Brock never flinched, Luke just hit some spectacular shots at the right time which made the difference. Very, very proud of Brock's effort! Even though he lost, he gained the favor of many coaches who watched and they now know... Brock Edwards from Wellington High School is a serious threat to anyone on the court across from him. Then there was Will Long who got the 7th seed out of the same group of 16. Will worked his magic again... first confusing, confounding, then beating some very good players. He finished the day at #5 and along the way has compiled a team best 16 and 3 record going into the League Tournament next Monday. Our two doubles teams continue to struggle, but Carson LeGrand/John Long managed to give the team a very much needed 10 points with a 7th place finish, after getting a #10 seed. Juniors Jaden Adams/Jared Oathout managed to win 2 matches out of 4 played and are gaining valuable experience and getting better. This was their first time playing together and they were seeded 14th out of 16. This was a tough tournament with some very good schools/players.. and as a team, we finished 3rd!!! Only Independence and Derby finished better. But yesterday, we were better than Campus, Pittsburg, Newton, Maize South and Winfield. Great Day for Wellington!!

The WMS 6th Graders were participating Tuesday in the Pheasant Forever and Quail Forever's Youth Pollinator Habitat Program just north of the 9th Street Baseball Diamond. This is the 2nd year for the project, administered by 6th grade Social Studies instructor Brandon Wilmoth...here's a description of what the program is about:
Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s Youth Pollinator Habitat Program provides support to over 700 grassroots chapters and their partners across the country to engage youth, families and communities in establishing pollinator habitat projects. The program’s objectives are to increase awareness about declining pollinator populations, educate the general public on the importance of pollinator habitat and establish quality pollinator habitat across the country. The program will provide tools for chapters and their partners to work with local community partners to create habitat projects that involve youth, school and community groups.

Program support includes training on how to plan, plant and manage a pollinator project from start to finish. Additionally, conservation/pollinator curriculum for classrooms, hands-on educational activities and monitoring activities for after the project is established are provided. Project benefits include quality pollinator foraging and nesting habitat, but also opportunities for youth to get outside and gain an appreciation for wildlife and conservation.

WHS SERVICE DAY 2017
Wednesday was the 6th or 7th annual WHS SERVICE DAY! 100's of Crusaders fanned out across the community via vans, buses or bipedalistic means - cleaning, sweeping, raking, digging, painting, filing, organizing, cooking and more! The students reconvened at their HOME BASE - WHS, ate lunch together and participated in "student-planned" activities all afternoon, i.e. volleyball, dodgeball, karaoke, a obstacle course and more! Awesome job - this annual event always brings SMILES to the doers and the receivers - we are ONE and this event makes that even more evident!
WAY TO GO CRUSADERS!!

The Varsity and Jr. Varsity Lady Crusader softball squads had their season "HOME" openers Monday evening out at Worden Park. Not a bad evening at all weather-wise, a little windy but just warm enough to make it quite bearable for most of the evening. Mixed results from Field #1 and Field #2 action vs the Lady Orioles of Augusta. In the opener, with Madi Lewellen on the mound, the Lady Crusaders suffered numerous errors resulting in a 6 inning win for the visiting team in orange, 15-4. Much like the BOYS over at HIBBS-HOOTEN, the nightcap was going to be the HOME TEAM's to claim and the Varsity Lady Crusaders did just that with Brooke McCorkle on the mound. Down 10-7 in the bottom of the 7th, Wellington touched home plate 4 times and secured the come from behind victory, final score 11-10! Whew! AWESOME!! The Varsity Lady Crusaders are 3-1 on the season and head to Andale on Thursday for make-up action there. (postponed games from WEEK #1 of the season) The JV Lady Crusaders battled hard and came up short in their opener 3-7. No report on the JV nightcap outcome.

The WHS Varsity Baseball squad was in action again at HOME on Monday vs Augusta. The boys in red were hungry for a win after the two tough losses on Friday to Collegiate. Down 6-1 in the bottom of the 7th, the DUKES exploded for 5 runs to tie it up and send it into extra innings. The Crusaders and Orioles would battle for supremacy the next 4 innings when unfortunately the flood gates opened for Augusta and a 9 run 11th inning rally put the 3rd "L" of the season on the DUKES. What a battle though - great effort!! Wellington's fortunes would change in the nightcap - the boys in red, a little peeved perhaps from the outcome of GAME 1, took it to the ORIOLES, run ruling them in 5 innings - final score 11-1! Awesome finish!!

Each part of the sandwich explained a different part of the book, ex. the cheese was the character description, the meat was the setting and so on. Very Creative!!
