WRC GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION
July 2, 2015 Ribbon Cutting
WRC Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting
The Grand Opening for the new WRC Facility at 202 S. Jefferson was held Thursday afternoon. An official ribbon-cutting took place shortly after 3PM which was followed by refreshments and tours of the new and newly updated facility - an awesome place that is getting RAVE reviews! Wellington's REC CENTER has an interesting past having first opened in 1943 where the Railroad Museum is now located in Sellers Park. In 1966 when the Elks Lodge moved from 202 S. Jefferson to their location on the north end of Wellington, the Harry L. Woods Estates bequeathed the structure on S. Jefferson to the WRC and it's home has been there ever since. A completely new, 2 story weightlifting/fitness facility was added onto the west side recently and upgrades to much of the rest were completed as well! Be sure to stop in and check it out if you haven't already! You will be impressed!

BRADEN STRUBLE SNAGS A POPUP @ SELLERS
Rotary with just 1 loss this season downed the Lions 8-1
Braden Struble - Wellington Rotary Baseball

All "4" Wellington 15U Babe Ruth squads were in action together at Hibbs-Hooten Field Monday evening for the last time this summer. The regular season ends on Thursday, the coaches will all get together over the 4th of July weekend and emerge with "3" All-Star Teams (13,14 and 15yo) that will commence "District" play shortly thereafter. Wellington has a rich tradition with Babe Ruth baseball and always represent well in post season play. In the opener Monday evening, it was league leading Wellington Rotary vs Wellington Lions. Rotary jumped out to a 7-0 lead before the Lions would score in the 4th. Solid ball for both teams much of the evening - Rotary has some solid batters. Final score ended up being 8-1. The Lions finish their season this evening at Oxford, Rotary hosts Oxford here on Thursday for their finale. No score for the nightcap between Wellington Banks and Wellington Knights. The Banks wrap up tonight (Tues) as well at Conway Springs. The Knights will complete the double-header package and their season on Thursday here vs Conway Springs, just prior to the aforementioned Oxford vs Rotary contest. Good Luck to All! It's time to get fired up for DISTRICT PLAY!
Speaking of District Play, the 13yo All-Stars will be heading to Derby with games commencing on July 13th. The first place finisher there will advance on to the State 13yo tournament at Cottonwood Falls beginning July 23rd. The 14yo All-Stars travel to Howard for District action beginning July 14th. The first place finisher then advances on to the 14yo State Tournament in Newton beginning July 23rd as well. Last but not least, the 13-15yo All-Stars will battle at Derby as well with games beginning July 13th. Both the first and second place finishers will advance to the 13-15yo State Tournament in Frontenac beginning, like the other State Tournaments, on July 23rd. More about the WELLINGTON ALL-STARS SOON!

SR. BABE RUTH MOVES TO 11-2!
Sr. Babe Ruth Baseball @ Sellers
PEYTON NOLAN BEATS THE THROW @ HOME!

Trailing by 4 without ever having batted, Wellington Sr. Babe Ruth came from behind, scoring in every inning vs Rose Hill in game #1 at Hibbs-Hooten field Tuesday evening to eventually run-rule the visitors in a 14-4 victory. Starting pitcher Peyton Nolan for Wellington in Game #1 had some difficulties early on (which was unusual for Peyton) and was eventually relieved by Cullin Reynolds in the first inning. Cullin would stay on the mound for the duration and secure the 10th win for the home team this season. (Nightcap score Wellington 14 Rose Hill 2 for win # 11) Wellington played well overall with balanced hitting and base-running. The squad is playing short too as some of the starters are involved with wheat harvest now so are unable to make the games. If you haven't been able to make any games, get out and enjoy some baseball soon! America's favorite past time is in full swing! GO WELLINGTON!
