First WHS DUKE
THE HISTORY OF OUR WHS DUKE!
The 1st WHS Duke was crowned at the Basketball Bounce on March 15, 1948! His name was Neel Goodrum. Other candidates included Charles Tibbs, Eddie Howell, Gordon Goodrum and Joe Smith. The MEGAPHONE (yearbook) sponsor at the time, a Ms. Helen Mills, was quoted saying at the first crowning, "We hope the Duke of Wellington will become a lasting tradition and a pleasant memory of high school life..." Well Ms. Mills, the 70th DUKE of WELLINGTON will be crowned in less than 2 weeks - your hope in 1948 lives on in 2017 at the HOME OF THE CRUSADERS - WHS!

UPDATE: The Andale Varsity Wrestlers defeated Rose Hill Thursday evening 43-33. The Andale victory handed the AVCTL DIV IV LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP to the CRUSADERS!
Matt McComb
220 lb. MATT McCOMB SEALS THE DEAL!
Exciting wrestling action out at WHS Thursday evening - league dual action with Mulvane with the league title still up for grabs. Mulvane jumped out early on the Crusaders, winning 3 of the first 4 matches (all by pins) before the Crusaders would begin their rally to victory, secured by 220 lb Matt McComb who unexpectedly and heroically, pinned his opponent to the joyous outcry of fans and teammates - really great stuff! In the end it was Wellington 39 Mulvane 34. Wellington and Mulvane are now both at 3-1 in league, Rose Hill is 1-1 and has duals with Andale and Clearwater soon, those results will determine league results in the end. At worse though, the Crusaders have sealed up at least a CO-CHAMPIONSHIP for 2017. Here are Thursday's results:
106 - Montana Heacock (pin - loss) 0-6
113 - Tim Schmidt (13-9 dec - win) 3-6
120 - Malachi Macias (pin - loss) 3-12
126 - Daniel Schmidt (pin - loss) 3-18
132 - Blake Bales (open - win) 9-18
138 - Kyle Clem (pin - win) 15 - 18
145 - Kadin Heacock (pin - win) 21-18
152 - Kanden Young (pin - loss) 21-24
160 - Seth Tunnell (12-0 dec - loss) 21-28
170 - Dylan Ferguson (4-0 dec - win) 24-28
182 - Aaron Shoemann (7-2 dec - win) 27-28

MARISA BLACK / ALL-STATE HONOR BAND SELECTEE!!
Marisa Black
On Saturday, Jan. 7th, Marisa Black and Alex Hardin auditioned for the All-State Honor Band that will rehearse and perform as a part of the Kansas Music Educators Association In-Service Workshop to be held Feb. 23rd to 25th in Wichita. Marisa was selected to be a part of this band, earning a 4th chair seating in the flute section out of the 12 others that were selected. Marisa competed against students from all over Kansas. To win a spot, and to place so high, in this Honor Band is a very difficult thing to do, and is a true honor. Alex didn't make the final cut but to audition for the All-State Honor Band is a remarkable achievement in and of itself. Congrats to Marisa and to Alex for their respective outcomes in band this year! Two more young folks at WHS that the entire community can be proud of!!

Quoting from the Kansas Music Educators Association website, "The KMEA All-State Bands perform each year at the annual In-Service Workshop at the Century II Convention Center in Wichita. Students are selected via a rigorous audition process that starts at the district level. Students who perform at the district level are then eligible to audition for selection to the All-State instrumental ensembles. Thus, the All-State student musicians are truly “the best of the best.”" Congrats again to these fine Crusaders!
