Collegiate HS officials want to remind those CRUSADER FANS attending the Varsity Football Game THERE on Friday, to utilize the parking lot off of WEBB RD instead of 13th St if possible. The former will place you much closer to the VISITOR STANDS, eliminating the need for a extra long walk from your car. GO BIG RED!!

Wednesday, September 28, 2016
On Wednesday the team traveled to Circle for a makeup meet.
Playing #1 singles was Lexi Saffell who was seeded 4th overall out of 6 players. Lexi won her opening match 8-4 over Dashner from El Dorado. Then she played state medalist Fugit from Andover Central and lost 1-8. In her final match Saffell played the #2 seed White from Buhler and won 8-4 to take 3rd. Lexi did very well today that Buhler match was a good win.
Madison Lewellen played #2 singles and won her opener 8-1 over Taylor from Neodesha. She then dropped a heartbreaker to Wicks from Circle in a tiebreak. In her final match she lost to Page from Andover Central which placed her 4th.
One of the other highlights of the day was the #1 doubles team of Mekenna Adams & Kylie Aufdengarten. The pair got the #3 seed and won their opening match over Circle 8-1. In their next match they had to play a Andover Central team that has had a great season so far. Wellington took the lead and kept it close then won 8-5. In the finals they played a familiar opponent in Buhler. Buhler beat Wellington 8-2 in the first meet of the year. This time the tides turned and Adams & Aufdengarten won 8-5 to win the championship. It was good to beat them finally at #1 doubles, we haven't beaten them in about six years.
At #2 doubles Lauryn Snipes & Avery Rusk lost their opening match to Andover Central 5-8. The pair then had a bye and then beat El Dorado 8-1 to finish 3rd overall. It was nice to bring home several medals in the last two days. League tennis is next Monday at Buhler and regionals at Pratt next Friday and Saturday.
KSHSAA 2016-2017 CLASSIFICATIONS & ENROLLMENTS
Just released this morning (Monday) by KSHSAA!
Sophomore CHI BARTON snags a reception!
In sub-varsity (Frosh/Soph) football action Monday, the Crusaders found themselves down 0-12 after 1, but battled back to a 12-12 tie at the halfway point. Miscues in the 2nd half however were critical for the young Crusader team and Andale took advantage. A strong showing on the part of the Crusaders nonetheless. Wellington 18 Andale 27

The undefeated Andale Indians were at Sellers Friday evening for week 4 varsity football action. Wellington, at 0-3 going in had their hands full with a football program that has excelled for many years now. With a final score of 47-7 one would think nothing positive happened on the evening but don't think that for a minute. The Crusaders never did quit, the attitude on the sideline was one of grit and determination to stay the course and give the Indians their best shot. Their were signs of improvement and with "3" varsity players now out with injury (Lukas Soria, Connor Burnett and Aaron Shoemann), the remaining contingent stood tall and fought back as hard as they could. A late game TD by seniors Chris Kop and a Colton Glover kicked extra point removed the goose egg from the scoreboard and in the opinion of this writer, symbolically stated - we are on our way back folks...the road is long but the direction is true. I was proud of our boys, their attitude and their spunkiness was notable, again, against a formidable foe with deep talent and tradition. Andale scored every quarter, leading 40-0 at halftime. Overall, the Crusaders had 160 yds of total offense, 82 rushing and 78 passing. Cade Phelps completed 6 of 12, with 4 receptions for 46 yds for Joe Ybarra, 1 for 25 yds for Jack Walton (a beautiful catch right down the middle of the field) and 1 for 7 yds for DeAndre Washington. Chris Kop rushed for 52 yds including the 25 yd TD run, Deyton Arajuo 5 carries for 34 yds, Colton Glover 10 carries for 13 yds,, QB Cade Phelps 3 carries for 1 yd and Trayson Probst 1 for -18 yds (result of an errant snap on a punt). Andale put up 355 yds total, 40 of that in the air, 315 on the ground. There was a running clock beginning early in the 3rd which of course would reduce the offensive opportunities for both. Andale had 12 first downs to Wellington's 8. No additional significant injuries occurred so onward and upward Crusaders! Next up, there, COLLEGIATE.

It was a close battle for the 8th grade Knights Thursday evening but in the end, El Dorado would squeak out a victory when a last minute drive by the Knights came up short. The Knights fall to 0-4 on the season as a result of this close contest.
The 7th grade Knights advanced their season record to 2-2 on Thursday, easily downing El Dorado in a 44-18 romp. Kudos to the whole squad and especially to Jay Ybarra who scored "5" TD's and a 2 pt. conversion just for good measure.
Great Job Knights!
Next action is Thursday, HERE vs Clearwater
Keep up the good work gentlemen!
