Season Ends For Lady Crusader Volleyball

The 2018 WHS Volleyball Season came to a close on Saturday @ Rose Hill HS. 4A Sub-State action vs Nickerson didn't produce the "W" needed to advance - the Lady Crusader underclassmen will say good-bye to the courts until the 2019 season rolls around - 7 Seniors will say good-bye forever. It's always difficult when season's end, especially for the graduating Seniors. Saw several recent graduates at Sub-State 4A action in Rose Hill - the ladies have a love for the game and as their predecessors, they will be missed.

Loss Hurts - Changes Nothing Though - GO BIG RED!

The 4A Brackets are out for playoff action (see link below) which will begin Friday. Turns out, the loss to Mulvane did nothing to alter the outcome for who we would play this coming Friday. The Crusaders went in as #2 seed, likely to face #15 seed Rose Hill week #9, and emerged as the #2 seed and will play Rose Hill this coming Friday HERE, despite the loss to the Wildcats who end up the #4 seed. This will perhaps catch the attention of a couple of Mulvane players who while exiting the field were letting the crowd know they were the #2 seed now.** Oops.

KWHS NEWS Seeks Creative Assistance with LOGO!

This is an exciting semester for those of us involved with launching a "NEWSCAST" at Wellington High School. Since the beginning of the school year, KWHS NEWS (and www.kwhs.online), have been in the works...it is a building process but we are getting there. Many items are needed, we are acquiring those as we can...and we anticipate the first official newscast by the end of the 1st week in November.

WHAT WE NEED NOW IS A "KWHS NEWS" LOGO!!!

Congratulations to Wellington HS Graduate and now Lady Husker Basketball player at Nebraska - Grace Mitchell, daughter of Jud Mitchell, owner of Sumner Communications here in Wellington, and Cathy Mitchell. Grace was recently named a BIG TEN DISTINGUISHED SCHOLAR, a prestigious award bestowed upon BIG TEN student-athletes who have recorded a minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.7 or higher for the previous academic year, in this case 2017-2018.

A Look at THE LOUGH BROTHERS!

Larance & Carrie Lough probably had no idea, a dozen or so years ago, when they presented a small "roll-out" piano to their first-born, Mason, who was 3 at the time. It was of immediate interest to their son, and when, a couple of years later, a relative purchased a nicer keyboard for the boy, it became clear the young man possessed exceptional musical abilities. "At age 5, Mason could listen to a song, turn to his keyboard and play it," mother Carrie shared in a sit-down with the two and younger brother and musician Hunter recently.
