Winter Activity Recommendations Moved On to Board of Directors
Winter Sports practices are underway this week at WHS! Boys & Girls Basketball, Boys & Girls Wrestling, and Boys & Girls Powerlifting. Visited all those venues on Wednesday - here are your Wellington Crusaders and Lady Crusaders, hard at it after school!
The 2020 WHS Varsity Football season came to an end Friday evening here at HOME vs historical rival Ark City, final score 27-6. Of course, due to Covid and Health Dept. restrictions, the 25% capacity crowd would have been much larger, but not for, those aforementioned conditions. Even with the fans absence, there's still a lot of "awesomeness" to be in the stadium or along the sideline. Just soaking in the atmosphere, and enjoying a challenging sport, played out by the hearts and souls of our community, our kids.
An exciting run by the Lady Crusaders, at Saturday's 4A Sub-State tournament held here at WHS. In the semi-final rounds, it was Clearwater over Winfield and Wellington over Mulvane, both matches, 2 set matches. The "2" advanced to the Championship Final and what a first set in the final, it was. Back and forth, and unfortunately a 26-28 victory for the visiting Lady Indians. The "mo" slipped a bit and Clearwater wrapped it all up in 2 sets, with a 25-12 victory in the latter.
WHS Jr. Camden Parkey finished 70th Saturday, in a field of 95 runners at the 4A Boys 5K event that took place at 9:30 Saturday. His time, 19:12.57. Winning the gold was Tanner Newkirk, Topeka Hayden, with a time of 15:53.32. Camden qualified for the State Meet last weekend at the 4A Regional in Chanute, where he ran his personal best of 18:18. It's been a great season for Camden and a great Senior Year coming up! Way to represent Crusader and congratulations making it all the way to STATE!!
The now (3-5) IRONDUKES pulled in their 2nd win in as many weeks, downing the Mulvane Wildcats Friday evening at Sellers Park, 20-13! It was a close contest, knotted at 7 at halftime. The Crusaders were able to put points on the board and the defense kept the Wildcats out of the endzone the last 13+ minutes of the game. Strong showing by QB Berkeley Wright who passed for 177 yds, including a 57 yarder to Cope Henry. Dustyn Schettler shined, 218 yds of offense from this young man, including a 64 yd romp to paydirt!
Football alums always talk about all the great things that surround being a Crusader football player...and it's not always about football either. It's about community, it's about caring, it's about making two young boy's in this case, a morning they'll never forget.
Jace Conrad and his younger brother Jarek, sons of Jake and Megan Conrad, were guests of the Crusader coaches and players Thursday morning at their last practice before Friday evening's action with Mulvane HERE. It was a very special time indeed.
