Congratulations GENTLEMEN! Awesome Seasons!

******************************

The 2019-2020 season coming to a close also, and sadly means, "8" of this year's players graduate and will not return to the CRUSADER HARDWOOD again as active Crusaders. Always a fretful moment when that realization sets in for them and their fans.

So, a Crusader website salute to these ELITE 8 we've grown so used to seeing on the court of play for the past 6 years.

Seniors


GIRLS: Kylie Aufdengarten, Natalie Henning, McKenna Jones

BOYS: Tyler Brown, Zane Cornejo, Cade Fairbanks, John Long, Austin Soles

Best wishes to all of you - you were appreciated and will be missed!

The Crusaders jumped out early on the Rockets Friday at WHS and led by 8 points at halftime. Rose Hill cut that deficit in half by the end of 3, finding themselves down just 4. A high scoring game by Wellington's Junior Tanner Meyer would eventually seal the deal for the home team! Tanner pumped in 14 in the 3rd, keeping the visiting Rockets at a distance. Final score was RHHS 57 WHS 60!

Senior Night BASKETBALL

Mid-season tournaments are over and all the squads are back together again...well, almost. The WHS Girls program whose numbers were down a bit this year, resulting in no "C" Team, those numbers were down even more Tuesday when about 1/3 of the squad was home ill. Consequently, on the girls side, only the Varsity game was played. (See Girls Post for info about that).

In the boys Varsity game, Wellington maintained early with good outside shooting from Brown and Meyer, and the score was knotted at 10 at one point. Buhler began to pull away in the 2nd qtr and lead by 8 at halftime. Buhler picked up the pace after the break, outscoring Wellington 39-15 down the stretch, final score BHS 59 WHS 27.

The JV boys found success, moving their record to 2-9, the C Team Boys came up short 33-42.

Between the Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys games, this year's "basketball" seniors and their parents were honored. 10 seniors, all totaled...

Tyler Brown, son of Jared and Sammie Brown
Zane Cornejo, son of Jamie and Maria Cornejo
Cade Fairbanks, son of Jayson and Shanna Fairbanks

WHS BOYS BASKETBALL
HERE vs Collegiate
Tuesday, January 14, 2020

The Varsity Crusader Boys shot out to an 11-3 lead on Collegiate Tuesday evening, didn't take the Spartans long to "right" their ship and by 1st quarters' end, Collegiate was up 30-15, at halftime 42-20. The Spartans were high percentage shooters, knocking down "10" 3's to the Crusaders "5", and did so with high accuracy. They had the height advantage as well. Collegiates' platooning system allows a fresh five on the court a greater amount of time, too. A Purdue University scout was on hand, checking out one (or more, I don't know) of the Spartans. A tough night overall for the boys in red.

Tanner Meyer

The JV Boys couldn't get anything to drop, control of that contest lost early on by the Crusaders. In opening action, the "C" Team Boys did take the Spartans to overtime, unfortunately came up just short in that eventual outcome.

Austin Soles 21 pts

The Crusaders chalked up 2 wins in 3 games Tuesday evening in their 2020 opener here at HOME vs the Winfield Vikings. Exciting action, especially in the varsity game. The Crusaders, lead by Senior Austin Soles with 21 pts. and Junior Tanner Meyer with 20, were up by a dozen at halftime and somewhat in control. Winfield chipped away at that lead, reducing it to an 8 pt deficit after 3. The Vikings put more oars in the water in the 4th and nearly paddled into a victory. Winfield came up 1 pt shy of sending the contest to OT fortunately, and Wellington goes to .500 on the season, now 3-3. The JV squad continues to battle. Winfield's JV jumped out early, up 17-4 after 1 and 36-18 at half. The "C" Team squad had "4" young men in double figures, and chalked up their 4th win in 5 games, downing their young Viking counterparts 55-48. Logan Swingle lit it up again with 18. RJ Clift, Korbin Jones and Trent Bannister had the "hot hands" as well.

Both teams were red hot the opening quarter and the Crusaders lead going into the 2nd, 19-16. Mulvane would outscore the Crusaders in every subsequent quarter. Up only 3 at halftime, the Wildcats buried the boys in red in the 3rd, outscoring WHS 20-10, creating a deficit too large to overcome. The Crusaders lost their 8 last games after defeating Conway Springs at the Roadrunner Classic at Chaparral on January 18th.

A good contingent of players will be returning next season...this season ends at 4-15.

The boys in red stayed with the home team for a short while but the lead widened to 15 by halftime and 20 by 3rd qtrs. end. Ark City sealed the deal with authority down that final stretch, outscoring the Crusaders 16-5. Final Score WHS 34 ACHS 65

SIDE NOTE: The Lady Crusaders will make their bid for the State Tournament this evening (Saturday) @ 6PM vs host Ark City Lady Bulldogs. No doubt the crowd will be donning a lot of purple with Sub-State games being played on the Bulldogs home court. Wellington is the #1 seed on the girls side of things but Ark City will present a tremendous challenge. A Lady Crusader victory will return the WHS Girls to the 4A State Tournament for the 3rd consecutive year. GO BIG RED!!

SIDE NOTE 2: Seniors A.J. Snipes and Ian King left their marks on the scoring records at WHS. In the Career Scoring category, it's (1) Darin Miller with 1401, (2) A.J Snipes 1193 and (3) Ian King 1104. Congratulations to both A.J. and Ian for their respective scoring achievements!

Crusader Basketball 2018

The make-up games Monday evening at WHS with the Clearwater Indians went well for the Varsity and JV Boys! Last time these two Varsity Teams went head to head, the Indians won easily 51-39 (Chaparral Tournament).

The tables turned Monday evening and the Crusaders lit it up, inside and out. Probably the best game the Varsity Boys have played this season...let's just say they were a machine! It was SENIOR NIGHT and the seniors certainly did their part in the final 76-49 victory, scoring 60 of the 76 points, wrapping up the regular season with a big "W" and now (as the #4 seed), they prepare for 4A Sub-State action this coming Friday at Ark City HS vs the #1 seed and host Ark City.
Tip off for that game will be at 7:30PM. The winner will advance to the Sub-State Championship Saturday evening also at Ark City HS.

A.J. Snipes saw his first action Monday after a 3-4 week hiatus recovering from a concussion. He certainly didn't lose his touch, scoring 22 points in his return. But teammate Ian King, who has come on like gangbusters the past several games, took high point honors with 27. Great confidence and execution by these young men Monday evening. Congratulations Crusaders (and JV Crusaders) for your regular season and end of season (respectively) performances!

vs Buhler HERE
Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018

Crusader Basketball

The CRUSADERS hosted the Crusaders (Buhler) Tuesday afternoon and evening out at WHS. The northern Crusaders with quickness, hot shooting and precision passing, not to mention a Paul Bunyan sized center on their Varsity Squad, proved to be too much, the local red team dropped all "3" boys games to the visitors - here are the outcomes and individual scoring:

C-TEAM BOYS
The WHS boys let the game get away from them after battling hard early on. Final score was Buhler C-Team Boys 51, WHS 32.

Scoring:
Blake Saffell 10, Tanner Meyer 7, Trenton Bannister 6, John Long 4, Berkeley Wright 4, Kade Adams 1.

JV BOYS
BHS 65 WHS 35 (5-7) (2-3)

A lot of Wellington players scored during this contest but not near enough to make a difference in the end…Final Buhler JV Boys 65 WHS JV Boys 35.

Scoring:
Silas Popplewell 8, Zane Cornejo 5, Cade Fairbanks 5, John Long 4, Jacob Ewing 3, Austin Soles 3, Zander Vargas 3, Tyler Brown 2, Blake Rausch 2.

VARSITY BOYS
BHS 45 WHS 26 (4-10) (2-3)
The Varsity Buhler Boys are a good team.
They move fast, they move the ball fast and they have a Paul Bunyan in at center position. All of that combined, the Wellington Crusaders couldn’t muster enough offense to stay in pace but battled hard and kept it relatively close the first half before the northern Crusaders pulled away.

Scoring:
Ian King 16, Silas Popplewell 5, DeAndre Washington 4, Grey Hatfield 1

BOYS GAME ACTION PICS vs BUHLER

Next up for the Crusaders will be Andale HS, @ Andale this coming Friday, Feb. 9th. Action gets underway there at 4:15PM with C-Team Boys and JV Girls taking to the courts at that time…followed by JV Boys around 5:45, then Varsity Girls @ 6:00PM, followed by Varsity Boys around 7:30pm.

WHS vs El Dorado

Down 4 pts after 1 qtr of play, the Crusaders stepped it up a notch and by half lead by 3, 22-19. Wellington added to that lead in the 3rd qtr and would head down the stretch with the Wildcats with a mildly comfortable 6 point advantage, 35-29, and only 8 minutes to go. 

Turned out not to be a "good 8 minutes" for the visiting Crusaders, El Dorado put the pedal to the medal, outscoring WHS 17-4 and secured the non-league victory for their home crowd, final 46-39.

Senior guard AJ Snipes was on the bench in street clothes, recovering from a concussion.

THURSDAY 01.18.18

The Varsity Crusaders just two weeks ago,
 easily handled the Clearwater Indians (@ Clearwater), downing them 46-37. That defeat by the Indians must have sparked a degree of revenge - basically speaking, the Indians out-hustled the Crusaders in round 1 action of the annual Road Runner Classic at Chaparral HS, winning in the end 51-39. Cold shooting by the Crusaders added to their difficulties.

GAME ACTION PICS

The Crusaders go up against Conway Springs Friday @ 4:30PM Friday (Conway lost to Ark CIty) Ark City will take on Clearwater @ 8PM. On the other side of the bracket from Wednesday play, Belle Plaine downed Mulvane and Kingman defeated host Chaparral. Friday action finds Mulvane vs Chaparral @ 3PM, then Belle Plaine vs Kingman @ 6:30PM.

The "W's" continued throughout the evening, in both gymnasiums before relatively small crowds, perhaps due to the extreme cold conditions outside and the school still being on Holiday Break until Thursday. Those that did brave the elements (and were wearing red) had an enjoyable evening of Wellington basketball - here are the results from the boys action vs Mulvane - Great Job Crusaders!

Alumni Basketball Game 112617

An on and off tradition for many years and one that has consistently occurred since the new high school opened over 10 years ago, continued on Saturday (112617) when what we will now call, the Magnificent Seven, came home to WHS to scrimmage their younger counterparts as others had done with them at different times in the past. To be honest, the "old" boys didn't do too bad, minus a little huffin' and puffin' at times...(oh wait a minute, that was me walking up and down the side court taking pics!) :)

It was good to see Brian Peck, Austin Dunn, Trevor Nance, Mitch Spencer, Colin Reichenberger, Trey Vargas and Ryan Jenkins on scene for the event. (I left after the first hour or so of action so others may have appeared after my departure). A few were a bit "girthier" than when they donned the red and white uniforms back in their respective days, filling the paint quite adequately and offering up some good competition for the present day "inside" Dukes. Brian Peck, an accomplished high school and college golfer did mention golf wasn't as tiring (in between gasps for air), but he still drained at least "2" three's on the day. Mitch Spencer, the oldest alum on the court, held his own quite well and still appears to be in decent physical shape. (Rumor has it he and others play basketball during the noon hour at Memorial Auditorium)which just shows what a little physical activity can do for longevity and stamina. 

It's a fun event and one that benefits the program as well.It's always great when the old and new can mingle as one...I've been on the best ride of my existence for the past 19 years doing just that...CRUSADERS FOR LIFE, just another example.

2016-2017

Crusader Basketball Camp
The WHS Crusader Boys were coming on strong at just the right time of the season, easily downing host Rose Hill on Thursday in opening day 4A Sub-State action 59-44. In the Championship Final Saturday vs Mulvane, the Wildcats jumped out early on the Crusaders but the RED TEAM battled back. At halftime, it was knotted at 28! Hot outside shooting though by Mulvane would prove the difference in the end. Numerous "3's" throughout the game stretched the Wildcat lead, and eventually a 2nd trip in 3 years to the State 4A Tournament for the Crusaders was in jeopardy. At the final buzzer, the Wildcats were on top 65-57 and the season would end for Wellington @ 8-14. Mulvane advances on to Salina for State Tournament action commencing on Wednesday. Their record now stands at 9-13 and they won't be the only sub .500 team at Tony's Pizza Event Center when the whistle blows on Wednesday. Congratulations to Wellington for an "almost" season of greater success - many close battles, overtime games and more. Most if not all of the regular starters will return next year which bodes well for the 2017-2018 season. Congrats on a rugged and hard fought season Crusaders! SCORING: A.J. Snipes 28, Ian King 7, Silas Popplewell 7, Cade Phelps 6, Grey Hatfield 3, Will Long 2, Jack Walton 2, Therin Frame 2.

It's the time of season in high school basketball
 that you either "do" or "die"...Thursday evening at Rose Hill, the Wellington Boys were the "do" boys and walked away with a 59-44 Sub-State 4A victory over the host Rose Hill. The game was close thru 2 qtrs. but after halftime, Wellington got the hot hand and pulled away, after being up only 2, they outscored the Rockets 22-14 and 17-12 the final 2 qtrs for the easy 15 pt. victory. Cade Phelps, Ian King and A.J. Snipes were scoring machines, combining for 49 of the 59 team points. The win (their 8th of the season) keeps their hopes alive and gives them the shot any team wants, a chance to advance on to the State 4A Tournament next week in Salina. The only obstacle in their way now is Mulvane.

In the opener Thursday, Mulvane downed Winfield 60-47 to advance to the championship showdown with the Crusaders Saturday evening at 7:30PM. This 4A Boys Sub-State Championship game should be a good one! It will be the 4th time this season Mulvane and Wellington will have played...to date, Mulvane leads that series 2-1, having won at home and at the Chaparral Roadrunner Classic back in January. The Crusaders topped the Wildcats on our home court just a couple weeks ago. Forget about the 2-1 stuff though (except the part where they say it's hard to beat someone 3 times in 1 year!), if you add up all the points each team has scored against the other this season in those 3 games - it be 207 and 207!

The Crusaders looked destined after 1 half of play Tuesday evening
 to be heading for an 0-1 start on their 2016-17 season under the direction of new head coach Rick Roitman. Down 28-17 to Conway Springs, the Dukes were not firing on all 8 cylinders and the Cardinals were taking the advantage. What a difference a half can make though - the boys in white (Wellington) found direction and purpose in the 2nd half, rallying to tie the score after 4 qtrs and then battling through "3" OT's before pulling out the 2 pt, 52-50 victory. SCORING:Antoine Snipes 16, Ian King 14, Cade Phelps 13, Therin Frame 6, Connor Burnett 3 // Next up - HAVEN HS @ 4:45PM Friday (@ Kingman) SIDE NOTE: The JV Boys dominated in the 2nd half to down Conway Springs 51-25! MORE DETAILS
