SUMMER 2018 DUKES BASEBALL
Some fun baseball action on July 28th at Hibbs-Hooten...some recent grads (mostly 2015) and present Crusader varsity players squared off in a pick-up game if you will - 9 innings of Crusader brotherhood and family...these pics speak to that. It was great to see everyone even though they just graduated 2 years ago! (They're always in a hurry to get out of high school and then they can't wait to get back) - that is called "normal" and I love it!! CRUSADERS FOR LIFE!

VARSITY CRUSADERS vs MULVANE 042017
It was a SPLIT for the Varsity and JV Boys Thursday down and around Sellers Park. The Crusaders played host to the Mulvane Wildcats and everyone went home with at least partial smiles for the evening. In the varsity opener, down 5-6 in the bottom of the 7th, Cade Phelps busted a walk-off double scoring two runs and the win! In their nightcap, enough "mo" didn't show and the Crusaders were run-ruled in 5 innings, 11-1.
CRUSADER "C" TEAM vs Rose Hill 041117
The WHS "C" Team Baseball squad hosted Rose Hill Tuesday afternoon at 9th St. It was a sweep for the Crusaders, 7-3, 18-9!

VARSITY CRUSADERS vs AUGUSTA 041017
The WHS Varsity Baseball squad was in action again at HOME on Monday vs Augusta. The boys in red were hungry for a win after the two tough losses on Friday to Collegiate. Down 6-1 in the bottom of the 7th, the DUKES exploded for 5 runs to tie it up and send it into extra innings. The Crusaders and Orioles would battle for supremacy the next 4 innings when unfortunately the flood gates opened for Augusta and a 9 run 11th inning rally put the 3rd "L" of the season on the DUKES. What a battle though - great effort!! Wellington's fortunes would change in the nightcap - the boys in red, a little peeved perhaps from the outcome of GAME 1, took it to the ORIOLES, run ruling them in 5 innings - final score 11-1! Awesome finish!!
VARSITY CRUSADERS vs COLLEGIATE 040717
The now (1-2) Varsity Crusader Baseball Squad had their season "HOME" opener Friday evening down at Sellers Park. (actually make-up games from 2 days earlier postponed due to rain) The field looks UNBELIEVABLY FANTASTIC - you can check it out in some of the pics below. Unfortunately, Collegiate got the best of the boys in red Friday, winning both contests, 5-1 and 9-1. We'll have GAME STATS when they become available. Next up Augusta on Monday! ((1-2) Varsity Boys HERE / (2-0) JV Boys @ Augusta) The (2-0) Varsity and (?-?) JV Softball squads will have their season "HOME" openers out at Worden Park on Monday as well, also vs Augusta. GO BIG RED!
