CRUSADERS RALLY IN "3" OT THRILLER FOR THE WIN!
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!

LADY CRUSADER TOP SCORER LAURYN SNIPES WITH 16!
In a contest much closer than the score would indicate, the Lady Crusaders are off to a 1-0 start on the 2016-17 basketball season, downing Conway Springs in round 1 action at the 15th annual Kingman Eagle Classic, 46-39. Wellington trailed the Lady Cardinals at halftime 18-19 but a strong 4th qtr rally secured the victory. Scoring: Lauryn Snipes 16, Avery Rusk 14, Shayland French 12, Tayland French 4 // Next up - HAVEN HS @ 3:00PM Friday (@ Kingman)SIDE NOTE: The JV Girls came up short against Conway Springs 42-27!

Two Crusader Band members won positions in the Kansas Music Educators Association South Central District Honor Band. They are Marisa Black and Alex Hardin. They both had to go through a very competitive and rigorous audition process that they had been preparing for since the beginning of the school year. The Honor Band rehearsed and presented a concert at Wichita East High School last Saturday. This band was composed of the very finest high school musicians in the south central part of Kansas By winning the audition process for the district band, they are qualified to audition for the State Honor Band to be held in February. This is a very high honor. Proud of these Crusaders!!

The WHS Leadership class and The Lions Club are joining forces this holiday season to bring the high school and community Operation Holiday. Operation Holiday is adopting families in the community for the Christmas season to bring them presents and joy for the holidays.
Both WMS and WHS "Circle of Friends" converged on the WHS Commons area Friday afternoon for 2 hours of comradery, fun and friendship. Numerous games were played including a scavenger hunt - it was a large gathering overall with lots of smiles to go-round! For those that might not know, "Circle of Friends" is an innovative mentoring program matching Special Education students with regular education peers.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING from many of your area schools! The WMS Leadership Group dropped off "3" truckloads of food and $590 cash Monday morning at the Wellington Food Bank! Eisenhower contributed over 2,200 canned items and the WHS Leadership Group - over 1,300 lbs of food!
More to come for Christmas - stay tuned!!
The students at WHS have been "CANNING THEIR TEACHERS" this week, in the hopes of bringing enough food items to class to physically "cover the door up to the handle" by this morning so they could have a free day today in that class. Haven't gotten the official tally yet from WHS STUCO who sponsors this annual event but all the food was then going to be taken downtown to the food bank...way to go Crusaders. Similar drives have gone on at other schools this week as well.
Here are members of the WHS CLAY TARGET TEAM proudly posing with their 2nd place conference trophy!
