Kellie Kemper - UCA Award Winner!

Congrats to WHS Cheerleader Kellie Kemper!

At their recent UCA Summer Camp, the "Pin It Forward" award was presented to Kellie! This award goes to an all American cheerleader that displays good leadership, positive attitude, and exceptional sportsmanship. WHS is so proud that UCA Staff member, Maggie, picked Kellie Kemper for this award! Way to go Kellie!!

Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) was founded in 1974 by Jeff Webb to provide high quality educational training for college and high school cheerleaders through summer camps and clinics on college campuses.

During its first couple of years, the company literally operated out of Jeff’s apartment in Memphis, Tennessee. Instructors were hired from college squads and 4000 students attended Varsity’s 24 camps in the Midwest and the South during the summer of 1975.

During the next several years, UCA began to rapidly expand as their reputation for outstanding instructional programs, and in particular the emphasis on cheerleading gymnastics, quickly spread.
UCA’s goal is to inspire leadership on and off the field. All of UCA’s material and programs are centrally focused on the traditional role of cheerleading. UCA believes that the primary purpose of a cheerleader is to support athletic programs and lead the crowd before and during games. Cheerleaders play an instrumental role in raising, leading and maintaining school spirit in and around their communities. In short, they are leaders in building general morale at their school!

Malachi Macias - BANKS
It was billed as a potential great game and that's exactly how it turned out in the 6-5 Rotary victory over the Banks in 13-15yo Babe Ruth action down at Hibbs-Hooten on Thursday evening. Going in, both had just 1 loss, to each other. After at least "9" pitchers took to the mound, a game, full of multiple, multiple hits for both teams, numerous stranded runners (Rotary stranded 3 at least twice!) and a controversial call here and there, the boys in RED, that's ROTARY RED, emerged the victor. Beautiful night for baseball, low temps (for this time of year), a slight breeze and some cloud cover early on. Hibbs-Hooten, home of Babe Ruth Baseball since 1955 lived up to that billing Thursday night. Congrats to both teams for a fun night! Game Action pics below! The pic above is of Banks catcher Malachi Macias making an awesome pop-up catch behind the plate and near the stands - sequential pics of this great catch are in the gallery! Nice Job Malachi!

Cal Ripken Baseball 2017
Baseball action picked back up at Worden Park Monday evening with activity on every field...9-10 and 11-12 Cal Ripken games on Fields #2 and #1 respectively, plus "Coach-Pitch" on Field #3 throughout the evening. In the 9-10 action, Bank of Commerce with a 20-0 shut out over Brownlee Heating & Air. Kudos to BofC's pitcher Tanner Kelly! On the other side of the sidewalk, a much closer battle between Wellington and Conway Springs' 11-12 yo's. Conway jumped out early on Wellington but the local boys battled back and with bases loaded and two outs, down 7-9 in the bottom of the 5th, Wellington popped out for the 3rd out - Conway Springs wins this nail-biter 9-7. Good ball play on both sides of the dash. Action continues tonight (Tuesday) @ both Worden (softball) and Hibbs-Hooten (Babe Ruth 13-15 yo's) so come out, over, up or down and enjoy the talents of the young.

Babe Ruth Baseball
Regular season action continued on Thursday for the 13-15 yo Babe Ruthers. It was the BANKS vs LIONS on the first day of JUNE 2017...there is just something about being at the baseball field on a nice summerish evening in Wellington...more should take advantage at both Hibbs-Hooten and Worden Park! The BANKS jumped out to an early 1st inning 5-0 lead but the LIONS came back with 4 runs of their own in the top of the 2nd but would never get closer. The BANKS' bats exploded and would prove to be too much for the LIONS in the end, final score BANKS 15 LIONS 7. After last weekend's KENNY ROADS Tournament, regular season for the 13-15 yo's began on Tuesday this week. The BANKS who lost to the ROTARY in the Kenny Roads Tournament redeemed themselves with a 10-2 win in Tuesday's nightcap. The early game Tuesday pitted the LIONS against the ROTARY as well, the ROTARY took care of business, winning 12-2. So after 1 week of regular season play, it's the BANKS @ 2-0, ROTARY @ 1-1 and LIONS @ 0-2. If you factor in the preseason tournament over Memorial Day weekend it's the BANKS @ 4-1, ROTARY @ 4-1 and the LIONS @ 1-4.
