State Tennis Brock & Cramer
After playing superbly Friday in the opening rounds of the State 4A Boys Tennis Tournament in Prairie Village, WHS Senior Brock Edwards will be bringing some HARDWARE home! Brock went 3-1 on Friday to secure that outcome - he perhaps picked up a bit of good KARMA as well from Cramer Hass, WHS 1983 State Tennis Champion who was there to offer his Crusaderly support to Brock!! (above pic) Brock's last victory on Friday was a come from behind, tie-break, fighting cramps and fatigue victory for the Crusader! On Saturday Brock lost his first match to Independence, won his 2nd match 9-2 and last match 9-3 to finish 9th in the State 4A Boys Tennis Tournament - in a very strong field of contenders. Congratulations Brock - that is awesome and Wellington is proud of you for sure!! Great Job Crusader - bringing home some hardware - fantastic!!!

2017 OUTSTANDING ATHLETES @ WHS
CHRIS KOP & JAYCEE SCHETTLER

Outstanding WHS Athletes 2017
The annual WHS SPORTS BANQUET with new enhancements was held Wednesday evening out at the HOME OF THE CRUSADERS and a large contingent of Crusader Fans were on hand for the event. The program was an opportunity for the coaches to honor their student-athletes with words, with letters, with pins and with wisdom. Many highlights during the affair, from Crusader Club President Colby Zeka presenting a $5,000.00 check to WHS Athletic Director Luke Smith, to Senior Michael Billington being named the 2017 "Coach Giff" True Crusader Award recipient! The climax of course was the announcement of this school year's outstanding male and female athletes - those honors going to Seniors Chris Kop (Football and Track) and Jaycee Schettler (Cross Country, Powerlifting and Track). Thank you CRUSADER CLUB, congratulations to MICHAEL BILLINGTON and double congratulations to CHRIS KOP & JAYCEE SCHETTLER. Congratulations to a fine group of student-athletes and coaches as well. Guest Speaker Kelly Adams, the 1990 Outstanding WHS Male Athlete summed it up best for us all to hear - "set goals, get involved, live your life in such a way to limit regrets later on"...great words, great school, great futures. A pot-luck dinner was held afterwards in the Commons...proud to be a Crusader this day and every day!

Coach James Ginter reported a "Great day at Hesston today. Team finished 3rd with a 346, just 3 strokes out of second. We also had two All League Golfers today. Ty Wilson shot a tournament PR (​personal record) today, firing a 74 and finishing 2nd to Peyton Austin of Rose Hill. What a great round for Ty today. He has really made great strides this season. Blake Bales finished 10th with an 88 today to also gain All League honors. Very proud of Blake as well. Probably the most improved golfer from last season to this one.

David Klein and David Carroll - WHS Class of 1964!
Class of 64 Restoration
Many of us remember the CRUSADER HEAD that hung outside on the south gym wall at the old high school (which is now the middle school) because it hung there since the early 60's. The new Pod construction in the late 60's/early 70's partially blocked the view and then the remodel of the building with the new entrance (around 2005) pretty much obstructed the view of the Crusader Head except from the back parking lot. During the latest construction period (new aux. gym, etc.), the METAL MASCOT was taken down. To cut to the chase - WHS Class of 1964 classmates David Carroll and David Klein refurbished the CRUSADER HEAD as you can see in the above picture and now the new MASCOT will hang inside at WHS in the Commons area for everyone to enjoy once again. Awesome job David and David - true Crusaders for Life for sure - thanks gentlemen!! (courtesy photo)

No reports from JV action but Varsity Girls, like the Varsity Boys, took care of business and snagged 2 wins over visiting McPherson. The opener was tight but with a bottom of the 7th Lady Crusader run, the win was secured at 4-3. In the nightcap, Wellington jumped out early but McPherson battled back to a tie in the 4th and then the guns unleashed for Wellington, scoring 8 runs in the 4th, 5th and 6th for the easy 11-3 victory!

Tennis Team Water Color
Coach Alan Keller Update: Best day in 5 years for Wellington Boys Tennis!!!! And almost an exceptional day! Brock Edwards had Luke Bass, Independence (one of the best players in the State) on the ropes but came up a little short and lost a very close match in a Tiebreaker. Luke was seeded #1 out of 16 players, Brock #4. They met in the semi-final match and stood toe to toe slugging it out. Brock never flinched, Luke just hit some spectacular shots at the right time which made the difference. Very, very proud of Brock's effort! Even though he lost, he gained the favor of many coaches who watched and they now know... Brock Edwards from Wellington High School is a serious threat to anyone on the court across from him. Then there was Will Long who got the 7th seed out of the same group of 16. Will worked his magic again... first confusing, confounding, then beating some very good players. He finished the day at #5 and along the way has compiled a team best 16 and 3 record going into the League Tournament next Monday. Our two doubles teams continue to struggle, but Carson LeGrand/John Long managed to give the team a very much needed 10 points with a 7th place finish, after getting a #10 seed. Juniors Jaden Adams/Jared Oathout managed to win 2 matches out of 4 played and are gaining valuable experience and getting better. This was their first time playing together and they were seeded 14th out of 16. This was a tough tournament with some very good schools/players.. and as a team, we finished 3rd!!! Only Independence and Derby finished better. But yesterday, we were better than Campus, Pittsburg, Newton, Maize South and Winfield. Great Day for Wellington!!
