Wellington 9 yo's Fall to 1-1 @ State Tourney Friday

(State Cal Ripken 9 yo Baseball Tournament in Garden City)...Wellington's 9 yo's fell to 1-1 in tourney pool play Friday evening, final score Holcomb 16 Wellington 1. Earlier in the day in what must have been a slug fest, Wellington downed Council Grove 21-18. Congrats to Maverick Petersen in Friday's nightcap who was named MVP and Conner Nugen who was the WOW Award recipient. In the Council Grove contest, MVP honors went to Reid Walker and the WOW Award recipient was Cole Jesseph!

Head West Young Men, Head West...action begins today!

Wellington's 9 yo Cal Ripken All-Stars have a big trip ahead of them this week! After emerging as the runner-up here @ Worden a couple weeks ago in the 9U District Tournament, the Wellington boys secured a spot at the State Cal Ripken 9U Tournament in Garden City this coming weekend and will represent District 1. District 3 (the district Wellington is actually in) will be represented by the District 3 Tournament Champion Winfield. 

Wellington 12U Softball Team - 3rd Place Finish @ USSSA Nationals

Wellington's 12U softball squad, (The Rebels) coached by Brady Walker and assistant coaches Jared Brown and Justin Pond, found a lot of success this summer on the USSSA Tournament Trail. The team just returned from the CLASS C USSSA National Championship Tournament in Bixby, OK with 3rd place hardware in tow! Congrats to Coaches Walker, Brown, Pond and this fine group of young ladies.

15 yo's @ 3-0 advance / 10 yo's fall to 2-1 but still in the hunt!

Wellington's 15 yo's, coached by Jeff DeJarnett continue their winning ways at the Babe Ruth State Tournament being held in Peabody this weekend. Today (Monday) is single elimination bracket day and Wellington's 3-0 record in pool play since Friday has placed them in the bracket as the #1 Seed (out of their pool) vs Rose Hill #2 Seed (out of the other pool) and will play at 12:30pm today.

Tournament Ends For Wellington's 16-18 yo's (15 yo's & 10 yo's advance!)

The 2017 Sr. Babe Ruth Tournament at Hibbs-Hooten wraps up today with single elimination bracket play, beginning at 10AM. Unfortunately, both the Wellington Host Team and also Walnut Ark Valley Team (primarily Wellington boys) didn't make it out of pool play with enough wins to advance to this final day of action. Both squads came up short on Saturday to seal their fates. Our Host team ended up 1-2 in pool play action, WAV ended at 0-3.

Slow Start for Wellington Sr. Babe Ruth Teams
