August 2017


Had the pleasure of spending some time Tuesday morning with the Crusader Marching Band and their director Mr. Ben Olson out at Wellington High School. They are having BAND CAMP this week and I caught up with them on Crusader Circle (or whatever the road around the CRUSADER HOME is called) as they practiced their marching in preparation for the new school year which is knocking loudly now at everyone's door!

Wellington Represents at 19th Annual Babe Ruth Classic!

The 19th annual Babe Ruth Classic was held Sunday in Council Grove. This annual event show-cases the best 15 yo Babe Ruth baseball players from around the State of Kansas.

They are divided into two teams, the RED TEAM which features western KS players and the BLUE TEAM which features eastern KS players. This year Wellington not only had “4” young men on the BLUE TEAM, the BLUE TEAM itself was managed by Kerwin Spencer who is a Babe Ruth Board Member.

Unseasonable Temps For Conditioning Tests @ WHS Saturday

It was CONDITIONING TEST time at WHS today for all of the SUMMER PSQ'rs headin' into official Fall football practice come Monday morning at  6:30AM. Most did a great job, some didn't even have to do it because they had perfect attendance all summer long - that pays off two ways - you get in shape because you are there all summer and because you were there, you don't have to prove you got in shape!! :) Life isn't always complicated!!
