Varsity Wrestlers SPLIT @ Home Double Dual Thursday

The WHS Varsity (and some JV) wrestlers hosted both Mulvane and Rose Hill Thursday evening out at WHS in double-dual action from the home of the Crusaders. The fans were in for an exciting night of wrestling. In the end, it was a split for the Crusaders, falling to Rose Hill 33-38 and then downing Mulvane, via tie-breaker criteria (36-36). Here are the individual outcomes vs the opener with Rose Hill:

106 - Wellington OPEN
113 - Matt Sanders - loss by pin
120 - Montana Heacock - loss by pin

Crusader Basketball vs Andale 121217

It was AVCTL DIV IV league opener time Tuesday for our Crusaders and the Indians of Andale. The WHS varsity boys were 1-2 and varsity girls 2-1 going into Tuesday's action HERE at home in front of a small to medium sized week night crowd. It was a split of sorts between the JV squads and Varsity squads. Andale won the latter, Wellington the former. All of the games were competitive and for the most part not clearly decided until late in the games. (Our JV Girls however did dominate the action throughout).

WWII Radio Christmas Show! (Video Added!)

The WHS Crusader Choir and the "Crusaders of the Stage" collaborated in the "two" night presentation of "A CRUSADER CAROL - WWII Radio Christmas Show" out at WHS Thursday and Friday. Awesome sound and lighting by Brad Ewing, the icing on the cake. 

The program consisted of a step back in time, when radio was big and the war even bigger. The show also showcased some incredibly talented teenagers in song and more. There are many names you could mention, all performed superbly. 

Pratt DUALS Victory Away from CRUSADERS

The WHS Varsity and JV Wrestlers headed west Thursday for dual action vs Pratt HS. In the end, the Crusaders won about as many matches but 2 open weights and most of their losses by pins, was the team score difference in the end. Big Varsity Invitational this weekend at WHS - that gets underway @ 9AM in the main gym!
