The Crusaders were up 14-0 at halftime and soon thereafter, up just by 7. However, a fumble in the red zone by Winfield resulted in a Wellington TD with 2:30 left in the game to go up by 15. Game over. Penalties hurt the Vikings, 95 yards worth...Crusaders ended game with just 20 yds, the fewest this season.

Congratulations to Wellington HS Graduate and now Lady Husker Basketball player at Nebraska - Grace Mitchell, daughter of Jud Mitchell, owner of Sumner Communications here in Wellington, and Cathy Mitchell. Grace was recently named a BIG TEN DISTINGUISHED SCHOLAR, a prestigious award bestowed upon BIG TEN student-athletes who have recorded a minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.7 or higher for the previous academic year, in this case 2017-2018.


Larance & Carrie Lough probably had no idea, a dozen or so years ago, when they presented a small "roll-out" piano to their first-born, Mason, who was 3 at the time. It was of immediate interest to their son, and when, a couple of years later, a relative purchased a nicer keyboard for the boy, it became clear the young man possessed exceptional musical abilities. "At age 5, Mason could listen to a song, turn to his keyboard and play it," mother Carrie shared in a sit-down with the two and younger brother and musician Hunter recently.
