Lady Crusaders / WRC Teams Practiced Together Saturday

After a 30 minute intrasquad practice, the Lady Crusaders had a couple dozen or so younger WRC basketball girls join them at their Saturday morning session at Wellington High School. The combined group conducted dribbling and shooting drills, fun for both groups, and the coaches. Check out a few pics below that were taken at the event. The basketball season at WHS gets underway in December! Exciting!

HS Boys Basketball Host WRC Youngsters

Younger Wellington boys’ basketball players (WRC) joined the Crusader Boys Basketball team Thursday, for some work on fundamentals and more…you can see from the pics, lots of smiles on lots of faces…looks like all the “kids” (HS & younger) had a great time. This year the boy’s program has a new head coach, Mr. Joe Newman, a WHS graduate from earlier this century and coached the last several years at Belle Plaine, where he and the Dragons found considerable success.

Fall Sports PEP/AWARDS Assembly @ WHS Friday!

An Awards/Pep Assembly was held Friday afternoon at WHS, achievements in Girls Tennis, Girls Golf, Cross Country, and Volleyball were duly noted. It's been a great FALL for the Crusaders and Lady Crusaders - across the board. The IRONDUKES were honored as well with Senior Chi Barton addressing and thanking many that are close to the program.

Youth Entrepreneurship Market Day @ WHS!

Mrs. Melissa Buchanan's "Youth Entrepreneurship Class" had their Market Day this week at WHS. After a lot of planning, the group went shopping on Monday and then on Wednesday, their pop-up businesses were setup and in action Wednesday during all "3" lunch periods. Profit reports are not in yet - suspect though there was more black than red on the post-day ledgers! The pics below are courtesy of WHS Yearbook Staff!
