220 lb. MATT McCOMB SEALS THE DEAL!

Exciting wrestling action out at WHS Thursday evening - league dual action with Mulvane with the league title still up for grabs. Mulvane jumped out early on the Crusaders, winning 3 of the first 4 matches (all by pins) before the Crusaders would begin their rally to victory, secured by 220 lb Matt McComb who unexpectedly and heroically, pinned his opponent to the joyous outcry of fans and teammates - really great stuff! In the end it was Wellington 39 Mulvane 34. Wellington and Mulvane are now both at 3-1 in league, Rose Hill is 1-1 and has duals with Andale and Clearwater soon, those results will determine league results in the end. At worse though, the Crusaders have sealed up at least a CO-CHAMPIONSHIP for 2017. Here are Thursday's results:
106 - Montana Heacock (pin - loss) 0-6
113 - Tim Schmidt (13-9 dec - win) 3-6
120 - Malachi Macias (pin - loss) 3-12
126 - Daniel Schmidt (pin - loss) 3-18
132 - Blake Bales (open - win) 9-18
138 - Kyle Clem (pin - win) 15 - 18
145 - Kadin Heacock (pin - win) 21-18
152 - Kanden Young (pin - loss) 21-24
160 - Seth Tunnell (12-0 dec - loss) 21-28
170 - Dylan Ferguson (4-0 dec - win) 24-28
182 - Aaron Shoemann (7-2 dec - win) 27-28
195 - Ian Groom (pin - win) 33-28

WELLINGTON vs MULVANE DUAL PICS 011917


Crusader Wrestling
There was Double Dual wrestling action at Clearwater HS Thursday
 w/ host Clearwater, Andale and Mulvane. The Varsity Wellington Crusaders pulled out 2 league wins, downing Andale 72-10 and downing Clearwater 43-33. Andale is in a 2 day large invitational at Basehor-Linwood today and Saturday so they opted to send mainly JV wrestlers and "6" open weights to Clearwater thus the unusually lopsided outcome in the opener. Andale lost by a similar margin to Mulvane. In Wellington's 2nd dual Thursday, a close and competitive faceoff.In the end our Crusaders secured their 2nd win on the evening 43-33. Clearwater lead early on but the "mo" changed and the big red machine chalked up the 2 league victories in one night. Great Job Crusaders - Good Luck Saturday as they return to Clearwater for a 13 team invitational which will get underway at 9AM. Weather could be a concern however and Clearwater will make a decision today as to whether the Saturday tournament will be held or not.

Crusader Wrestling
The Wellington Crusader Wrestling Team hosted Pratt Thursday in dual action out at WHS.
 In the end it was Pratt 59 Wellington 24 and the visitors (who are ranked #2 in State 4A) would win 10 of the 14 matches wrestled and 8 of those 10 by pin. Sounds bad perhaps but actually the Crusaders gave up just a couple of "quick" pins, most of the other matches were battles to varying degrees that swung the wrong way nearer to the end than the beginning. Congrats to 126 lb. Daniel Schmidt, 138 lb. Kadin Heacock and 220 lb. Matt McComb - all "3" pinned their Pratt opponents. Pratt was open at 170 lbs. giving Isaac Hilt that victory. Next up - Wellington Invitational (JV and Varsity) this Saturday at WHS - action gets underway in both gyms at or around 9AM.
