SUNDAY P.M. UPDATE
The Wellington 10 yo's dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's Sunday afternoon, defeating Winfield in the 10 yo Cal Ripken District Tournament 18-1. Winfield earlier defeated Conway Springs 12-2 to earn another shot at the boys in red, their salvo fell short, way short. In this Championship Final contest, Zane Lozano was named Wellington's MVP and Brody Weir received the WOW Award. During the 5 day tournament Wellington went 5-0, downing their opponents cumulatively 64-9! As we mentioned in the Saturday update, both Wellington and Winfield will advance to the State Tourney in Harper, us as the District 3 Champion and Winfield will represent District 6. Congrats to the Wellington Coaches and the team - awesome job - continued good fortune in Harper and hopefully beyond! Wellington has several teams still putting on their cleats this summer...in addition to the 10 yo's, the 9 yo's are heading to Garden City for State Tournament action, the 15 yo's are heading to Peabody for same. Here at home this week with games beginning Thursday at Hibbs-Hooten, our 16-18 yo's (2 teams of them!) are hosting the 2017 Sr. Babe Ruth State Tournament so plenty of "Wellington" baseball action remains! Good luck to all - watch for updates right here on the NEW wellington.cc!!

SATURDAY P.M. UPDATE
Congratulations to Wellington's Cal Ripken 10 yo's who secured their 4th straight victory today in District 3 Tournament action out at Worden, downing Conway Springs 10-0 in 5 innings. This places the 10 yo's in the Championship Final on Sunday beginning at 3PM and a spot at the State Tournament in Harper as the "top 2" teams at District will move on. Conway Springs and Winfield will square off at 1PM Sunday, in the loser's bracket, to see who will challenge Wellington for the District crown. That winner will have to beat Wellington twice to win the District 3 crown but again, both teams in that final matchup (Wellington and either Conway or Winfield) will advance to State. Neither Conway Springs or Winfield has scored on Wellington thus far in this tourney, the boys in red defeated Winfield earlier this week 11-0 and then beat Conway Springs today 10-0 in 5 innings.
Sunday's eventual champion will represent District 3 at State, the runner-up will represent District 6. So, congratulations to both the 9 yo's (who secured their State spot last night )and will be heading to Garden City soon for that action and now the 10 yo's who will be heading to the 10 yo State Tourney in Harper . The MVP (pictured above) for the 10 yo's Saturday was James Redford. The WOW Award went to Brody Weir, who was also named MVP in an earlier tournament game this week. Congratulations to both Wellington's teams and continued good luck as you head up the post-season tournament ladder in Cal Ripken Tournament action! GO WELLINGTON!
