The WMS 7/8 Knights and Lady Knights were in action Thursday evening, the BOYS hosting at WMS, the GIRLS took a "sweeping" trip east to Viking Land - check out Lady Knight results HERE. (They are on a roll!)
The 7th Grade "A" boys extended their season overall record to 5-2 with a very convincing win over their Winfield counterparts, 49-20! Leading scorer for the Wellington 7th graders was Jack Wright with 15, followed closely behind by teammates Banks Hinshaw w/ 12 and Jax Cornejo w/ 11. Mekhi Torres added 8 and Cope Henry 3. A talented group and fun to watch - look for big things from the 7th grade boys and girls in basketball over the coming seasons at WMS and WHS! Goin' to be fun!
The 7th Grade "B" boys pulled down another "W" as well, downing Winfield in a close one 28-25. These scrappy lads are 6-1 on the season and haven't lost a league game yet. Like the "A" team, there are some shooters and they all pitch in game after game. Keaton Hartman and Christian Snipes pumped in 9 each and cool and calm Nate Farmer sunk two "3's" like a walk in the park! Carson Nugen added 4 to help seal the deal for the 7B boys. Great jobs 7th grade!
A tougher go for the 8th graders, both Winfield squads (8A & 8B squads) are solid, some large players and some good shooters. Too much, this night anyway for the 8th grade boys in red. Final score on the 8A contest, Winfield 41 Wellington 18, 8B final Winfield 33 Wellington 16. The former fall to 2-5 overall, the latter 1-6. Individual scoring is pending.
Next action for the KNIGHTS will be on the road, Monday, Jan. 8th @ Mulvane, The LADY KNIGHTS will host the Wildcats, both venues have start times of 5PM!
