The WHS Student Body and the infamous Crusader Band gathered in the Commons area just before school was out on Thursday to give "6" young ladies a CRUSADER SENDOFF as they head for State 4A competition this weekend and on Monday.
It was AVCTL League Tournament time Tuesday for our pioneering Varsity Girls Golf Team, experiencing their first year in existence and doing quite well thank you!
Today at Hesston, all of our Lady Crusaders improved on their scores from previous tournaments. Payton Ginter (a freshman), shot a career best 88 to finish 6th for the Tournament and be named First Team All League!! Is that exciting or what? Congratulations Payton - outstanding!!
There were several WHS student-athletes on the road Thursday and many achieved some awesome results. The Varsity Girls Tennis Team was in a large invitational in Ark City and finished 5th as a team out of 16 teams! The Varsity Girls Golf Team was in Circle at their invitational. Freshman Peyton Ginter finished 5th, another of (4-5) Top 10 Finishes this season.
The WHS Girls Varsity Golf Team hosted their first ever Tournament on Monday out at Wellington Golf Club. Here are both the TEAM and INDIVIDUAL TOP 10 Finishers:
TEAM (9 holes)
1st Winfield - 196
2nd Buhler - 225
3rd Andover Central - 229

Some sports history this Fall at WHS - a GIRLS GOLF TEAM! With the popularity of golf for both boys and girls at the middle school level and the introduction of their golf program 3 years ago or so, the high school team was started this year with 5 members (4 freshmen and 1 sophomore) with more "Lady Knight Golfers" in the pipeline. Exciting stuff! GO BIG RED!
Meet your 2017 WHS Girls Golf Team!
