Chase Pfalzgraf and Mackenzie Heacock, qualified last weekend in Chanute for today's (Saturday) State 4A Cross Country Meet in Wamego! A big sendoff took place on Wednesday for Chase and Mackenzie (2 days early due to PT Conferences/No School) out at WHS. Unfortunate news was received today prior to the conclusion of the State Meet that Jr. Mackenzie Heacock had rolled her ankle Friday evening and would not be able to compete on Saturday. Not the outcome you want at a State event for sure.
The WHS Lady Crusader Tennis Squad (Jacelyn Buck, Kylie Aufdengarten, Rylee Rusk, Calli Hatfield and Sophomore Lady Golfer Payton Ginter rec'd a sendoff at WHS Thursday as the former head to Topeka and the latter to Huthinson, for 4A State action, weather permitting. Many students, staff and the Crusader Band fired the crowd up just before departure. The "5" were presented with some gifts and Senior Jacelyn Buck thanked the crowd for their support. Tennis is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Golf for Monday.
Congratulations to Freshman Blake Saffell and Senior Ty Wilson for their 1st place and 5th place respective finishes today at the Regional 4A Golf Tournament hosted by WHS at the Wellington Golf Club. Awesome job gentlemen! Both will advance on to the STATE 4A Tournament in Emporia on the 21st.
