The Crusaders got the 2018 part of their schedule off to a perfect start Tuesday out at WHS. The "C" Team Boys won their first game of the season is good fashion - congratulations to them! The "W's" continued throughout the evening, in both gymnasiums before relatively small crowds, perhaps due to the extreme cold conditions outside and the school still being on Holiday Break until Thursday.
It was AVCTL DIV IV league opener time Tuesday for our Crusaders and the Indians of Andale. The WHS varsity boys were 1-2 and varsity girls 2-1 going into Tuesday's action HERE at home in front of a small to medium sized week night crowd. It was a split of sorts between the JV squads and Varsity squads. Andale won the latter, Wellington the former. All of the games were competitive and for the most part not clearly decided until late in the games. (Our JV Girls however did dominate the action throughout).
VARSITY GIRLS vs ANDALE
The Crusaders and Lady Crusaders ran into several defensive and offensive buzz saws Thursday evening, playing host to Cheney HS who is the actual host (of the Cheney Invitational), which has played itself out at the participant's schools, 2 of the last 3 nights this week. The 3 day round robin tournament will conclude this Saturday at host Cheney and they will be hard to beat.
