Weather-wise, on the way to Clearwater Tuesday you felt like you were on your way to a track meet or baseball game! Short-sleeves were all you needed for the trip over - only slightly cooler at games' end later in the evening.

The regular season is about to wrap up, Tuesday's action being the 19th contests for both of our varsity squads and both squads were able to put up "W's", the girls with relative ease, the boys finally pulled away in OT. Net-wise on the evening, Wellington teams won 3, Clearwater teams won 3. Two of Wellington's losses were by just 1 point.
