Create: 02/14/2018 - 05:02

The WHS Crusaders hosted basketball action Tuesday evening vs the Rockets of Rose Hill out at WHS. The two Varsity games were nail-biters and were not decided until late in each contest. 

The Varsity Boys pulled away the last minute for a 7 pt victory over the Rockets, 59-52. Ian King scored 31 pts, a career high. A.J. Snipes remains courtside from a concussion but may be back in action on Friday @ Mulvane. 

The Varsity Girls were edged out with just seconds remaining and came up short 55-58. Taylor Meyer lead in scoring with 18. The Lady Crusaders led much of the way. Down 3 with 5.4 secs to go, Wellington couldn't control the ball on the inbounds, a jump ball resulted with just over a second to go, possession arrow Rose Hill - game over.

Congrats to the "C" Team Boys who also won, 51-46!!
