In the night cap in Augusta, Wellington would improve to 7-7 on the season with a four point win. Three Crusaders were in double-digit figures. A.J. Snipes had a monster game with 26 points.

It was a fast and furious first, the two teams appeared to be evenly matched. Neither one could get much of an edge on the other. The quarter ended with a Cade Phelps three from the corner as time expired to give WHS a 21-20 lead.

Four Lady-Crusaders would end up with double-digit points as they would improve to 14-0 on the season with a 17-point road win against Augusta on Feb. 5.

However it didn't look like the point margin would be that vast in the first half.

Shayland French wasted no time getting the Lady-Crusaders on the board with an opening possession jumper. Augusta would soon answer and the teams kept it close for much of the quarter.

It's a tough go, but the Lady Crusaders are 11-0!

In the early 1970's, the Chaparral Roadrunner Classic Boys Basketball Tournament was born (I was a student at Wellington High School) and this, the 45th annual, the tournament continues on strong! Not an easy tournament to win - Wellington has won it twice, in 1978 and then again just two years ago in 2014.

It was a great night Thursday night for folks and athletes that like to wear RED! Here at home on the mats and 40 minutes to the west on the court - when the final buzzers went off, nary a Crusader fan was around without a big smile!

There's no place like HOME so let's start there and end was DOUBLE-DUAL wrestling time at WHS Thursday with the welcome mat out for two groups of dressed in black (ANDALE) and one dressed in blue (CLEARWATER)...when it was all over, the color RED was on top!
