As expected, Summer 2019 is moving right along, harvest is complete or near complete, and Driver’s Ed will wrap up soon as will many of the summer programs offered locally through the WRC and others. Some folks are taking vacations, the Kansas Wheat Festival rapidly approaches - just another great summer in progress, for the citizens of 67152.
When the (3-2) Altamont-Labette County Grizzlies jumped out to an early 12-0 lead over the (4-1) Wellington Crusaders Friday evening at Sellers Park, what seemed like impending doom for the home faithful, turned into a 27-20 lead at halftime by the Irondukes, and a display of tenacity and ultimatae DESIRE to win. Despite unfortunate and nearly game outcome-changing unsportsmanlike and other penalties, Wellington football, it's coaches and it's players, were at their best.
For at least the 2nd time in Wellington Football History, a former Quarterback has been named Head Coach. A couple decades ago, 1982 graduate Linn Hibbs returned home to lead the IRONDUKES, his QB in '03 will now take the helm in 2016 - Zane Aguilar! Aguilar has been as assistant coach with Wellington for nearly a decade. Aguilar will replace 4 year coach Tyler Ryan who recently resigned and will be moving to Holton with his wife Stephanie for teaching jobs there.
