What looked like early on to be an ensuing battle, turned out to be something else as the game progressed between the 1-0 Wellington Crusaders and 1-0 Mulvane Wildcats in district play Friday evening at Sellers Park. Mulvane found paydirt first but Wellington answered, knotting the score after a 3 yd. TD reception from Ledbetter to Jimenez and a successful PAT by Karsten Gill. This would be Wellington's one and only score after a myriad of untimely penalties and big plays at the right time by the visiting team from Mulvane.
UPDATE: Andale defeated Rose Hill this evening (43-33) in dual action. The Rose Hill loss means the CRUSADERS are the AVCTL DIV IV LEAGUE CHAMPIONS!! AWESOME!!!
There was double dual wrestling action Thursday evening at Clearwater High School featuring host Clearwater, Wellington, Mulvane and Andale. The Crusaders would lead off vs Andale and win easily 72-10...Andale is in a 2 day large invitational at Basehor-Linwood on Friday and Saturday so they opted to send mainly JV wrestlers and "6" open weights to Clearwater thus the unusually lopsided outcome in the opener. They lost by a similar margin to Mulvane.
The "HOME" side of the scoreboards in both gyms at WHS Tuesday night were busy! The Mulvane Wildcats were in town and the teams in red got down to business. On the evening there were "5" games, on the evening there were "5" Crusader victories!
In the afternoon openers, it was the "C" Team Boys and JV Girls gettin' things started right for the evening.
"C" TEAM BOYS: Mulvane 39 Wellington 50
With just a week and half under their belts, the basketball squads at Wellington Middle School are shinin' and dinin'! Combined, all squads thus far 16-4! The 7/8 Girls are 8-2!! The 7/8 Boys are 8-2!! We got some basketball goin' on!
