Grace Mitchell, a 6'2" basketball transfer to WHS this year from Derby High School has committed to play college basketball next year with DIV I University of Nebraska! 

Grace picked the HUSKERS over 12 other Div 1 offers. Grace averaged 17.6 pts a game last season at Derby and was the AVCTL DIV 1 MVP! 

She will join Wellington's DIV 4 MVP Lauryn Snipes and a myriad of other very talented basketball players this coming season here at Wellington High School...it's going to be a remarkable basketball year for the girls and boys that wear CRUSADER RED!! 

WHS Head Girls Basketball Coach Eric Adams had this to say regarding Grace and the upcoming season, "Well deserved. One of the highest compliments a coach can give a player is gym rat. She is constantly in the gym getting game speed shots up. As a team, we are not shying away from the expectations of this season. When you return the entire starting five, plus our sixth man from last season, there is going to be high expectations. The girls are embracing what is in front of them and are working hard to get ready." 

We will all be ready Coach, we will all be ready - good luck!! Grace is the daughter of Jud Mitchell, owner of SUTV here in Wellington and Cathy Mitchell of Derby.
