Wellington has advanced in the 4A, Div. I State Tournament, defeating DeSoto 62-57 on Wednesday. The Lady-Crusaders will play in the next round on Friday at 3 p.m. in Salina against either Paola or Abilene.

Early game jitters were visible for both teams on Wednesday as each tried to make it just another basketball game. Throughout most of the first, the teams traded one and two point leads. But big baskets by Lauryn Snipes and Grace Mitchell helped give Wellington a 16-11 lead headed into the second.
