Weekend Update CRUSADER BASKETBALL & WRESTLING

The Crusader Basketball and Wrestling squads were in action this weekend. The former hosted Clearwater here at home, the latter competed at “2” different venues. The Lady Crusader wrestlers were in action at the Wichita North Redskins Invitational on Saturday, the Crusader wrestlers, were “1” county to their east @ the 52nd annual Augusta Invitational. Here are outcomes from all.

CRUSADER BASKETBALL

The Clearwater boys went home with “3” W’s Friday evening, defeating the WHS V, JV & C Teams to achieve that end. Certainly were not blowouts, and one, very close. The boys in red will rebound. A  young bunch overall, nice performances by several – as those individual performances transition into team performances, watch out. There is talent on the court. Many smiles to come.

*********************************

The visiting Clearwater Indians found success Friday evening at WHS, winning 4 of the 5 basketball games on slate. A mirror image from Tuesday’s action with the visiting Vikings from Winfield. The Crusaders on Tuesday won 4 of 5.

The Lady Crusaders did split, the Varsity falling to 4-3 on the season with a loss, the JV moving to 7-0 on the season, but not with ease. The JV Girls were down 6 at halftime and clawed their way to just a 2 pt deficit after 3. Calm and composed Natalie Henning, lit it up in the 4th, scoring 7 of her 10 total pts. on the evening, to catch and pull away from their counterparts from Clearwater. Awesome come from behind “W” ladies – and the only Wellington win on the evening. Shiney Hughes (a freshman), led all Wellington scorers on the evening with 17 in Varsity action and 9 in Jr. Varsity.
