Wellington Wins 5 of 6 Over Winfield – Varsity Ladies Move Up in KBCA 4A Poll!

The Crusader squad has been on a roll the last two games, beating league opponent (Rose Hill) last Friday, there, by 1 point, I guess the 1 pt victories are as good of win as any, Tuesday  night, in OT, the 0-4, now 0-5 Varsity Winfield Vikings, lost by 1, giving Wellington a 3-4 record going in to break. Kudos to Head Coach Joe Newman last Friday, kudos to Asst, move up to Head Coach, Chad Whaley Tuesday night. Head Coach Newman was ill and could not attend. Chad stepped up to help and snagged the 2nd victory in a row! Here’s the scoring on them, and scoring on JV and C Teams. It’s Christmas almost, and for two games in a row, with 2 different coaches, the CRUSADERS gave both coaches the best present they could give – VICTORIES!! Merry Christmas!!

The Lady Crusaders, not only ranked 3rd overall in 4A basketball state-wide by the Kansas Basketball Coaches Association, they are also undefeated 7-0! They are composed and take challenges head on, they are fun to watch. The Lady Vikings came to town 3-1, and left with an “L”, actually not surprising to the home fans, but everyone knows anything can happen, last night, it was the expected, not the surprise in the end. The Lady Vikings road back to Winfield, 3-2, but certainly a team with potential. Here are all the GIRLS SCORES from TUESDAY! Congratulations again Wellington on the State 4A ranking and present status of 7-0 / You’ve worked hard and it shows!!
