For the Wellington 7th grade team, 2014 had little go wrong

7th grade triumph

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — It is hard not to like the Wellington seventh grade football team — unless you are an opponent.

In 2014, the seventh Knights were 7-0. They had great skilled players, great line, great depth, great work ethic, and great attitudes. And they won every game except one by at least 20 points.

They are your 2014 Pioneer League Champions.

So what will the future look like? We have been here before, great Wellington Middle School teams which for whatever reason can’t achieve similar success in high school.

“I don’t think there are any guarantees,” said Wellington seventh grade head coach Mitch McComb, who is in his seventh year. “But I like the depth of this particular group. In other classes I coached, I may have had three or four standout players. This group has a lot more ‘good’ football players.”

Wellington can still get to the playoffs; but you may need a math PhD to figure how

Football playoff confusion

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Ok, after studying the various tie breaking scenarios, it appears that the Wellington football team can go to Ulysses this Friday and win and NOT make the playoffs…

Or it could lose to Ulysses and still go to the playoffs. It is a wacky scenario based on tie breaking points in District 7 that includes Wellington, Ulysses, Mulvane and Rose Hill.

Last Friday, when Mulvane went into victory formation late in the game against Wellington after securing an apparent 14-7 victory, Mulvane coach Dave Fennewald didn’t do his team any favors. It could come back to haunt the Wildcats because they failed to secure additional points.

Remember, Wellington’s Connor Phelps late 9 yard touchdown late against Rose Hill two weeks ago? That gave Wellington seven points to work with because the Crusaders won by 13 instead of 6.

Confused? We haven’t even started. Just remember this. District 7 will take a champion and a runner-up to battle District 8 teams in the first round of the Class 4A Division 1 playoffs. Despite Friday’s loss, Wellington still has a good chance of being one of those two teams. Here’s how:

Wellington Regent to feature Kansas City Royals game #6 on Tuesday

Kansas City Royals at Regent Theaterby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Well, the Kansas City Royals are down 3-2 in the World Series after winning Friday and losing Saturday and Sunday in San Francisco. Could Madison Bumgarner somehow miss the plane to Kansas City?

If you can’t see the World Series live in person, and want to watch the game uninterrupted away from your house, Wellington Regent Theater will be providing the game on the big screen for game #6 on Tuesday. The doors open at 7 p.m. And those players are going to be larger than what they are in reality! 

No go on the Crusader bus to Ulysses

Crusader head logoSumner Newscow report — If you are taking a trip to Ulysses for the Crusader football game, it won’t be by fan bus. Wellington resident Lori Phelps said there were not enough takers. There were 28 people who signed up for the 54 seat charter bus for the final regular season game between Wellington and Ulysses on Friday night.

Ulysses is a four hour and 40 minute trip or 253 miles one way. Wellington is still in the district hunt and can still make the playoffs with a win in Ulysses and Rose Hill victory over Mulvane.

“I think if we had won at Mulvane we might have had more interest, but maybe not,” Phelps said.

Corbin Turkey supper

Submitted to Sumner Newscow — There are only two annual events that really bring the little town of Corbin alive: The Turkey Supper and Summer Softball Tournament.

It is now that time of year for the United Methodist Women of Corbin to prepare food for over 500 people who will converge on the town on November 5, 2014 for the turkey supper. As the valets (yes, we put the men to work, too) park cars and seat the guests in order in the Church sanctuary, the food line starts moving close to 5 p.m. It is non-stop until after 7 p.m. as the church finally empties out.
