Wellington girls tennis team goes to Pratt Regional; wins Kingman tournament

Crusader head logoby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — While the world is waiting on the Kansas State High School Activities Association to hand out the volleyball sub-state assignments which will definitive name the Class 4A Div. I and Div. II schools in team sports, the state tennis regionals have already been determined.

Since tennis has just one 4A Classification, those regional assignments came out this week. Wellington will be in the Pratt Regional. Wellington will play Friday and Saturday, Oct. 10-11 with Augusta, Colby, Larned, Pratt, Circle, Ulysses, Wichita Trinity and Winfield. The top six singles and doubles players will advance to state.

Considering Wellington is just one of two schools in the regional in the Class 4A rankings (see latest rankings below), that’s a pretty good omen.

Youth group in FCA camp inside

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — For years, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes of Wellington load a bus and travel north to the Rock Springs 4-H Camp, south of Junction City, to participate in a weekend filled with sports activities intermixed with bible teaching and life lessens.

Last weekend, 30 high school and 15 middle school students from Wellington got into a van very early Saturday morning to make the trip.  Once there each camp participant was assigned a “huddle” for the weekend – in which a group will play basketball, volleyball, soccer, long base and a few others.

The team with the best record at the end of the weekend won the “towel”.  Huddles also had huddle time which include discussions from the bible and life lessons.  Everyone meets together for meals and for chapel time.  Chapel is a time for praise/worship songs and the main speaker.  The speaker for the weekend was a man named Jason Epperson.

The theme for the weekend was “All In” for Jesus.

The following are some of the weekend proses written by a few of those attending:

The Crusader beat Clearwater 25-19, 25-19, and Winfield 25-13, 25-13 on senior night. Wellington is now 14-7.

This may not be the last time Wellington will play in front of a home crowd. Wellington is currently up to host a sub-state. The Kansas State High School Activities Association has yet to post the sub-state locations or pairings, but the hope is Wellington will be at home.
