by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Wichita Collegiate, which is hosting Wellington this Friday in high school football, is a hard team to figure out. Two weeks ago the Spartans looked like world beaters against Buhler. But last week the Spartans basically laid an egg against Mulvane in a 35-7 loss.
Here’s the problem. Collegiate is 2-2 and has won every other week. Unfortunately, this is the week Collegiate is supposed to win.
Wellington has had little luck with Collegiate since the private school was allowed into the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League six years ago in either football or boys basketball. The Crusaders currently have a cumulative 0-6 record. It may be a safe bet that it could be 0-7 after Friday.
But there are two things going for Wellington. Those who watched the Crusaders last week saw a much improved performance. Also, the last time Wellington was in Collegiate, it nearly pulled off a win in 2015, 38-34.
Granted these are small hopes, but the difference between this week and last week is the Crusaders had no hope against Andale. This week they do.
