Wellington loses to Clearwater 39-37 in the Roadrunner Tournament Classic Championship

Wellington second place in Chaparral

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington Crusader boys basketball team could not quite pull off a second straight Roadrunner Tournament Classic Championship Saturday evening.

In a teeth grinding kind of game, Wellington would lose to Clearwater 39-37 to finish second in the eight-team tournament.

Wellington is now 8-5 and has a week off before traveling to Buhler on Tuesday, Feb. 3.

Clearwater implemented a 2-3 zone throughout the game and Wellington could never really solve the puzzle. Trevor Nance, who normally has more than 20 points, was held to 10. It didn’t help that he had three fouls midway through the third quarter and spent much of the second half on the bench.
