Wellington boys open sub-state play tonight against Rose Hill; updated sub-state schedule

Wellington has had several personnel changes since this picture was taken in December. The team begins sub-state play tonight against Rose Hill.

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Class 4A schools are the last to jump into the sub-state post-season fray, but tonight and tomorrow they get their turns as well.

The Wellington boys will travel to Rose Hill to play the host in the first round of sub-state tonight at 7:30 p.m. The girls will play host to Winfield Friday at 6 p.m.

In other Sumner County news, Argonia girls will be battling No. 2 ranked Cunningham tonight at 6 p.m. followed by Caldwell against Attica at 7:30 p.m. in the Attica sub-state. The boys teams at Conway Springs, Belle Plaine, Caldwell, South Haven and Argonia will play Friday night.

The Rose Hill sub-state for both the boys and girls will be interesting. Both teams could end up in the Class 4A state tournament and both teams could be starting spring sports on Monday. The sub-states for both squads could arguably be a 50-50 proposition.

The boys sub-state is especially muddled. Wellington (7-13) is battling Rose Hill (5-11). Mulvane (7-13) is battling Winfield (2-18) in the first round game.
