by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington baseball team closed down the regular season with two huge wins against Goddard and McPherson. The Wellington girls softball team swept McPherson in its final appearance at Worden Park this season. The Oxford baseball team cruises through the first two rounds of the Walter Johnson League Tournament. And we even have some junior varsity track results…


Triangular kings

The Wellington baseball team has had plenty of peaks and valleys this season. But Monday few would argue was the peak performance of the year as the Crusaders pieced together a significant couple of victories against McPherson and Goddard.

Wellington would beat McPherson 6-5 in an afternoon game. The Crusaders then turned around and defeated Goddard 4-1 in the nightcap.  In both games, Wellington would rally to win.

In game one, after taking an initial 1-0 lead in the first, the Crusaders would knot the game at 2-all in the bottom of the fourth thanks in part to a sacrifice bunt by Chantz Daugherty.

Then in the fifth, Wellington would score four more runs to take a 6-5 lead. They would preserve the lead for the win.
