Five state qualifiers named Big Cheese Athletes of the Week

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — This week instead of one individual we are giving the Big Cheese Athlete of the Week to the five state qualifiers for the Wellington girls tennis team. Abby Lowe, Rylee Rusk, Avery Rusk, Mekenna Adams and Kylie Aufdengarten all qualified for the state tournament in Pratt to be played this weekend.

It was a tremendously tough regional in which three of the top four tennis teams in the state were in the regional. Lowe, who pulled off the upset of the tournament over a No. 2 seed, would finish fourth in singles. The Rusk sisters, in doubles, finished fourth and Adams/Aufdengarten placed second. Wellington finished third, behind Wichita Collegiate and Andover Central.

For their efforts, they each get a FREE  large delicious pizza at Big Cheese Pizza at 324 N. Washington Ave.
