Five Cueball thoughts

Commentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Five Cueball thoughts for April 19, 2015…

1. Baseball reunion

1995 Wellington High School baseball team and Class 4A State Champions.

1995 Wellington High School baseball team and Class 4A State Champions.

Former Wellington High School head baseball coach Mike Wilmoth is organizing a 20-year reunion for the 1995 WHS varsity baseball players who won the Class 4A State Championship in Manhattan. The ceremony will be held May 7 at Hibbs-Hooten Field in between the Wellington-Clearwater doubleheader.

It should be a hoot. I was the sports editor at the Wellington Daily News and the memory of that tournament makes me smile. Not only was it the first state championship team I ever covered as a reporter, but it was also the first time I used a cell phone.

It had been raining all week, and the Class 4A state baseball tournament had been delayed a couple of times. It started on a Friday and was supposed to end on a Saturday. But the tournament was delayed way into next week. 

Newscow precipitation report: 2 inches overnight

Newscow precipation reportWellington received 2 inches of rain overnight for April 18-19. Yeah! That puts us at 3.1 inches of rain in the past week.
