The Wellington Crusaders moved to 3-3 on the season Friday night at Sellers Park, falling short against now 6-0 Wichita Collegiate by the final score of 35-8. A late score by Junior running back Chris Kop (1 yd run) kept the goose egg out of business on the scoreboard for the Irondukes. Neither team chalked up excessive yardage. Despite the margin of victory, the Spartans generated only 311 yds of total offense. Unfortunately, a significant portion of that came on big pass plays or fumble recovery opportunities.
Homecoming 2015 rolls on tonight and through the weekend in Wellington.

It's HOMECOMING WEEK at Wellington High School - Monday was Day #1 of Spirit Week with all eyes on Friday's coronation of this school year's WHS DUCHESS - a tradition begun back in the 1940's. This year's candidates are Madison Adams, Ryleigh Buck, Baylee DeJarnett, Alexis Hinman and Dietra Sober. Good luck to all "5" of these young ladies - regardless of the winner, Wellington High School will be represented well. The other public schools in Wellington participate in Spirit Week as well with similar themed days and other events.
