It was scrimmage time Thursday evening, both at Wellington Middle School and also the football field. At the former, the WHS Lady Crusaders held their annual GATORADE SCRIMMAGE...why at WMS? Bleacher problems (which will be fixed by mid-Sept or sooner) prevent usage of the bleachers at this point at WHS so the Lady Crusaders took advantage of the "NEW" old gym at WMS which has honestly, been transformed into a wonderful facility. Great lighting, great look and A.C.!! Just so you'll know, the lighting is L.E.D. lighting so it is relatively inexpensive compared to more traditional forms of illumination. At the football field, it was football mania with Wellington football players ranging in age from 1st grade to 12th grade showing their stuff in front of a good sized crowd. The burgers were frying and the lines were long as the millionth annual Crusader Club Hamburger Scrimmage progressed throughout the evening. It was a beautiful evening to boot! Here are pics from both venues - if you are familiar with former pics taken inside at WMS in the main gym, please notice the HUGE difference "lighting" makes in digital photography! Thank you Wellington - you have a great facility!
Wellington High School is excited to announce the arrival of their NEW MASCOT!! Many of you have seen pics and there are more below you can look at as well! WHS Student Council is having a contest to "NAME THE MASCOT" and the winner will receive some pretty cool prizes - a mascot T-Shirt, a league sports pass for all regular season Crusader sporting events and an autographed 24x36 poster of the WINNER and the MASCOT, compliments of Red Rave Posters!!
CLICK HERE TO ENTER "NAME THE MASCOT" CONTEST!
DEADLINE TO ENTER IS MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th!!
YOUR 2016 WHS IRONDUKES!
The 2016 WHS IRONDUKES posed for pics at the football field following practice on Wednesday. With storms just looming to the south, pics came off without a hitch, Mother Nature cooperated! The football field looks awesome, the IRONDUKES are fired up as are the coaches - home opener is just 1 week away vs Clearwater - GO BIG RED!
The 2016 WHS Volleyball Team took time out Wednesday afternoon for some TEAM & INDIVIDUAL PICS! Action for the Lady Crusaders begins this Saturday in Winfield, an annual "pre-season" tournament featuring several teams from around the area. A great warm-up event for all the teams involved.
GOOD LUCK LADIES!!
FIRST DAY BACK - WMS STUDENTS READY TO BEGIN!

It was "FIRST DAY BACK" for everyone except the upperclassmen at WHS - they won't start back up until tomorrow - freshmen and new students at WHS were in orientation today, giving the "older" Crusaders "1" extra day of SUMMER! Big day planned for the Freshmen and the new Crusader Mascot made his first public appearance...it's going to be a great year district-wide!!
