UPDATE: The Andale Varsity Wrestlers defeated Rose Hill Thursday evening 43-33. The Andale victory handed the AVCTL DIV IV LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP to the CRUSADERS!
Matt McComb
220 lb. MATT McCOMB SEALS THE DEAL!
Exciting wrestling action out at WHS Thursday evening - league dual action with Mulvane with the league title still up for grabs. Mulvane jumped out early on the Crusaders, winning 3 of the first 4 matches (all by pins) before the Crusaders would begin their rally to victory, secured by 220 lb Matt McComb who unexpectedly and heroically, pinned his opponent to the joyous outcry of fans and teammates - really great stuff! In the end it was Wellington 39 Mulvane 34. Wellington and Mulvane are now both at 3-1 in league, Rose Hill is 1-1 and has duals with Andale and Clearwater soon, those results will determine league results in the end. At worse though, the Crusaders have sealed up at least a CO-CHAMPIONSHIP for 2017. Here are Thursday's results:
106 - Montana Heacock (pin - loss) 0-6
113 - Tim Schmidt (13-9 dec - win) 3-6
120 - Malachi Macias (pin - loss) 3-12

UNEXPECTED TENDERNESS
This poignant drama about a dysfunctional Jewish family in Massachusetts is structured as a memory play. Roddy Stern recalls what it was like growing up in a family dominated by his paranoid and pathologically jealous father, a truck driver who lurked outside his house instead of working to catch his wife with other men. A long-suffering and abused woman, Roddy's mother raised two children in this difficult environment. Roddy's complex father is portrayed as a loving man with a demon inside that he fights but cannot exorcize. He eventually loses all control and drives away the family he loves.

"A play of real power and dimension... It stays with the mind and heart." N.Y. Post.

UNEXPECTED TENDERNESS CAST:
Archie Stern / Roddy (the Elder) - Matthew Sinnett
Roddy Stern (the Younger) - Jacob Michaelis
Jacob Stern - John Mayo
Willie - David Matlock
Molly Stern - BayLee Pacchelli
Haddie Stern - Lizzy Santana
Sylvie Stern - Kayla Prickett

MARISA BLACK / ALL-STATE HONOR BAND SELECTEE!!
Marisa Black
On Saturday, Jan. 7th, Marisa Black and Alex Hardin auditioned for the All-State Honor Band that will rehearse and perform as a part of the Kansas Music Educators Association In-Service Workshop to be held Feb. 23rd to 25th in Wichita. Marisa was selected to be a part of this band, earning a 4th chair seating in the flute section out of the 12 others that were selected. Marisa competed against students from all over Kansas. To win a spot, and to place so high, in this Honor Band is a very difficult thing to do, and is a true honor. Alex didn't make the final cut but to audition for the All-State Honor Band is a remarkable achievement in and of itself. Congrats to Marisa and to Alex for their respective outcomes in band this year! Two more young folks at WHS that the entire community can be proud of!!

Quoting from the Kansas Music Educators Association website, "The KMEA All-State Bands perform each year at the annual In-Service Workshop at the Century II Convention Center in Wichita. Students are selected via a rigorous audition process that starts at the district level. Students who perform at the district level are then eligible to audition for selection to the All-State instrumental ensembles. Thus, the All-State student musicians are truly “the best of the best.”" Congrats again to these fine Crusaders!

WHS Jr Aaron Schoemann - just secs away from a PIN!
Aaron Schoemann
There was Double Dual wrestling action at Clearwater HS Thursday w/ host Clearwater, Andale and Mulvane. The Varsity Wellington Crusaders pulled out 2 league wins, downing Andale 72-10 and downing Clearwater 43-33. Andale is in a 2 day large invitational at Basehor-Linwood today and Saturday so they opted to send mainly JV wrestlers and "6" open weights to Clearwater thus the unusually lopsided outcome in the opener. Andale lost by a similar margin to Mulvane. In Wellington's 2nd dual Thursday, a close and competitive faceoff. In the end our Crusaders secured their 2nd win on the evening 43-33. Clearwater lead early on but the "mo" changed and the big red machine chalked up the 2 league victories in one night. Great Job Crusaders - Good Luck Saturday as they return to Clearwater for a 13 team invitational which will get underway at 9AM. Weather could be a concern however and Clearwater will make a decision today as to whether the Saturday tournament will be held or not.
