Wellington lost to Andale in game one 5-2, but came back to win the second in game two 6-5.The Crusaders are now 8-2 in the season. Andale is also 8-2. The Indians lost to Clearwater earlier in the year while Wellington lost to Mulvane. The Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Div. IV is truly a five-team race in girls softball with Circle also playing well. Collegiate does not have a team.In game one, Wellington would open up a two-run lead in the bottom of the third when Madi Adams singled and came home on a Avery Rusk left field double. But Andale had two singles and a double in the top of the fourth to tie the game at 2-all.Then in the fourth, the Indians would get three more runs across home plate to open up a 5-2 lead. Wellington could not recover thereafter.Madi Lewellen had her first lost from the pitching circle this season, giving up eight hits, walking four and striking out two. B. Bugner won the game for Andale, holding the Lady Dukes to five hits. Neither team committed an error in game one.Game 1: Andale 5 Wellington 2AHS  0 0 0 3 2 0 0     5 8 0WHS 0 0 2 0 0 0 0     2 5 0WP B BugnerLP Lewellen 7I 8H 5R 4ER 2K 4BBRusk 1/3 1R 1DBLB DeJarnett 1/3 2RBIR Buck 0/3McCorkle 0/3E Goodrum 1/3J Buck 0/3Zimmerman 0/3Lewellen 1/2A Goodrum 0/1Adams 1/2 1R———In game two, Wellington opened a 5-1 lead after three innings but would give up four runs in the next three. Going into the seventh, this game was tied at 5-all.Andale had a runner at third with one out in the top of the seventh, but two nice in field defensive plays by the Dukes ended the scoring threat. That put Wellington in position to win. After an Avery Rusk walk, a Bailey DeJarnett fielder’s choice in which Rusk managed to get to second with controversy, both girls stole base bringing R. Buck to bat with runners on second and third and no outs.All Buck had to do is make contact with the ball and she did so with a grounder, bringing Rusk home.B. DeJarnett had a heck of a game for the Crusaders. She opened game two in the bottom of the first with a home run over the left field fence. She would single in the third that would eventually get her home. She ended up with a .750 on-base percentage for the contest.Adams had a 2RBI double bringing in Erin Goodrum and Jacelyn Buck in the bottom of the second to give Wellington a 3-0 lead after two.Andale scored a run in the top of the third, but Wellington responded with two runs in the bottom half of the inning thanks in part to a R. Buck RBI single.The Indians would score two runs in the fourth and sixth inning, but were leaving a lot of girls on base. Andale left 11 runners on base for the game, including four innings where a girl was left on third base.For the game, both teams had eight hits and two errors.Brooke McCorkle was the winning pitcher in game two giving up eight hits, walking seven and striking out two.Wellington hosts Buhler Monday in its last home double-header of the season. There will be four road regular season double headers, before the regional will be hosted by Wellington.Game 2: Wellington 6 Andale 5AHS  0 0 1 2 0 2 0     5 8 2WHS 1 2 2 0 0 0 1     6 8 2WP McCorkle 7I 8H 5R 4ER 2K 7BB 1HBPLP B BugnerRusk 1/3 2R 1BBB DeJarnett 2/3 1R 1RBI 1HR 1SACR Buck 2/4 1R 2RBI 2SBMcCorkle 0/3E Goodrum 1/2 1R 1BBJ Buck 1/3 1RA Goodrum 0/3Lewellen 0/3 1ROEAdams 1/3 2RBI 1DBL———Tennis team to Wichita The Wellington boys tennis team traveled to Wichita for the Collegiate Invitational. It was a tough day. In No. 1 singles: Brock Edwards took sixth place (losing to Farris/Goddard Ike 8-5, beating Williams/Andover Central 8-3, and losing to Pheifer Maize 8-3)In No. 2 singles: Will Long took fourth place (beating Stoner Hesston 8-2, losing to Dunn/Derby 8-2, and losing to Fernandez/Collegiate 8-3). In No. 1 doubles: Jaden Adams and Reece Langford took eighth place (losing to Cuillo and Hane/Kapaun Mt. Carmel 8-3, losing to Wall & Dunn/Derby 8-3, losing to Barber & Morales/Hesston 8-4). In No. 2 doubles: James Hinman and Jared Oathout took eighth place (losing to Cole & Rollins/Maize 8-4, losing to Decker and Boles/Hesston 8-7, losing to Knorp and Richardson/Kapaun Mt. Carmel 8-3). “This was the first time these doubles combos have played together,” said Allen Keller, Wellington head tennis coach. “But I think we’re going to stick with it and try to develop some chemistry between partners.” Keller said even though the team had a tough go, both 1 and 2 doubles teams were competitive and lost some close matches that could have gone the Crusaders’ way.  “Brock and Will both played improved tennis and are going to get better and have more success as the season progresses,” Keller said. “Everyone came away bruised and bloody… but with our heads held high!”———Golfers in Andover Invite The Wellington golfers finished ninth out of 12 teams at the Andover Invitational at Terradyne Country Club. Wellington had a cumulative 354. Graysen DeJarnett was the top golfer with an 82. He missed medaling by two strokes. Other Crusader scores contributing to team points included: Johan Luna 90, Ty Wilson 91, and Joe Friesen 91. Other Wellington individual scores included: Skyler Crittendent 92 and Carson LeGrand 97. Wellington won’t have a competitive golf tournament until April 22 at Cherry Oaks in Cheney. Follow us on Twitter.last_img
