Wellington was unable to get a win against a very good Wichita Collegiate team. Eleven different Spartans scored in the 21 point win in Wellington on Senior Night.
 
The Crusaders came out of the gates firing, Ian King gave Wellington an early lead with the first two field goals of the evening, Wellington was up 4-3 early. King would go on to lead all scorers in the game with 21 points. It was a very fast-paced first quarter, and WHS battled hard against one of the top 4A Div. II teams in the State.

The 15TH ANNUAL KINGMAN EAGLE CLASSIC BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT wrapped up on Saturday with the Wellington teams playing earlier in the day than probably most people thought originally they would. Losses on Day #2 (Friday) eliminated the chances for both the Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys to make any Championship Game appearances this go-round. The boys have won this tournament "3" times and the girls "4" times since it's beginnings shortly after the turn of the century. Both will have to wait another year to add to the column of successes.
