Mother Nature is playing havoc with this SPRINGS' outdoor sporting activities...on Friday, that trend continued when "EVERYTHING" scheduled was either postponed or cancelled! (We're running out of days for make-ups!) Varsity Golf and Tennis, both originally slated for Friday were moved to this coming Wednesday. The "C" Team Baseball game which had already been moved once, was postponed and no make-up date has been announced and bigger yet, the Track & Field Meet at Clearwater was postponed and the word is, most likely cancelled.
Congratulations to WHS Senior Jaycee Schettler! Her entry for this year's PROJECT PROM T-SHIRT was selected as the winning entry out of 6 entries total.
For her artistic efforts Jaycee on Wednesday rec'd a $50 check from Amy Norris, member representative of the PROJECT PROM COMMITTEE. Jaycee commented she had never entered a contest like this before - her efforts paid off!
It was CRUSADERS vs CRUSADERS Tuesday evening as Buhler hosted Wellington in "5 1/2 " games of basketball. Wellington's Lady Crusaders would win with relative ease and advance their season record to 11-4. Balanced scoring, stifling defense including "3" steals by Lauryn Snipes and awesome board work with Tayland French just missing a double-double on the evening...it was Wellington all the way in this one! In the other "4 1/2" games (C Girls Game was only 2 qtrs), the outcomes not as good.
Prom was an event that started at some colleges in the late 1800's, but things are a little different now.
In the new show on local cable channel 55, "Nate's Notes," host Nate Jones goes over the history of the big night that has become an American tradition. Watch the first installment of "Nate's Notes" in the video above.
The latest installment of “Show and Shel with Shelley Hansel” features a couple of Wellington Project Prom Committee members, Erin Struble and Maria Cornejo. Watch the entire episode above (and on local cable channel 55) where they cover the nearly 30-year history of Project Prom and the big change that is taking place in 2016.
Instead of having the after prom celebration at Wellington High School, the event is hitting the road going to All-Star Sports in Wichita.
