(UPDATED) Wellington has "7" teams in the hunt this week and next for STATE TOURNAMENT TROPHIES and the opportunity to advance on to REGIONAL (for some) and then even perhaps WORLD SERIES action like our 16 yo Babe Ruth Softball girls did last summer! (Wellington's 15 YO's, the 8th Wellington team, have to win their District Tournament later this week to advance to State in Junction City). It's always fun to see who is involved and where - SUTV.COM prepared the following to assist you with just that:
Mother Nature left a half inch of rain behind overnight Sunday, causing postponement of the baseball games on slate at Sellers (both Hibbs-Hooten and 9th St. Diamond) on Monday vs Andale. Out west however (Worden Park), the scheduled varsity and jr. varsity softball games vs Andale would be played and the outcome would be similar for everyone all the way around, all squads went home 1-1 on the evening.
You know it's SPRING when you hear the bats a crackin' at both Hibbs-Hooten Field and Worden Park! You also know it's SPRING when gale force winds blow...30MPH gusts at Hibbs-Hooten, 500MPH gusts at Worden (estimate). :) The sun was shining though, perhaps a little brighter at Worden however, if outcomes affect that at all.
Worden Park will soon an even brighter fixture in the community.
The City of Wellington has received a $6,000 donation for 14 additional lights on the walking trail around the softball complex at Worden Park. The donor asked to remain anonymous.
The 14 new lights will be added alongside the existing 14 lights that were donated and installed at the park in 2010.
Total donated funds available for this project is just over $43,600, the lights were recently quoted at nearly $33,000. Remaining funds will be used to cover additional costs of installation.
