Total: 17 (0) 4-10 38 8 16 Wellington Connor Phelps brings ball downcourt against Andale.by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The 3-pointers came raining down in Crusader gymnasium as the second-ranked Wellington girls beat Andale 65-38 Friday evening.The boys lost to Andale 58-45 in the nightcap.A huge homecoming crowd was on hand to view the festivities that eventually ended with Julian Cornejo crowned the Duke of Wellington.Fresh off a scare against Winfield Tuesday, the Wellington girls had little trouble disposing of their Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. IV rival as the second rotation of league play began. Wellington is now 6-0 in league and 16-0 overall.Wellington tied a school record by hitting 13 3-pointers as five girls contributed to the cause. Both Grace Mitchell and Avery Rusk knocked down four of them, while Lauryn Snipes and MeKenna Adams had two apiece. Even freshman Jacelyn Buck got in the act, nailing a three late in the fourth quarter on a running clock.Going into this contest, there was some uncertainty, even though Wellington had beaten this same team 59-43 at its place in December. Andale had earlier beat Winfield 46-32.The game started slowly, but Wellington went on a nice run at quarter’s end to lead 13-6. In the second quarter, for the first time since Augusta, Wellington found its offensive grooved the 3-pointers started to come. Fellow sophomores Rusk and Adams took turns hitting treys. By halftime, Wellington led 31-19 at the half.“They were throwing a lot of junk defenses on us, triangle-and-two, box-and-ones,” Adams said. “We did a good job tonight shaking that off.”Mitchell had only three points at halftime, victim of those defenses built to stifle her. But by the third quarter, when it was apparent Andale wasn’t stopping the other girls,  the Indians went into standard defensive sets. Mitchell then returned to form and would eventually score 18 of the game.But this night belonged to Rusk, who had 19.“Coach told us in practice that he thought Andale could beat us,” Rusk said. “It made us mad so we went out there to prove him wrong.”Wellington will host Mulvane Tuesday before traveling to Wichita Collegiate next Friday. 45 ————The Wellington boys have always played Andale tougher the second time around.When the Crusaders traveled to Andale in December, the Indians won 63-26. Andale would go on an 18-0 run in the first quarter to coast to victory.Andale got off to a similar start Friday night, taking a 16-4 lead into the second quarter. The difference this time Wellington would never let the Indians expand on its lead thereafter.Too bad there wasn’t a fifth quarter for this game. A.J. Snipes seemed to be just warming up. He scored 25 points for the game, but he had 2 in first, 4 in the second, 8 in the third and 11 in the fourth – including three 3-pointers.Wellington could never shave the lead into single digits, but it was clear it was outplaying Andale down the stretch – outscoring the Indians 17-16 in the fourth.The Crusaders are back at .500 at 8-8 and hosts Mulvane Tuesday.
