But the school has never had a team qualify for state. That will change next week when the Crusaders will be one of eight teams in the Class 4A Div. 1 state tournament in Salina next Friday.Wellington qualified after winning the sub-state championship in Winfield Saturday. The Crusaders defeated Coffeyville 25-19, 25-17 in the first round, and Independence 25-19, 27-25.The wins culminated a long and winding road for a group of girls who have worked pretty hard to get to this point over the years.Wellington is the Winfield sub-state volleyball champions.“This is the best day ever,” Abby Goodrum tweeted over social media just minutes after the game. (See more pictures here).After completing an odious second set in which Wellington had faced match point on three different occasions without securing the win, the Lady Dukes would get the point after leading 26-25. The girls would stand momentarily in silence as if not knowing how to react. Then they fell into a dog pile to celebrate.Wellington’s front line dominated both Coffeyville and Independence. “I really didn’t know what to do,” Abby would say later. “Then I remembered people are supposed to dog pile when they win something big.”There were lots of tears after the game as Wellington received a sub-state trophy. And Brianna Stephenson, Wellington head volleyball coach, had as many as anybody.“Wow. What can I say,” she said. “These girls have been through a lot to get here. But they just refused to lose today.”Wellington came into the tournament as the second seed with a 17-17 record. But the Kansas State High School Activities Association helped the Crusaders out by putting it in a sub-state featuring southeast Kansas teams, and avoiding the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail league teams that they have been battling all season.It was clear from the start, this appeared to be Wellington’s tournament to lose. Winfield, a team that Wellington dominated all season, nearly toppled top seed Independence losing 28-26 in the final third set. The Bulldogs had a 26-6 record, but had not played many matches in the Wichita area.Erin Goodrum sets up volleyball for Tayland French in game against Coffeyville. Still, despite winning every set of the day, there were moments Wellington just wasn’t getting it done. In the first set against Coffeyville, the Golden Tornadoes, a sub .500 team at 16-18, would lead briefly thanks mostly to Crusader mistakes. But every time things looked bleak, Wellington’s business like approach would overcome any kind of adversity coming its way. The Crusaders closed out the match with an 8-1 run.“We knew after last year to take nothing for granted,” Abby said about Wellington being surprised by Mulvane in the first round of 2014’s sub-state in Wellington. “Last year we choked. We knew we could not come in here with overconfidence.”The Crusaders would do little wrong in the second set and won 25-17.The sub-state championship match started out a grind against Independence who was eager to show it could play with the Wichita area big girls. The two teams were knotted at 8-all, before Wellington went on a 7-2 run. The Crusaders would go onto win 25-19.That set up the deciding match, and it was going to be the grinder of the day.The Lady Dukes built a 12-5 lead, but Indy rattled off five straight points to pull within two 14-12. The rest of the match was tit-for-tat. Eventually, the match was tied at 23-all.Wellington fans were going nuts during the games.Wellington would never fall behind, but faced match point on three different occasions and couldn’t get that golden point. Wellington missed two serves, something the Crusaders weren’t consistent with all day, and it kept Independence alive.“I think that’s attributed to nerves,” Stephenson said. “They are usually better than that. Not getting those serves at the right time, made things more interesting for sure.”But Wellington would finally get the final point on a Erin Goodrum set up to her sister for the win.Wellington clearly had the advantage on the front line. And Sierra Walker was on fire, especially in the final stages of the second game.“Yeah, I can say that is the best game I’ve ever played,” Walker said.The Crusaders are now off to state. They will play Friday in a pool play with three other teams. For a team that has been together for a long time, it’s a nice way to cap a wonderful career.Sub-state statistics: WHS vs Coffeyville 25-18, 25-17McKenna Oathout: 8 digs (2.5), 1.96 Serve receive, 2 assists, 2 acesErin Goodrum: 2 kills, 2 digs, 24 assists, 3 acesAbby Goodrum: 7 kills, 6 digs (1.83), 2.43 serve receive, 2 assists, 1 aceSiarah Walker: 6 kills, 2 digs (2.0), 1 aceMariah Moore: 3 killsTayland French: 7 kills, 2 digs (2.0), 1 blockShayland French: 4 kills, 4 digs (2.5), 1.67 serve receive, 1 block, 1 aceWHS vs Independence  25-19, 27-25McKenna Oathout: 13 digs (2.23), 1.89 serve receive, 1 assistErin Goodrum: 1 kill, 24 assists, 1 aceAbby Goodrum: 10 kills, 10 digs (2.1), 2.11 serve receiveSiarah Walker: 7 kills, 1 blockMariah Moore: 2 killsTayland French: 1 kill, 2 digs (2.5), 1 blockShayland French: 5 digs (1.4)Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
