The town is sure to be packed for the two-day event on Feb. 21-22. Schools participating are Andale, Augusta, Clearwater, El Dorado, Holcomb, Hugoton, Mulvane, Pratt, Rose Hill, Circle, Ulysses, Wichita Trinity, and Winfield.This should also be one of the most competitive regionals in Class 4A. Andale, Winfield, Pratt, and Ulysses are all in the top 10 in Class 4A, and three top-rated wrestlers in their respective divisions will be on the Wellington mats (see latest Kansas Wrestling Coaches Association rankings here). Of the 84 wrestlers ranked, 26 will be in Wellington.As has been the case all season, Wellington has had problems filling out a roster. Wellington head coach Mitch McComb said four of the varsity starters have been injured. However, this season will be defined by the dynamic duo of Kanden Young at 195, who is 32-1, and Kenny Fehrman at 215 at 31-2. In the latest poll, Young is ranked No. 5 while Fehrman is No. 3 in 4A.Young lost his first match of the season at last weekend’s Rose Hill Invitational losing to Landon Frantz of McPherson 10-0 in the finals.Kenny Fehrman is 31-2 and in a very tough regional weight division next week.Fehrman defeated Cayden Winter of Andale by a 5-1 decision to win the Rose Hill Invitational. Winter, who is ranked No. 4 – one slot below Fehrman in the KWCA poll, is slated for the Wellington Regional. Those two could very well clash again in what is being one of the best rivalries in 4A wrestling. But they won’t be alone. Zach Phillips of Winfield is ranked No. 5 and Jace Garrison of Ulysses is ranked No. 6. The 220-pound weight division alone will be worth the admission at the regional next week.Meanwhile, Wellington will travel to Mulvane tonight to finish off the dual season and then to Remington for a varsity tournament on Saturday.Anna Cullens has high hopes for upcoming regional.2- Regional wrestling girlsThese are one of those times when you can legitimately say that 20 years from now people will be reminiscing about this year – when girls wrestling officially became a KSHSAA sport.So is the case this weekend when at least two Wellington girls will travel to McPherson for the first KSHSAA-sanctioned west regional.Here is what is going to happen. There are no classifications for this year, which means there will be 78 schools from Class 6A to 1A that could be sending girls to the tournament. This could create some of the biggest brackets you will ever see in a wrestling tournament anywhere. McComb said if a girl loses the first round that could result in them wrestling up to eight matches to get to the state tournament.KSHSAA officials have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of interest and participants in girls wrestling – perhaps underestimating how popular the sport already is. Classifications are sure to follow as soon as next year.Still, no one really knows what to expect this year – especially the number of girls wrestling for these post-season tournaments. For example, Wellington has two firm commitments but could have as many as four participating.Anna Cullens, at 109 pounds, could have a huge regional. She is 19-1 this season with 15 pins against other girls. She lost her first match last week at the Wichita South tournament to an Independence wrestler. Kaitlin Hain, at 130, is 21-2 with 20 pins.The other two girls are Mackenzie Heacock, who probably won’t wrestle because she is at 109 which is Cullens weight division and only one wrestler per school can enter the regional, and Kyleigh Gould, who has just started wrestling.Oxford’s Ty Carter defends Caldwell’s Dawson Bristor.3 – County basketballThe Wellington basketball teams did not play Tuesday and will return to action Friday at home against Rose Hill to start the second AV-CTL rotation. Remember it is homecoming with the Duke Coronation at halftime of the boys game.There was plenty of action elsewhere in Sumner County.Sumner County rivals Caldwell and Oxford boys had an entertaining game on Tuesday. Caldwell clearly was the better team, but Oxford gave the Bluejays a scare early trailing the Jays 19-18 at the end of the first quarter.Oxford head coach Kyle Green stated:Caldwell is a very athletic, quick, well coached ball club. They are going to make a solid post season run I believe. They do a lot of little things well. We did a good job of battling back after we got down 8-2, we kept it close for a while, but we are young and Caldwell’s quickness was just too much for us. I’m proud of my guys though, they kept battling for 32 minutes. We now return home friday night for Homecoming where we host Central Burden.Scoring for Caldwell were: Volavka 4, Stow 4, Brown 10, Noyes 12, Strnad 14, Ward 2, C Ward 6, Bristor 10. Scoring for Oxford were: Morris 9, Ruyle 2, Hills 15, Schulte 3, Carter 10, Norland 2, Rush 3.———In other important contests Wednesday:•South Haven girls kept their SCBL Championship aspirations alive with an easy 57-29 win over Udall. The Cards got 25 points from Brittney Byers.•Conway Springs lost to Wichita Independent 54-49, its second in three games. Madison Pauly led the Cardinals with 19 points and Kara Koester had 16.•Argonia and Central boys were playing for the right to stay out of the cellar in the SCBL. Central won 48-40 on its home court.•Belle Plaine boys continue to roll with a 66-53 victory over Douglass as Sumner County’s most successful basketball team. The Dragons are 13-3.4 — Basketball rankingsThe Kansas Basketball Coaches Association’s latest rankings came out on Tuesday. See rankings here.Belle Plaine has returned to the top 10, ranked No. 7 in 2A boys. Garden Plain, the team that the Dragons have to play through to get to state, is No. 5. Cedar Vale-Dexter is No. 10.Think it has been tough for the Wellington boys?

Swansea 1-0 Liverpool: Reds stars rated and slated

first_img SUB – Danny Ings – 6 – Looked sharp and was one of the few bright points of a terrible night at the Liberty Stadium. Will hope to build on this display. Emre Can – 5 – Captained the side on the night but failed to lead by example as he drifted through the game. Snatched at a volley in the closing stages when a better finish was expected. Loris Karius – 6 – Fortunately saw his failure to save at his near post count for nothing as the ball went out of play. Stood no chance with the goal but his distribution was questionable. 13 Virgil van Dijk – 6 – It was his feeble header which led to Swansea’s winning goal. Sent an effort narrowly wide from a corner but will be disappointed to mark his Liverpool Premier League debut with a defeat. 13 13 Andrew Robertson – 6 – Delivered a teasing cross which deserved to be finished by his onrushing teammates in the second half. Looked a threat as an attacking force in the second half. 13 13 13 13 13 Roberto Firmino – 5 – Somehow failed to level the scores in the dying seconds when it looked easier to score before hitting the woodwork. Full of effort but lacked the finish like many of his teammates. Joel Matip – 7 – One of the few Liverpool players who looked to create openings. The defender regularly brought the ball out of defence to great effect before losing his composure higher up the pitch. Sadio Mane – 4 – Another forward who disappointed for the Reds. Should have equalised before the interval and looked content to drift through the game without any real purpose to his play. 13 Joe Gomez – 5 – Needs to be taken out of the limelight. The youngster has struggled in recent weeks and endured another difficult night comprising of missed tackles, wayward passes and loose marking. 13 Georginio Wijnaldum – 4 – Is the Dutch midfielder Liverpool’s answer to Moussa Sissoko? Added nothing to the game in any aspect before being dragged off the pitch by Klopp. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 5 – Failed to relive his heroics against Manchester City in what was a disappointing display. Energetic as ever but looked short on ideas for the majority of the game. 13 Mohamed Salah – 5 – A rare off night for the usually brilliant Egyptian. The forward simply could not find his shooting range as he wasted chance after chance. 13 SUB – Adam Lallana – 5 – Given a 20 minute cameo but failed to add the creative touch the Reds were missing. Snatched at a chance of a rebound following Firmino’s incredible failure to score. 13 Liverpool failed to pull clear in the race for Champions League qualification after losing to bottom club Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.The Reds endured a miserable night in Wales as they succumbed to defeat thanks to Alfie Mawson’s first half header.The loss leaves Jurgen Klopp’s side in fourth place but they end the weekend two points clear of Tottenham in fifth when they had chance to create a five-point gap.But how did the Reds perform against the Swans?Click the right arrow, above, to see talkSPORT’s Liverpool player ratings…last_img read more
