Rock Creek has announced that it will leave the Mid-East League after 30 years of competition. While we wish them the best, we are also concerned about what may happen to the Mid-East League as a result of dropping down to five schools.
Dancers Cecelia Emmert and Eliza Barton join the podcast to discuss their experiences in productions of The Nutcracker, along with their time as dancers.
The girls basketball team is led by head coach Trevor Keller who has coached basketball at Wabaunsee for the past two years. “The program has been to state the past three years and I think that we want to continue that tradition. When I took the job there was a tradition of success at Wabaunsee and I wanted to help continue that,” Keller said.
The Wabaunsee Wrestling team is starting off the year with two new coaches. Head coach Jamy Dunbar, previously a coach at Osage City, will be assisted by Tyler Douglass. Coach Dunbar is unsure of any changes that will be made with the program, as he is new to WHS.
With success on his mind already, head coach Christian Ulsaker prepared well for his third season at Wabaunsee. “I’ve already watched every game from last year, and I’ve keyed in on our returning starters just to see what their strengths and weaknesses are,” Ulsaker said.
Kara Hafenstine and Kaelyn Conrad join the podcast to discuss their recent signings with Ottawa and Johnson County softball.
Wabaunsee’s annual Fall play is only a couple of weeks away. Just like in years past, the drama class will put on a lovely performance for the community, however this year there will be some guest appearances as well. The newspaper class and several students from outside of the drama class will also make up the cast this year, yours truly included.
As the WHS drama class prepares for its Fall play next weekend, we look back 20 years to the 2001 production.
