Charger football to kick off season against Mission Valley

Wabaunsee football is kicking off its season tonight with high expectations.  Seniors Cade Oliver, Brayden Meseke, Caden Yonke, and Aiden Boeckman return a lot of experience to this squad, and plan to propel the team forward. “We are the leaders of the team; most of us have played for four years and know what we’ve got to do to be successful,” Meseke said. “It’s on us to hold the team and ourselves accountable.” 

Rutledge proud of WHS football program’s progress after 4-6 finish

After a season ending 52-6 loss against Centralia, Charger football finished the season with a record of 4-6. 

“A losing season is not something we are happy with, but I am proud of the accomplishments and the direction the program is headed in. We won more games this season than the last three seasons combined and won the first playoff game in 37 years, so those are definite positives,” said head football coach Jess Rutledge. 

“Now, we need to build upon that and take the next step which is to have a winning season and continue playoff success.”

Until last week, that was Wabaunsee’s only playoff win.

The Chargers traveled to Pleasanton Thursday and won 62-18.
