Football looks to continue success after 1st victory

Charger football is off to a 1-1 start behind several standout performances. The team hopes to build on its success as it heads to Troy Friday night.

The team got its first victory Friday night, winning 20-14 over Uniontown. Junior Quarterback Cade Oliver threw for 119 yards and ran for eight yards and a touchdown. Senior running back Derek Wallin and junior running back Aiden Boeckman both scored rushing touchdowns. Senior Tyler Lohmeyer led the team in receiving yards with 50 yards and junior Brayden Meseke had an interception. 

Government classes propose changes

Jess Rutledge’s senior classes aren’t just studying government, they have been attempting to do some governing of their own.

For the last few years, Rutledge has given seniors the opportunity to propose and debate bills of their own in an effort to improve the school. Rutledge said “I wanted them to learn what the legislative process was like; all the arguments and compromises that are made.”

Rutledge reflects on football season

Charger football ended its season Thursday night with a 42-0 loss to Jackson Heights.

While the team struggled to a 1-8 record, coach Jess Rutledge saw a lot of progress for the football program.

How did the football program move forward this season?

“Our offseason work that was put in exceeded any previous season since I have been at Wabaunsee. Our numbers in the weight room, at team camp, and at our thud camps were all higher than last year. Our athletes' maxes also increased a phenomenal amount from the summer of 2018. That needs to continue to improve, but we are most definitely on the right track. We also had a lot of younger players step into varsity playing positions, and that is a great thing to have for the upcoming season.
