  • McPherson High School cross-country coach Gentry Nixon called Saturday’s chilly Newton Invitational perfect cross-country weather, and the Bullpups responded in kind.
    The Pup girls’ varsity team finished ninth, while the boys were 12th. In the junior varsity races, both the boys’ and girls’ teams finished 10th.
    The highest individual finisher for any of the Bullpup teams was sophomore Christina Wankum, who took sixth in the varsity girls’ race with a time of 15 minutes, 49.90 seconds.
    Ryen Trost was the top boys’ varsity finisher with a time of 18:14.43 to finish 49th. Steven Huerta took 43rd in the boys’ JV race, clocking in at 19:59.91. Christal Regehr finished the girls’ JV race at 19:26.43 for 34th.
    “Out of our 27 runners,” Nixon said, “sixteen ran either a personal best or a season best. I was excited for them and very proud of them.”
    The Pups are back on the course Saturday, as they will take part in the El Dorado Invitational, held at Bluestem Point at El Dorado State Park.
