  • McPherson High School senior Kyler Jost made a statement for the Bullpups in Tuesday’s Newton Invitational, as he won one race and placed in the top five in two others.
    Jost took first in the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 1 minute, 2.35 seconds, fourth in the 50 freestyle (24.58 seconds) and placed third on the 200 freestyle relay team alongside senior Ryen Trost, sophomore Spencer Steinert and freshman Eric Gaeddert (1:45.23).
    “[Jost] did a great job of leading the team,” MHS coach Bonnie Sue Fisher said. “We were a little short handed due to senior Zane Richter having to miss the meet due to illness.”
    Gaeddert also had a banner day, as he took second place in the 50 free with a time of 24.42 seconds. Fisher was pleased, overall, with the way her team swam, considering the limited time the Pups have had in the water.
    “We have only been in the water for 2 weeks, and several of those days we were off due to Thanksgiving,” Fisher said. “All of the returning boys broke at least one best time which is great for a first meet. Our two freshmen, Eric Gaeddert and Max Howe, showed a lot of potential and I am really looking forward to watching them improve throughout the season.”
    McPherson is next in the pool Saturday at Wichita.
