  • The McPherson High junior varsity tennis team dominated the gold medal count in Friday’s McPherson JV Invitational, as the Bullpups took first in three of the four brackets.
    Leading the charge was Daniel Holthus in No. 1 singles, as he went 4-0 on the day to take first. Holthus played through a pool bracket to reach the championship round, defeating Salina South’s Bi Nguyen 6-1 and Hutchinson’s Brian Suarez 6-3.
    In the championship match, Holthus squared off with Hesston’s David Geidel, with Holthus claiming the 6-5 (4) win for the gold.
    Daniel Fallis also faced a Swather in the finals of the No. 2 singles bracket, as he won 6-2 in the championship match and finished the day 4-0 for first place. Fallis was hardly challenged in the bracket, as he only dropped five games total.
    Also claiming first place was the No. 2 doubles duo of Price Kramer and Trey Hett. The No. 1 team of Patrick Munsey and Hadley Hageman went 3-1 and finished third on the day.
    Jerome Dishmon finished eighth at No. 2 singles. Dalyn Chapman and Thomas Smith were sixth at No. 1 doubles.
    The MHS White team took first with 33 team points. Hutchinson finished second with 26, followed by Salina Central (16), Salina South (15), Campus (12) and the Bullpup Red team (2).
    Friday’s meet was the second of the week for the Bullpups, as they finished third in the JV AVCTL Meet Thursday.
    Munsey and Hageman had the highest placing for MHS, as the duo took first with a 3-0 record at No. 1 doubles. Hett and Kramer went 2-1 at No. 2 doubles and took second. Holthus was third at No. 1 singles with a 2-1 record.
    Thomas Smith finished seventh at No. 2 singles.
    Wichita Collegiate just edged out Buhler in the team scores, winning 58-56. McPherson scored 51 team points, followed by Winfield (37), Wellington (27), Circle (25), El Dorado (24) and Augusta (3).
    The Pups have one last meet this week before they wrap up for the season. They travel to Buhler for an invitational this morning starting at 9 a.m.
