  • McPherson High track and field coach Jace Pavlovich made the call to hold back some of his varsity athletes Friday at the Wamego Invitational due to a few minor injuries.
    Even with a smaller roster, the Bullpups still managed to finish in the top five in both the boys’ and girls’ competitions, which also proved to be a prime opportunity to scout for the state meet at the end of the month.
    “It was nice to see some 4A teams from the eastern half of the state,” Pavlovich said of the competition.
    The Bullpup girls took second place behind seven gold medal performances.
    That includes a double gold showing from Morgan Howard, who had the top jump in the triple jump with a leap of 32 feet, 11 inches and also was first in the 110 meter hurdles with a time of 16.2 seconds.
    Other first place finishes came from Kamryn Collins in the 400 (1:03.86). She was also part of the first place 4x100 relay team with Howard, Rilynn Anderson and Laynie Moore, as the quartet finished in a time of 51.30 seconds.
    Ivanna Moyer was first in the shot put with a heave of 36 feet, 11 inches. Megan Pedersen claimed gold in the high jump with a height of 5-2, while Amy Suenram was top in the long jump with a distance of 17-2 1/2.
    On the boys’ side, MHS was fourth, highlighted by Chris Stoppel who broke a Wamego meet record in the 200 dash with a time of 22.27 seconds.
    Stoppel also was part of the first place 4x100 relay along with Dylan Shook, Collin Harvey and Taylor Kynaston. The quartet finished in a time of 44.6 seconds.
    The Bullpups turn their attention to the AVCTL meet Friday in El Dorado.
    “El Dorado, Winfield and Buhler are the teams to beat on the boys side,” Pavlovich said. “Riley Allen recently came out for Buhler and has given them a boost in the sprints.  Winfield is the returning AVCTL champs from last year, and they return almost their whole squad. If we perform the way we are capable of performing we should be in the hunt as well.”
