On Saturday, the McPherson High School girls wrestling team and boys junior varsity hosted an invitational where the Bullpups earned first-place finishes in several weight classes. No team scores were recorded.

18 girls competed in the tournament, and four left as champions. Catalina Palacios (113), Mya Kretzer (126), Haley Schafer (138) and Morgan Jones (145) each came up on top in their weight class.

On the JV side, Jace Anderson (120), Ryder Peterson (182) and Lane Thompson (220) also received first-place finish in their weight class.

"I thought we wrestled well.  Its early in the season, I like how aggressive we were.  We had a lot of kids who were losing, fight back an find a way to win Saturday," Bullpups' head coach Doug Kretzer said.

Taryn Nordstrom represented Canton-Galva High School and won first place in the 152-pound class.

The Bullpups will now focus on a double-dual match at Smoky Valley High School, where they will take on the Vikings and Chapman High School.
