McPherson High School hosted its annual McPherson Invitational for girls and junior varsity wrestling teams on Saturday.

With girls wrestling now an official sport in the eyes of KSHSAA, the Bullpups went on to make a statement in their home invitational. Four wrestlers for McPherson finished the day with first-place finishes. About 16 out of 18 girls were placed in the top three. Natalie Hedlund ( 101 B),  Amethyst Hale (123 B), Holli Giddings ( 155) and  Brittani Burgess (170) each were victorious in their weight class and took home gold after the tournament.

On the  JV side, a total of eight wrestlers received gold medals in the Roundhouse during the tournament. The winners include  Colton Rausch (106), Brock Burgess (113), Nate Rogers (160) Curtis Landrum (182), Gavin Jones (182 B) Ryder Peterson (195), Lane Thompson (220), and Tristan Castill0 (285).

Next up for the McPherson wrestlers, they will host a double dual on Thursday at 5 p.m. Then it’s off to Colby High School the next day for a two-day dual tournament beginning on Friday at 2 p.m.
