Talk about two for the price of one. It has been announced that the McPherson High School wrestling was scheduled for a league dual with Circle High School on Thursday at 6 p.m. Now the Bullpups added Class 6A team, Topeka-Washburn Rural High School, which is set for 7 p.m at the auxiliary gym immediately after its dual with Circle.
Thursday just got a little more interesting. In addition to hosting Circle, the Bullpups will also wrestle the #2 ranked 6A Washburn Rural in the Aux. The fun starts at 6pm – Circle, then 7pm – @TeamTopHat1 #OAM pic.twitter.com/R9P5bGckA3

Coincidently, Rural ranked No. 2 in Class 6A, planned on heading that way for the Tournament of Champions in Newton this coming weekend. Head Coach Doug Kretzer takes this as a big opportunity to evaluate before the TOC coming up.
“This is a big dual the day before a huge tournament.,” Kretzer said. “We are always looking for the competition that is going to provide insight into where we need to improve. All three days at the end of this week will provide that opportunity. We’re looking forward to this week as a whole. Girls, Boys, JV. It should be fun.”
