WICHITA— The McPherson High School boys swim team had another solid weekend as it took second in the Wichita Northwest Invitational on Saturday.

Rhys Vanderhoof had a big day as he took first in the 200 individual medley with the time of 2:15.07.  Logn Ediger was not too far off with the third-place finish at 2:27.19. Matt Powers secured a state-qualifying time in the 200 freestyle. 

Unsurprisingly, Will Powers and Justus Hampton also grabbed a pair of a first-place finish in their events. The 200 and 400 freestyle relay A team was also victorious. Head Coach Matt Cotton was also impressed by the 400  freestyle relay B team  (Tytus Reed, Logan Ediger, Riley Shelton, Alex Houston) beating out the Derby team and recorded a state consideration time. 

“The pups went down to Wichita NW this morning and managed to snag second out a crowded field even with a depleted roster,” Cotton said.
McPherson’s next meet will be at the Kansas State Natatorium next Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
