By Jen Charlesworth
April 24, 2014

Yesterday, you may have seen blue bins sitting next to the brown trash bins along city streets. McPherson Area Solid Waste Utility will begin curbside recycling for the City of McPherson the week of May 19. The blue recycling carts will be delivered in the next few weeks. Recycling pickup will be every other week on the regular trash pick-up day for McPherson residents. When your blue cart shows up at your house, be sure to read the literature that includes what can go in your recycling bin.

Swedes clean up on KCAC tennis awards

By Bethany College Sports Information
April 24, 2014

WICHITA — KCAC men’s tennis champion Bethany College dominated the postseason honors announced today.

Bethany’s Vic Bateman was named KCAC Coach of the Year. The Swedes also received the Player of the Year award (Maneul Raga) and the Newcomer of the Year award (Edgardo Tapia). Raga was 17-2 in singles competition and 19-2 in doubles. Tapia was 14-4 in singles competition and 19-2 in doubles.

Bethany's Mensford Owusu earned KCAC All-Conference first team with a singles record of 18-3 and a doubles record of 21-1. Joining Owusu on the first team are Raga and Tapia.

Bethany’s Michiel Van Den Bogaert made the second team. He had a 13-4 singles record and went 8-7 in doubles.

"The guys have played well so far with a very new team this year,” Bateman said. “All four that made the All-KCAC teams have taken turns being our best player on different days. We legitimately could have had one or two more on the squad in my mind.”

The Swedes won the KCAC with a perfect league record of 7-0. Bethany also is currently 17-2 overall, with the two losses coming against nationally ranked NCAA Division II opponents. Bateman has guided the men's tennis team to 11 straight conference championships. Bethany will travel to Wichita Friday for the KCAC Tournament.

Buhler's Jordan joins CCC for softball

By Central Christian College Sports Information
April 24, 2014

Krystal Jordan, a senior catcher from Buhler High School, has signed a softball letter of intent with Central Christian College. 

Jordan has lettered two years for Crusader head coach Aaron Yoder. She will be in McPherson on Monday when the Crusaders take on McPherson High.

“Krystal is a local product that is primarily a catcher, but can do a lot of other things,” CCC head coach Chad Kerr said. “She has a great arm and her bat has a lot of pop, giving her the chance to be a really good collegiate hitter and player. We are really looking forward to starting to working with her this fall when all the players report to campus.”

She is the daughter of Tim and Susan Jordan of Hutchinson. She will graduate this May with a cumulative GPA of 3.2. She is planning on working toward a degree in Early Childhood Education.
