The CoSIDA All-District Academic basketball teams have been announced and McPherson College had two players earn mention.

Aaron Bachura was named to the men’s first team. He has a 3.85 grade point average in business administration. He was the only KCAC player to make the team, which includes players from eight states.

Cami Richardson made it for the women’s first team as she sports a perfect 4.0 GPA in business. Two other KCAC players, Jordyn Miller of Southwestern and Riley Schmieder, made the first team as well. Bethel’s Kylee Schunn made the second team.

The Academic All-District teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. The CoSIDA Academic All-America program separately recognizes honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and College Division. The College Division includes all NAIA, Canadian, two-year schools and other affiliations.

MHS-Augusta cancelled; Bullpups home Friday

By Steve Sell
February 22, 2018

It is hoped by Friday that the paralyzing weather will have moved out so that McPherson High’s basketball teams can finish the regular season.

Icy conditions have impacted this week’s schedule with no games having been played. The Bullpups were to have played at Augusta tonight, but the games have been cancelled and will not be made up. MHS thus will play only a 19-game regular-season schedule.

The Bullpups host Circle on Friday for Senior Night. Both MHS teams are 8-0 in AVCTL Division III, 17-1 overall and riding 15-game winning streaks. The Bullpups and T-Birds were supposed to have played on Tuesday, but the first round of ice came through that day.

Tip time is 6 p.m. for the girls, with the boys to follow. Those unable to make it out to the action can catch the call on 96.7 KBBE with Voice of the Bullpups Jim Joyner.

The MHS boys are 58-0 in AVCTL Division III since they dropped from Division II, while the girls are 57-1.

Tonight’s McPherson High basketball games at Augusta have been cancelled and they won’t be made up at any later date since Augusta already has a makeup game scheduled for Saturday and since both teams are hosting sub-state games next week.

The Bullpups will be at home against Circle on Friday night for Senior Night, which is a make-up game from Tuesday’s postponement.
