NEWTON — It’s not often a tournament MVP is chosen from a fourth-place team, but that shows just how good McPherson High’s Megan Pedersen was in Saturday’s Newton Invitational.

Pedersen compiled some amazing numbers, including 56 kills, 73 assists and 37 digs as she displayed her versatility.

The Bullpups went 4-2 on the day to take fourth behind Newton, Hays and Goddard Eisenhower.
