BUHLER —  McPherson High’s Dawson VanGoethem won the discus and javelin to highlight the Bullpups’ performances on Tuesday in the Buhler JV Invitational Track and Field Meet.

Ben Nikkel also won the triple jump, while the 4 x 100 relay grabbed the gold.

The Bullpup girls did not have any firsts, but coming up with seconds were Zaya Goatley in the long jump and triple jump, Jordan Bailey in the 100 and Grace Pearson in the 800. The 4 x 100 relay also took second.

“This is the deepest group of JV kids that we have had in a long time,” MHS coach Jace Pavlovich said. “Most of the kids keep PR'ing every time out. Some of them have worked their way on the varsity squad with their performances.” 

No team scores were kept.
