A sneak peek at McPherson High School and McPherson Middle School fall athletics is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 26, at McPherson Stadium.

The Bullpup Fall Preview is a huge day that starts at 3 p.m. with the annual “Drive 4 Ur School” event, sponsored by Midway Motors. Fans may test drive a car, with no sales pressure, which will result in a donation to the MHS Athletic Department. The goal is to raise at least id="mce_marker"0,000 as the test driving will continue until the end of the night at 9 p.m.

Admission for the evening is a free-will donation of non-perishable food for the McPherson County Food Bank or donation to the MHS Athletic Department. Hamburgers, hot dogs and brats will be available along with refreshments, including popsicles and ice cream. Hot dogs are free for those who take part in the test drive.
