As far as McPherson High boys soccer coach Chris Adrian was concerned, the All-AVCTL Division III-IV first team could have been almost entirely made up of Bullpups.
After all, his team was 7-0 against the league and totally dominated every game.
So Adrian was visibly disappointed when the league honors were voted on as four Bullpups made the first team, but none made the second team. MHS did have seven honorable mention selections, some of those he thought should definitely have been higher in the voting.
“I expected a little more for a team that went 7-0, scoring 53 goals while only conceding 3,” Adrian said.
The Bullpups’ Patrick Munsey was named MVP and was joined on the first team by Andric McGill, Devin Cape and Darrius Armstrong.
Honorable mention selections were Tanner Rose, Hadley Hageman, Drew Schrader, Jackson Lloyd, Britton Haigh, Connor Williams and Austin Monroe.
Here is the AVCTL First Team:
• Forwards — Andric McGill, McPherson; Cooper Allen, Buhler; Manny Carrasco, Rose Hill; Rigan Stoll, Winfield.
• Midfielders — Patrick Munsey, McPherson; Kayden Quint, Buhler; Parker Webb, Rose Hill; Aryn Setzkorn, Winfield.
• Defense — Devin Cape, McPherson; Darrius Armstrong, McPherson; Jared Smart, Buhler; Rueben Bowling, Winfield.
• Goalie — Dalton Eberhardt, Augusta.
• Coach of the Year — Dustin Hildebrand, Buhler.
