ROSE HILL — Five McPherson High wrestlers placed Saturday in the Rose Hill Invitational, highlighted by runner-up finishes by Scott Radke and Austin Eldredge.

Radke competed at 145 pounds and Eldredge, the No. 1 wrestler in Class 4A, competed at 138.

Landon Frantz, a second MHS entry at 145, was third. Also placing for the Bullpups were Rhett Edmonson at 106 (fourth) and Bailey Yarborough at 182 (fifth).

Despite being open at three weights, the Bullpups still finished in the Top 10 of a 23-team meet. The Bullpups were 10th, but only 10 points out of seventh.

Valley Center won the meet with 185 points, followed by Derby with 164. Bonner Springs (127), Hutchinson (123 1/2) and Andover Central (122 1/2) rounded out the Top 5.

MHS coach Doug Kretzer was pleased that nearly half of his entrants were able to place in a large meet.

MHS is back home Thursday to take on Winfield in the match to determine the AVCTL Division III title.
