McPherson High wrestling coach Doug Kretzer likes what he’s seen this summer from his team during various activities.

The Bullpups recently returned from the Nebraska Kearney Blue Team Camp. Kretzer especially liked the fact he had a healthy number of 24 wrestlers take part.

Kretzer said his team was divided into two groups. MHS was able to wrestle 18 duals and a whopping 215 matches and added that experience will prove to be invaluable.

Another highlight of the camp was that MHS won the “tug-of-war” tournament. 

In addition to this camp, Kretzer added several of his wrestlers are involved in the Salina Summer Wrestling League.

“I am very pleased with the level of commitment from our wrestling team this summer,” said Kretzer, who should have yet another strong team this season. “Kids are working hard and we will see the benefit this coming season.”
