McPherson High’s wrestling team will usher in the new year on Saturday with an impromptu five-team round-robin tournament in Hutchinson.

This meet replaces the Royal Valley Tournament that MHS was to have attended in Hoyt prior to Christmas, but was cancelled because of the weather. Hutchinson also had a meet that was cancelled, so it put this event together at the last minute to stay sharp.

The action begins at 10 a.m. in Hutch High’s North Gym.

The Bullpups definitely will be the small fish in the big pond as the other three teams are Salina South, Emporia and Topeka Seaman.

This should provide the youthful Bullpups with quality competition. MHS lost dual matches to Andale and Smoky Valley before Christmas, as well as finishing in the middle of the pack at a tournament in Colby.
