At least there will be no Conner Frankamp next week when McPherson High opens play Thursday in the McPherson Invitational against his alma mater, Wichita North.
The 7-0 Bullpups have drawn the 3-5 Redskins in the 8:15 p.m. game, as the bracket for the 50th annual event, sponsored by Midway Motors, was released today.
MHS is on the same side of the bracket as Buhler (4-3) and Lawrence Free State (5-4), who meet at 6:30 Thursday.
In other first-round games, Derby (6-3) takes on Blue Valley West (3-3) at 3 p.m., while Shawnee Mission East (6-2) tangles with Carroll (3-5) at 4:45.
The semifinal round is scheduled for Friday, with the same times employed. Saturday’s games start at 1:30 p.m., capped by the championship game at 7:30 p.m.
