HUTCHINSON — McPherson High’s ninth-grade boys basketball team pulled away from Derby 61-50 Monday night to claim the championship of the Hutchinson Invitational.

The Bullpups, now 15-3, received 18 points from Jack Reifschneider, while Brock Malm chipped in with 14.

“We knew going into the game that we were going against a team that was much more athletic than we were,” MHS coach Dustan Kanitz said. “Our teamwork on both ends of the floor was a fun thing to watch tonight.”

The Bullpups wrap up the season tonight at Rose Hill.

MHS (61) — Reifschneider 18, Kirchner 6, Leaf 5, Malm 14, Hoover 5, Gerbrandt 9, Spaich 4.
