McPherson High twins Ryan and Peter Horton were named Sunday as Area Co-Male Athletes of the Year by The Hutchinson News.
The Hortons were the epitome of the three-sport athlete, which in this day and age of specialization is becoming more and more rare.
The Hortons sparked the Bullpups to a third-place state finish in soccer, both earning a multitude of postseason honors. They also were forces on the state-championship MHS boys basketball team, again receiving numerous awards. They capped their careers by winning the state championship in doubles during the tennis season after finishing third their junior year.
