It was a pair of impressive basketball victories Saturday for the McPherson eighth-grade A-girls in the annual McPherson Jamboree at the Roundhouse.

The Bullpups swamped Emporia 39-12 behind 13 points by Lauren Hein and nine more by Jaycee Burghart. They followed that up with a 48-17 runaway against Chapman, with Kari Ellet scoring 11 points, and Hein and Beam adding nine apiece.

The B-team also captured a pair of victories. Emporia was no match in a 32-5 McPherson rout, as Meghan Smith was on fire with 16 points. The team needed overtime for a 26-21 decision against Chapman as Smith again led the way with eight points, one more than J’anae Spaich.

The A-team is now 4-1 and the B-team is 5-0. The Bullpups play Tuesday at Emporia.
