SALINA — It was a tremendous start to the season for the McPherson Middle School wrestling team on Saturday in the Salina South quad.

The Bullpups went 3-0, defeating Salina South (67-24), Clay Center (68-36) and Great Bend (49-48).

“The kids wrestled really well,” MMS coach Scott Davis said. “The theme of the day was to go hard all day and they did an outstanding job of doing just that. I was extremely pleased with the effort,  I told them it didn’t matter if they made a mistake as long as we’re going hard.”

Going 3-0 on the day for the varsity were Rhett Edmonson at 75, Landon Crews at 80, Seth Morgan at 95, Mya Kretzer at 105, Ben Hopkins at 120 and Alex Perkins at 141.

The Bullpups host an invitational on Dec. 2, with mat time set for 2 p.m.
