COLBY — McPherson High's wrestling team recorded its highest finish ever in the Colby Invitational this weekend, taking sixth out of 18 teams.

The Bullpups were 4-3 on the day.

The wins came against Phillipsburg (52-27), Burlington (39-27), Hays (46-34) and Oberlin (40-38). MHS' win over Oberlin came when Ty Goss pinned Zeke Jimenez in the heavyweight match.

MHS' losses were to Colby (66-11), Liberal (54-23) and Valley Center (50-26).

"We wrestled very well as a team," MHS coach Doug Kretzer said. "We've got six wrestlers who are first-year varsity wrestlers and an open weight. To come out of a field of 18 teams to finish in the top six is a tremendous accomplishment. We got a lot of matches, this will be very helpful moving forward. It give us a gauge of where we are and what we need to work on."

MHS' Austin Eldredge continues to stamp himself as one of the best 106-pounders in the state as he went 7-0 on the day, with his closest match being a 12-1 decision.

Andrew Trowbridge, at 113 pounds, won the tourney's "Fastest Pin Award" when he beat Hays' Taden Flinn in 10 seconds. Trowbridge also had an outstanding day by going 6-1.

Kaleb Jost at 182 and Goss at heavyweight were 5-2, while Cole Kretzer at 120 and Luke Thompson at 145 were both 4-3.

The Bullpups will wrap up the pre-Christmas portion of the schedule Saturday in the Abilene Invitational.
