MMS doubles team takes 2nd in tourney

MAIZE — McPherson Middle School’s girls tennis team went up against some of the best young teams in the state on Monday in the Maize South Invitational.

The highlight was the play of the No. 1 doubles team of Riggs Kuhn and Lauren Rogers, as they were 5-1 for second place. They lost a 6-4 verdict in the championship match to a team from Maize that they had defeated in pool play earlier.

There were 10 teams in the event.

“It was a long day of tennis with a lot of tough competition,” MMS coach Ricardo Sanchez said. “The team started off slowly, dropping most of our matches. Our No. 1 doubles team was the only entry to start off strong with wins. Our inexperience was evident in those losses as we were in most of the games, but just couldn't finish points. Our footwork was the main thing that hurt us and it is something that we will be working on in practice. Most of our players were able to start finding ways to win later on in the day and were able to get some good wins.”

The Bullpups are right back at it today at Newton.

MHS vollyeball on the radio today

96.7 KBBE-FM is ever the innovator in sports broadcasting.

In addition to being one of the few radio stations broadcasting soccer (maybe the only one), today McPherson Radio is adding volleyball to its repertoire.

McPherson High’s 5:00 match with Augusta and El Dorado will be carried live from the Roundhouse with “Voice of the Bullpups” Jim Joyner on the call.

So those unable to attend the triangular, tune in for both Bullpup matches, with the second match starting somewhere after 7 p.m. The Augusta-El Dorado match, which should start somewhere around 6:00, will not be carried.

Traffic Stop Tuesday Lamps or Flags on Projecting Loads

By KBBE News
September 18, 2018

Since last month, you may have noticed our Officers escorting large or wide loads through the City of McPherson. Our Traffic Stop Tuesday this week, focuses on when vehicles with wide loads require flagging and when a passenger vehicle can be operated on the highway with a large load.

For daytime hours, Standard Traffic Ordinance 156, regarding Flags on Projecting Loads or wide loads, states whenever the load upon any vehicle extends more than six inches beyond the sides or four feet or more beyond the rear of the bed or body of such vehicle. There shall be displayed at all times, red flags, not less than 12 inches square, marking the extremities of such load.

Additionally, a passenger type vehicle shall not be operated on any highway with any load carried thereon extending beyond the line of the fenders of the left side or driver side of such vehicle nor extending more than six inches beyond the line of the fenders on the right side or passenger side thereof.

For your safety and the safety of others, please be mindful of vehicles with wide or oversize loads you encounter on the streets of McPherson or any street, since these vehicles require more room to maneuver than a normal vehicle. 

DISCLAIMER: The vehicle in the photo we provided with this post is traveling through a red Traffic Light, which it can with a Police escort.
