Bulldogs netters picked to rule the KCAC

January 18, 2020

McPherson College’s tennis teams have been voted on by the coaches to sweep the KCAC championships this season.

The Mac men received 6 first-place votes to 3 for Southwestern in the recent poll and totaled 70 points to 67 for the Moundbuilders.

Other totals were Ottawa (52), Friends (46), Tabor (44), Kansas Wesleyan (34), Bethel (33), Bethany (25), Sterling (23) and Oklahoma Wesleyan (11).

The Bulldogs finished 8-1 in the KCAC last year to trail Southwestern, but then won the postseason tournament to qualify for nationals.

The Mac women were the unanimous pick to win the championship as they received all 10 first-place votes and totaled 72 points.

Southwestern (63) was second, followed by Ottawa (57).

Other totals were Sterling (47), Kansas Wesleyan (44), Friends (41), Bethel (29), Tabor (25), Bethany (18) and Oklahoma Wesleyan (9).

The Bulldogs were second in the KCAC to Southwestern during the regular season last year, but won the postseason tournament to make nationals. They accomplished that despite having only five players and having to forfeit 2 points before going into most matches at No. 6 singles and No. 3 doubles. Coach Rafa Bulnes, however, has recruited well and nine members currently are listed to play this season.

Hesston splits with Halstead

By Steve Sell
January 18, 2020

HESSTON – The Hesston boys just keep on rolling.

The Swathers remained undefeated on the season Friday with a 53-24 swamping of rival Halstead as they pulled away with a huge second half.

Hesston, 9-0, led 21-10 at the half as it scored only 5 second-quarter points after taking a 16-4 lead.

The Swathers finished the game strong, scoring 22 points in the fourth quarter.

Ten Hesston players marked in the scoring column, with Cason Richardson burying 4 3-pointers on his way to 23 points.

Hesston is the top seed in next week’s Hillsboro Trojan Classic and plays Clay Center at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Tabor College.

Halstead girls 48, Hesston 37 – It was a case of too much Karenna Gerber for the Swathers to overcome.

The Dragons’ All-State center was unstoppable, pouring in 27 points as Hesston simply couldn’t slow her down, especially at the foul line where she was 12 of 15.

Hesston was behind from the get-go, managing just 4 first-quarter points and played catch-up the rest of the way.

Elise Kaiser paced Hesston with 14 points and Anna Humphreys was next with 8.

Hesston is the No. 5 seed at Hillsboro and also plays Clay Center at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Tabor College.

All other area teams were postponed.

Rural History for SALE.  Many moons ago this property was a working farm operated by McPherson College… nowadays it's a nearly 6 acre private homestead on the outskirts of town.  The big red barn with concrete floors and a hoedown hay loft has plenty of room for both livestock and a workshop.  Various outbuildings include a metal building, lean-to, old granary… come see the history.  When the chores are done, come in and enjoy the modern comforts of this stately Craftsman home with its grand foyer, inlaid hardwood floors, original pocket and parlor doors, and period lighting.  The kitchen is power packed with abundant cabinetry, plenty of working surface and a walk-in pantry.  The newer addition of the attached oversized 2 car garage brought the laundry to the main floor, more storage and built-in desk; now creating a “flex” room that can be a bedroom, office, or library. The second floor offers another living area, 2 bedrooms, a hall bath, and private owners’ suite. Up on the 3rd floor, (favorite among teenagers) is another bedroom, ¾ bath, and a bird’s eye view of McPherson proper!  Don’t miss the unfinished basement complete with egress window (for yet 1 more bedroom), rec room, mechanical & storage rooms, and roughed in bathroom (tub/shower unit ready to install).  Modern comforts include radiant floor heat, central heat, central air, Manabloc plumbing, newer water well and a new roof on the house (before closing).  Call Kristi Fowler today for your appointment now!
