GODDARD – It was a big day for the McPherson high school wrestlers as not only did the boys and girls teams both bury both Goddard Eisenhower and Hutchinson on the mat, Bullpup head coach Doug Kretzer went past the 100 win mark for his career.
With the two wins, Kretzer is now 102-51 for his career as head coach of the Bullpups. Now in his 11th season leading the grapplers, Kretzer has led the Bullpup boys to a 7-3 mark for the 2021-22 season while the Lady Bullpups are 3-0.
Looking at the duals, the Bullpup boys put the clamps on Goddard Eisenhower by winning 59-21 before blasting Hutchinson 69-9.
Nine Bullpups won by falls in both matches while one earned a win by forfeit against Goddard Eisenhower and two victories came on forfeits with Hutchinson.
The Lady Bullpups did not have to put out as much effort as neither Goddard Eisenhower or Hutchinson fielded full teams which meant the McPherson girls won a majority of their matches by forfeit while putting the hammer on Goddard Eisenhower 66-6 before taking down Hutchinson 57-9.
Hunter Wilson was the lone Lady Bullpup to actually have to wrestle two matches for the day and she won both, gaining a win by a fall and the other on points, 8-2.
Not much rest ahead for the Bullpup boys and girls as they take to the road on Saturday with a trip to Burlington for the Burlington Invitational.
