Instructor Dustin Dreher recruited the students to compete in the relays.

“I’m happy with how the kids performed,” Dreher said. “They played hard throughout the day. We were hoping we could come away with a first place after finishing so close the last couple of years. McPherson’s a good team. They’re solid all the way up the lineup. I thought our kids performed very well.”
