Greetings fellow coaches! You and your team are invited to come on down to McPherson High School for our annual McPherson HolyCow Invitational. Our tournament will be a one-day event held on November 27th, 2018. Novice, JV, and Open Debater divisions. This will be an 8-3-5 with 5 minutes of prep time. Roadmaps will be to the preference of both teams in round with closed cross-x. We will be following KSHAA rules for the 2018-2019 season.


Sweeps will be determined by the top 4 teams with at least 1 in each division. We will be trophies for sweeps. The rounds will be delayed power matched from rounds 3 to 5. The entries will be $5 per team or whatever you charge for your entries.


Please send your entries to me via e-mail or sign up on Thank you!


Though we should have enough room for everyone. Space may be tight so I am accepting 5 entries total to start per school to start and then wait listing other entries. I will give preference to schools who have approved my large entries in the past.
