McPherson Middle School’s girls tennis team remained undefeated and virtually unscored on for the season on Thursday.

The Bullpups blanked Hutchinson 12-0 on a windy day at Wall Park.

Taylor Bruce, CeAnna Allen, Jacie Myers and Jensen Mierkiewicz were all 2-0 in singles. Both doubles teams also went 2-0, with Bruce pairing with Allen, while Myers teamed with Mierkiewicz.

“The girls all played great, covering the court well and getting to every ball,” MMS coach Ricardo Sanchez said. “The wind was the biggest obstacle today and the girls responded by adjusting very well to how the wind was blowing.”

MMS is now 4-0 and home on Monday to take on Salina South in what Sanchez believes will be one of its toughest matches.
