It’s a gathering of volleyball heavyweights on Saturday when McPherson High is among the teams competing in the always high-powered Newton Invitational.
The Bullpups’ 13-1 record has drawn them only the No. 2 seed in the nine-school field. Undefeated Hays has been tabbed with the No. 1 honor.
Both teams are ranked in Class 4A Division I, the Bullpups at No. 2 and the Indians at No. 5.
MHS has Andale (ranked No. 8 in 4A D-I) in its pool along with Wichita Heights.
Hays’ pool also includes Andover Central and Salina South. Two ranked teams in Class 5A — No. 6 Goddard Eisenhower and No. 8 Newton — are in a pool that also includes Highland Park.
The tournament starts at 9 a.m.
