BUHLER — McPherson High’s ninth-grade volleyball team recovered from the sting of three losses on Thursday by unraveling five wins in six matches Saturday in the Buhler Invitational to take second place.

The only loss came in the second match against Andale (13-25, 25-23, 7-15).

“We got beat on Thursday by them as well and we worked hard in practice to adjust and learn from our mistakes, but preparation did not prove fruitful,” MHS coach Danica Fitzmorris said. “Fortunately, we did not let the loss get us down and we bounced back the rest of the day.”

The wins came against Hutchinson (25-20, 25-14), Hesston (25-20, 25-18), Buhler (25-18, 25-23), Liberal (25-15, 23-25, 15-7) and Haven (25-10, 25-12).

The Bullpups return home on Thursday for a quad against Mulvane, Wichita Collegiate and Rose Hill.
