BUHLER — Due to a computer error, McPherson’s ninth-grade volleyball results from last Thursday are just now available.

The Bullpups were 3-0 on the day with wins over El Dorado (25-17, 25-17), Augusta (23-25, 25-14, 25-12) and Buhler (25-15, 25-14).

“We played extremely well,” MHS coach Danica Fitzmorris said. “We had lots of opportunities to play all our players throughout the night. We took a loss in game two against Augusta and the girls stayed focused and worked hard to not to lose confidence. They worked on what they could do well on their side of the net and kept the ball in play, which equates to points. I was extremely impressed with their mental toughness and discipline.”

MHS goes to Winfield on Thursday, then competes in the league meet on Saturday at Derby.
