WINFIELD — The trip home from Winfield didn’t seem nearly as long as the trip down for the McPherson ninth-grade volleyball team on Thursday.

The Bullpups certainly were excited after sweeping a quad.

They defeated Andale (25-17, 25-20), Winfield (25-13, 25-16) and El Dorado (25-20, 25-10).

The sweep allowed the Bullpups to reach the 25-win plateau as they are now 25-7 heading into Saturday’s tournament in Derby, which wraps up the season.

“We played really well tonight,” MHS coach Danica Fitzmorris said. “Our serving was fantastic, we only missed 11 on the entire night. We push for less than 3 percent and averaged under 2 tonight. We had 29 aces. Our work will come this Saturday when we play in Derby in a ninth-grade tournament with predominantly 5A teams. Our goal is to keep the ball in play, do what we can on our side to not make errors (serves in, hits in the court, and passing to target). If we can do all of those things the wins will pile up.”
