McPherson High’s volleyball team has learned of its pool opponents for Saturday’s Hutchinson Preseason Tournament.

There are 16 schools taking part, mostly from the AVCTL. 

MHS has been placed in Pool D, which includes Campus, Maize and Valley Center. MHS’ first match is at 8 a.m. against Campus. From then on the matches are determined by first available court. Maize will be the Bullpups’ second opponent, with Valley Center its final pool match.

After pool play, teams will be assigned matches depending on their pool results.

Here are the other pools:

• Pool A — Goddard Eisenhower, Liberal, Newton and Salina Central

• Pool B — Andover Central, Derby, Goddard and Salina South

• Pool C — Andover, Dodge City, Hutchinson and Maize South

McPherson High is coming off a 38-8 season and runner-up finish in the Class 4A Division I State Tournament. It must replace five key seniors, including All-Staters Megan Pedersen and Magan Alexander.
