MULVANE — It was a perfect day for McPherson High’s ninth-grade volleyball team on Thursday.

MHS routed Wichita Collegiate (25-12, 25-12) and Mulvane (25-11, 25-9) before being pushed by Circle (21-25, 25-17, 15-7).

“The girls played well all night long,” MHS coach Danica Fitzmorris said. “They did not have any trouble against Wichita Collegiate or Mulvane. Tonight was the best serving we had all season. The exciting match came last against Circle. We had to fight back after first-set loss 21-25.  This group is starting to learn that intensity and noise equals a win. They got loud and did not stop. They are also learning how to win even with the deficit, another great lesson to learn. I'm proud of their efforts, They get better each game.”
