EL DORADO — McPherson’s ninth-grade volleyball team tuned up for Saturday’s league meet by winning all three matches on Thursday in the El Dorado Quad.

The Bullpups defeated Wellington (25-13, 25-17), Andale (25-16, 25-10) and El Dorado (27-25, 25-6).

After a slow start, the team is now 15-12 on the season.

“The girls played well tonight with the exception of our service errors,” MHS coach Danica Fitzmorris said. “They talked well, passed the ball well and did a nice job hitting. That is really good considering we ran a different lineup. We had no out-of-rotation errors, which shows the girls are really learning the game of volleyball as well as getting better at their individual skills.” 

The league meet is Saturday in Maize, with Maize, Derby and Salina South in the Bullpups’ pool. The action starts at 9 a.m.
