McPherson High’s boys swimming team returns to the pool on Saturday when it competes at El Dorado.

The meet has a noon starting time.

Other teams on hand are Wichita Southeast, Trinity Academy, Wichita Independent, Central Christian, Coffeyville, Maize, Maize South, Rose Hill and Wichita Collegiate.

MHS had a strong first month, taking second place in all three meets it competed in.

“I’m not expecting a lot of best times at this meet as we have been working pretty hard in practice the last two weeks, but we are really hoping to get our first win of the season,” MHS coach Matt Morrow said. “We have swam against most of these teams previously in the season.  Maize will be our biggest challenge in the field to beat as we lost to them in their home invitational by about 80 points.  Andover Central beat us in Newton and we beat them in Maize by 8 points, so they will be right there.”
