GODDARD — McPherson High’s volleyball team took fourth place Saturday in the Goddard Eisenhower Invitational, with all its matches against Class 5A and 6A schools.

“The girls had an awesome day,” MHS coach Cara Hollingsworth said. “We played very well in pool and battled hard with Bishop Carroll to move up in bracket. A tough loss, however I am proud of the girls and their effort throughout the day.”

MHS was 2-3 on the day. The wins were against Kapaun (25-10, 25-22) and Maize (25-17, 25-27, 15-9).

MHS lost to Goddard in pool play (22-25, 19-25) and then in bracket play it lost to Carroll (25-23, 23-25, 13-15) and Wichita Northwest (15-25, 18-25).

The Bullpups are home Tuesday for a triangular with Augusta and Rose Hill.
