EL DORADO — McPherson’s ninth-grade volleyball team is firing on all cylinders.

Coming off a tournament victory over the weekend, the Bullpups tacked on three more wins Thursday night in the El Dorado quad.

MHS defeated Buhler (25-18, 25-21), Augusta (25-18, 25-14) and El Dorado (25-6, 18-25, 15-4).

The sweep improved the Bullpups to 17-5 on the year.

“The girls played really well tonight, our serving was spot on,” MHS coach Danica Fitzmorris said. “We had 26 aces on the evening and seven strings of five or more serves in a row. Our passing was great until the second set against El Dorado, when their student section roared louder than we did. We came back strong in set three to sweep the night.”

The Bullpups are home on Thursday.
