MAIZE — McPherson High’s JV volleyball team started fast Saturday in the AVCTL Postseason Tournament, but faded late to settle to fourth place.
The Bullpups started with wins over Derby (25-22, 25-23) and Campus (25-14).
The day started to turn with a narrow 23-25, 25-27 loss to Hutchinson, which was followed by two more losses, Newton (12-25, 22-25) and Hutchinson again (17-25, 14-25).
MHS coach Diane Marshall said the first loss to Hutchinson seemed to take some of the spark out of the day, but the team still played hard.
The Bullpups, now 20-11, finish their season Tuesday at Clearwater.
