SALINA — McPherson High’s volleyball team has advanced to the Class 4A Division I Final Four.

The Bullpups had their backs up against the wall Friday after losing 28-30, 22-25 in their very first match of the day to Louisburg.

But they responded with wins over DeSoto (25-22, 25-20) and Andale (30-28, 25-15) to come out of their pool 2-1.

MHS will play Topeka Hayden in the semifinals at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Bicentennial Center. The Bullpups may actually have gotten a good draw since the other semi matches current champion Miege and Louisburg, who lost to the Stags in that title match last year.

The Bullpups are now 35-7 as they attempt to win their second state title in three years. They were the state runner-up in 2011.
