EL DORADO — McPherson High’s girls swimming team took a solid third place on Friday in the 10-team El Dorado Invitational.

“El Dorado turned out to be a great meet for us,” MHS coach Abby Bradstreet said. “It has been a while since we swam in a meet, so it felt good to get back in the pool and see the improvements the girls have made. We have been working on fine-tuning the small details and it was exciting to see some of the girls put those changes into their races. The girls had high energy and had some great races.”

Bradstreet was especially happy with the relay events.

“All of our relays did excellent with our A-teams placing second, third and fifth,” she said.  

There were some individual standouts as well.

“Megan Cutting had an amazing day today, placing second in both of her individual events.  Katie Wurm also had a second-place finish in the 100 freestyle,” Bradstreet said. “Despite not feeling well, Shea Cook also had a great day with a pair of fifth-place finishes in both of her individual events. We have so many talented swimmers with great attitudes. It's fun to watch the girls swim and be successful.”

MHS next competes on May 1 at Great Bend.
