The McPherson High School JV volleyball team won the Great Bend tournament Saturday, winning five games, including three back-to-back.
McPherson defeated Newton 2-0 (25-23, 25-11), Hays 2-1 (25-19, 12-25, 15-9) Great Bend 2-1 (22-25, 25-17, 15-9), Scott City 2-0 (25-16, 25-12) and Dodge City 2-1 (23-25, 25-19, 15-11).
The win was especially impressive, as the Pups are without libero Addie Simon, who is out with a knee injury.
“So this past week in practice, we have had to work new people into defensive positions,” MHS coach Diane Marshall said. “Taylor Metz, Taylor Neufeldt and Chelsey Kerr have all stepped up their defense and joined Ashtyn Schieferecke on the back row.”
