BUHLER— The McPherson High School volleyball continues its mean streak of sweeping the competition. On Tuesday, the Bullpups did the same to their league rivals and host Buhler High School ( 25-20, 29-27) and Circle High School ( 25-19, 25-16) during the Triangular.
A great night of Bullpup Volleyball," Bullpups Head coach Christy Doile said. "Thank you to our student section and our 9th grade volleyball team for bringing their loud, engaged support. It was an electric atmosphere in the gym."
All of the Bullpups' win lasted in two sets. Against the Thunderbirds, Katie Berg shined on the court that Circle's Head coach was impressed on her performance. The whole night Berg recorded 11 kills and two blocks.
"Against Circle, Katie Berg had a really good match at the net," Doile said. "The opposing head coach told myself and Katie how well she played after the match."
It was a tighter match against the Crusaders. However, the Bullpups continued its high percentages in kills and serves. Cassie Cooks closed the deal with a joust at the net in the second set. Rhian Swanson led the Bullpups with 22 kills. Brette Doile was the assist leader with 37, and Taylor Casebeer had 19 digs. Ella Schmid impacted the Bullpups with her serves as she finished with four aces. They also were able to keep their errors at a minimum the whole night.
"I was happy with our team leadership through the highs and lows of the matches," Doile said. "We will continue to improve our serving, reducing blocking errors, and raising our hitting efficiency. We had a great team effort, using Berg, Sweat, Swanson and Cooks," Doile said. "(Brette) Doile even snuck in a timely kill at the end of the tight set vs. Buhler. All hitters got timely kills and responded well after an error."
The Bullpups will focus on Saturday when they compete in the Newton Invitational, where 10 other teams will be participating. The tournament will begin at 8:30 a.m.
