The Cherokee Braves made their sixth consecutive trip to the Iowa High School State Baseball Tournament at Principal Park in Des Moines in July 2010. The Braves had an up-and-down season and finished the regular season with a 13-13 record. They got hot at the right time, though, winning four straight in the District and Sub-State tournaments to earn another trip to Des Mines. The Braves are the only team in the state which has played in the State tourney all six years that it has been played at Principal Park. The sixth seeded Braves drew third seeded Kuemper Catholic of Carroll for their first-round game, which was played at 6 p.m. on Monday July 26.
