SPENCER - Cherokee softball coach Tara Malausky summed up her squad's 8-3 loss to Spencer here on Friday in three words: "Too many errors." Indeed, Cherokee out-hit Spencer 9-8, but the Cherokee girls committed 10 errors in the field, in large part the reason for the score.
One consolation note for Cherokee - The final score could have been worse, as the Tigers stranded 10 runners.
Cherokee now has an 8-15 overall record, and is 3-8 in Lakes Conference play. The girls play Western Christian here tonight (Thursday) in Lakes Conference action, host BC-IG here tomorrow (Friday), and then play in the Tiger/Knight Tournament in Carroll on Saturday.
