"We've been improving every day," said a pleased Cherokee coach Sherry Miller, who has done a great job of weaving veteran players with younger players to creat a solid nucleus and build chemistry on the squad.
"E-LC put up a great fight. Sarah had a big night for us and Kelsie has really helped the Cherokee volleyball team. We're starting to grow as a team. We are starting to communicate with each other. With this communication, we are now seeing a change in the attitudes on and off the court.
"They are a great bunch of girls and there is only going to be positive things happening for this Cherokee team moving forward."
