The Cherokee Washington High volleyball team battled courageously to the end at Spirit Lake last week, before tumbling in a hotly contested five-game match, 25-13, 17-25, 17-25, 25-23, 16-18.

In a match at fifth-rated Sheldon (27-3) earlier last week, Cherokee was swept 17-25, 7-25, 14-25.

Against Spirit Lake, the WHS club was in spiking by Kelsie Peterson's 43-46 effort with 16 kills, and 13-15 serving with four aces.

Julie Miller was 16-21 in spiking with four kills, and was 20-21 serving with eight aces. Misty Bruhn was 13-16 spiking with three kills, and 9-10 serving, Shelby Dilla 16-16 serving with an ace, Emily Cook 13-19 spiking with three kills, and Allie Parker 6-8 spiking with one kill.

Lauren Husman led the team in setting with a 107-110 effort, and served 21-25 for a solid outing.

"We played strong. The girls did a good job," said Cherokee coach Sherry Miller. "Jullie had a great night."

At Sheldon, things didn't go so well against the highly regarded Orabs. "We did not play our best in this Lakes Conference match," said Miller.

Peterson was 9-18 spiking with four kills, and 7-10 serving with one ace. Emily Cook was 7-8 spiking with one kill, and Miller was 10-10 spiking with one kill, and 2-3 serving.
