SCHALLER - The improving Cherokee Washington High volleyball team posted a 1-2 match record in Saturday's rugged Schaller-Crestland Invitational here, losing to the ranked host Wildcats 2-0, defeating Rockwell City-Lytton 2-0, and falling 2-1 to East Sac County.

Cherokee game scores were 9-21, 16-21 against Schaller-Crestland; 21-13, 21-17 over RC-L; and 20-22, 21-19, 12-15 against East Sac County.

Megan Hummel paced Cherokee's hitting for the day with a 31-39 effort and 11 kills, followed by Emily Cook 18-20 and seven kills, Julie Miller 15-18 and six kills, Taylor Woods 15-18 and six kills, Jessica Cook 8-11 and two kills, Bailey English 8-11 and four kills, Lauren Husman 5-5 and one kill, and Liz Dawson 5-7 and one kill.

Hummel also led Cherokee's serving with a 31-31 effort and four aces, while Dawson was 21-34 and seven aces, Husman 16-20 and three aces, Shannon Shaefer 10-15 and three aces, and Megan Carlson 10-12 and four aces.

Husman led in setting with 103-104 and 43 assists in the tourney, while Dawson was 25-27 with seven assists. Carson led in digs with 22-29, and Shaefer was 9-12 digging.

Emily Cook led a strong Cherokee blocking effort, totaling 23-23 with three kills, followed by Dawson 21-22 and three kills, Woods 11-13 with two kills, and Jessica Cook 5-5 with one kill.

"We did well in the torunament," said Cherokee coach Sherry Miller. "I am very pleased on how we are growing. We may not have the match win, but we are taking games from rated teams. That is a plus for us in our growing stage. Megan HUmmel did a great job serving for the day, serving 100-percent."

Cherokee hosts defending State Class 2A champion Hull Western Christian Tuesday night. The Wolfpack has never lost a Lakes Conference volleyball match and is now in their 11th year of participation in the Lakes.
