Emily Cook led WHS in hitting with a 16-17 effort and eight kills, while Julie Miller was 12-14 with five kills, and Taylor Woods 8-9 with four kills. Cook also was 4-6 blocking with one kill, Dawson 2-2 with a kill, and Woods 1-2 with a kill.

Husman led in setting with 53-53 and 16 assists, while megan Hummel was 4-4 with two assists, and Woods 3-3 with one assist. Carlson was 3-3 digging, and Shaefer 2-2. Carlson also was 14-17 in serve receptions, and Shaefer was 16-18, and Hummel 5-6.

"In a couple of the games, we let our serve receive slip away from us," said Cherokee coach Sherry Miller. "We are doing better. Lauren Husman has been doing a great job setting. Emily Cook is doing a great job in the middle."
