Defending state champs too much for WHS

The second-ranked Class 2A Hull Western Christian Wolfpack swept three Lakes Conference games from Cherokee Washington High by the scores of 25-11, 25-16, 25-10 here Tuesday night.

"We really struggled with our serve receiving and serving all night," said Cherokee coach Sherry Miller.
