The Man -
Lynn Jolly, Cherokee Braves veteran boys track and field head coach and assistant football coach, also directs the District's Weight Lifting Program located in the spiffy, recently renovated "Cherokee Ironworks" facility in the former National Guard Armory on the Washington High School Campus. Since its humble beginnings years ago in a tiny room adjacent to the WHS gym, the Braves weight training facility is today a state of the art gem with all new equipment, a spacious building, and a growing number of Cherokee athletes utilizing its benefits, thanks largely to the efforts of Jolly, Activities Director Neil Phipps, and the Cherokee Athletic Boosters.

The Cherokee Braves wrestling team will again join hands with Blaine's Culligan of Cherokee to sell softner salt to area residents at a discount price.
Residents can purchase the salt at $6.50 for a 50-pound bag by contacting any Cherokee Braves wrestler, or Washington High varsity wrestling coach Jason Wood at 229-1970, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The softener salt sale runs through Nov. 28, with salt delivery by the wrestlers scheduled for Dec. 3.
All proceeds go towards the proposed wrestling mat and hoist system to be installed in the Cherokee WHS gymnasium.
