Brookelyn Hoeppner got the pitching win for Cherokee at Storm Lake, giving up just one earned run on just one hit and two walks, while striking out six in four innings or work, with the game called early due to the 10-run mercy rule.

The WHS gals pounded out 11 hits and were the recipients of a whopping 19 walks by Storm Lake hurler Krier.

Leading the scoring barrage for Cherokee were Megan Hummel 3-3 with three RBI and five runs scored, Ariana Smith 4-4 with five RBI and two runs scored, Danni Roethler 1-3 with one RBI and three runs scored, and Erin Kelley 1-2 with one RBI and three runs scored.

Emily Haselhoff took the narrow pitching loss against Spirit Lake, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and six walks, with one K in seven innings of work. Indian pitcher Newman struck out 11 Cherokee batters in posting the shutout.

Cherokee managed just three hits off Newman, with Kaitlyn Kennebeck going 2-3, and Grace Teusink stroking the other hit. Cherokee threatened in the fourth and seventh innings after getting two runners on and one out, but could not drive them home.

At Emmetsburg, Hoeppner got the mound loss, allowing five earned runs on nine hits and two walks, with five Ks in three innings pitched. Haselhoff threw one inning and gave up one run and one hit.
