"This tournament is nice because it has a lot of teams that we don't see during the year," said Cherokee coach Julie Hummel.
"The girls played extremely hard in this tournament. We had to change our lineup when Megan carlson got hurt (at MOC-FV Tournament) last week and we worked the rest of the week with the new lineup and I thought the girls played very well. They work really well together and always give their best effort."
Cherokee plays in an entertaining neighborhood triangular tonight in Correctionville featuring host River Valley and Ridge View.
