A talented Spirit Lake volleyball team swept young Cherokee Washington High 3-0 in Lakes Conference action in Cherokee Thursday night, claiming game scores of 25-17, 25-18, 25-12.

The Indians limited Cherokee's serving and hitting attempts with a strong defense and aggressive offense.

Woodall paced the WHS gals in setting with 65-69 and 14 kills. Kaely Hummel led in digs with 17, followed by Megan Hummel 12, Haselhoff eight, and Ramirez six.

Brookelyn Hoeppner and Gerdes each registered a block assist in the fast-moving match.

"We did not play up to our potential tonight," said Cherokee coach Julie Hummel. "We will regroup quickly and be ready to come back strong at Spencer Tuesday night."
