Cherry's softball team has quite a streak going, five straight state tournament appearances.

Next up is Browerville in a battle of teams nicknamed the Tigers as they'll match-up on Thursday in the State A Quarterfinals. Two years ago, Cherry won the State Title and this year's squad has won 22 of their 26 games.

"I believe we have come a long ways since the beginning of the season and being as though we all get a long so great, that has helped us out with the success that we have had this year," says Kacie Herring, a senior pitcher.

"We have five seniors this year and many of our players have been to state. I have been to state four times and so, I know what to expect and how it is going to be," says Heidi Olson, a senior infielder.

"Usually, it is four or more runs to get through a game and so, that is going to be key for us. We need to produce runs when we are asked to execute and get an opportunity to score runs, we have to take advantage of that," says Head Coach Darrell Bjerklie.

The battle of the Tigers will be Thursday at 11:00 in the morning in North Mankato.
