CC Vikings Sports Scores
The Cook County Vikings welcomed the 7-3 Cherry Tigers to Grand Marais for a Section 7A battle. The Tigers brought in a very experienced team with talented seniors and juniors on a roster of girls that have gone to the State Tournament in softball and volleyball the last two seasons. Led by inside presence Taylor Sauter, the Vikes knew they’d be in for a battle.
Senior Ashley Deschampe got the Vikings going early and often, scoring the first 18 points for the Vikings, including three 3’s to build an 18-10 lead. Junior Theresa Morrin jumped in the action and helped the Vikes to a 26-11 lead before the Tigers scored the last 7 points of the half to cut into the Viking lead. Until the last 2 minutes of the half, the Vikings did a great job inside, forcing Cherry into tough jobs and rebounding.
