Cherry Tigers are state softball champs!

Congratulations to the girls from my alma mater, Cherry High School, for their state championship victory today. Cherry is a tiny school. I graduated from a class of 38 and it’s much smaller now. Their only other team championship prior to this was the 1997 baseball title won when I went to school there (and watched from the stands … on account of my spastic ways). I rode back in a long parade of cars from the game in St. Cloud, the unforgettably-named Dick Putz field. There were hundreds of people — which means all the people in Cherry — along Highway 37 waving and honking horns. They parked the fire trucks out in front of the Clinton Township Hall and set the lights going. The boys emerged from the bus in tears.

I hope the girls get the same welcome home today. Congratulations, Tigers.
