Summary:

Cherokee used a pair of big innings to break open tight games, and rebounded from an opening game loss to Elkhart to capture the state title. Elkhart scored seven first-inning runs in the opener, and added tallies in five of the game's six innings to outslug Cherokee. Elkhart rapped out ten hits, and also benefited from nine walks and three hit batters.

In game two, Cherokee held a 3-2 lead before scoring seven in the fourth inning. Pitcher Doug Jones scattered six hits and walked only three, while Joe Ewan contributed a home run. In the deciding game, Cherokee grabbed an early 1-0 lead on a third inning RBI groundout, and broke the game open with a 10-run fourth inning rally. Cherokee scored eight of the inning's ten runs before Elkhart recorded an out. A bloop single and four consecutive walks widened the lead to 3-0, and Heath Perry's ground-rule double (5-0), Ewan's single (7-0), Jones' double (8-0), and pitcher Joe Ulery's single (9-0) stretched the lead. An error and a double steal provided the final margin of victory. Ulery scattered three hits while shutting down Elkhart's offensive attack.
