A season after the AGWSR Cougars tied two other teams atop the North Iowa Cedar League-West, they finished sixth. That wasn’t the goal, but as head coach Dave Showalter said all season, that’s baseball.
“Every year our goal is to compete towards a conference championship,” Showalter said. “Last year we had a lot of timely hitting and found ways to score runs when needed. This year the ball didn’t always bounce our way or get a hit when needed. Credit to our opponents, we faced a lot of good pitching and good teams. Obviously we wanted to have a better record, but I loved the way we competed all season and we were in a lot games.”
