Ali Gerbracht

AGWSR senior catcher Ali Gerbracht helped save a run here in the first inning of Monday's Class 1A Region 7 title game in Clarksville. The hosts went on to a 6-1 win, ending the Cougars' season at 11-5 and one game shy of returning to the State Tournament.

The third-ranked Clarksville Indians have one of the best pitchers in the state. Coupled with a defense that committed just 16 errors all season, that made a formidable opponent for the 14th-ranked AGWSR Cougars. One that with six walks and two costly errors, the things that have pestered the Cougars all season, could not be overcome.

After scoring first, the Cougars gave up six unanswered runs – four in the fifth inning alone – to fall 6-1 in Clarksville. The Class 1A Region 7 finals loss ended AGWSR’s season at 11-5 while sending the Indians (16-1) to the State Tournament in Fort Dodge.
