AGWSR was looking to end its regular season, and send out senior starter Rachel Sicrad, with a win on Senior Night in Ackley Tuesday. They didn’t get it, but continued to build the program under first-year head coach Jill Smith. The Cougars fell in four sets (20-25, 25-22, 25-10, 25-15) to the visiting Aplington-Parkersburg Falcons, to end the regular season at 10-15.
Smith said her team continued to be its own worst enemy. But, she added, some of the problems stem from a lack of program success. With the post season starting Tuesday (Oct. 22), now would be the time to fix those things. AGWSR faced Fort Dodge St. Edmond in a first round Class 1A regional game in Fort Dodge.
