MaKenna Kuper connected here in a win over Grundy Center. On her back, and those of her coaches and teammates, was who she was playing for in the Swing for Cancer game.

The AGWSR Cougars donned pink for cancer awareness last Monday night in Ackley. Not only did they “swing for a cure,” they swung to a 10-0 North Iowa Cedar League-West win over Grundy Center.

The night was emotional from the start as the Cougars wore special jerseys remembering and honoring those that each player knew who have died, have or have had the disease. Each AGWSR player and coach introduced themselves during the line-ups, and told the crowd who they had on their back. It ranged from friends to grandparents.
