MaKenna Kuper

MaKenna Kuper's third inning home run nearly held up as the winner in Wednesday's Region 8 quarterfinal, but the AGWSR Cougars needed more to win in Ackley. They got it with a walkoff double by Rachel Sicard, plating the winning run to beat Fort Dodge St. Edmond.

Every year there seems to be an upset of major proportions during softball Regionals. Wednesday it was almost AGWSR’s turn.

The Cougars held a 1-0 lead until the seventh inning when Fort Dodge St. Edmond tied it. But with two outs in the bottom, the Cougars got perhaps their most timely hit of the season - a Rachel Sicard double - to plate the winning run in a 2-1 contest that was as tight as it sounds.
