The AGWSR Cougars had almost all the tools in place to repeat as North Iowa Cedar League-West champs. Then an offseason injury hindered them. An eligibility issue didn’t help. With that, they didn’t have the group together intact until the second half of the conference season.
By then, the Cougars had already lost two games, one each to eventual champion BCLUW and the other to runner-up East Marshall. They lost to those two in the second go around, to, by identical 1-0 scores. The four losses gave them an 8-4 conference mark and a third place finish.
