After getting down 0-2, Ellsworth Community College was on the brink of getting swept by Northeast Community College.
For week four of the high school football season, Iowa Falls-Alden hosts Prairie City Monroe in their Class 2A District 7 opener; South Hardin hosts Dike-New Hartford to begin Class 1A District 3 play; and AGWSR travels to Wapsie Valley in Class A District 3 action.
The AGWSR Cougars gave the 11th-ranked in Class 2A Grundy Center Spartans all they could want Tuesday in Grundy Center. The visitors fell in four sets (25-23, 18-25, 18-25, 24-26) and are now 6-6 overall and 1-2 in the North Iowa Cedar League-West.
After dropping a set in uncharacteristic fashion, the South Hardin coaches told their players it was time to fight like tigers. Co-head coach John Teske said to pin their ears back, get mad and fight for their team. He told them not to let a ball drop and keep swinging and being aggressive.
Jaidyn Teske does not give up on a ball.
The South Hardin cross country teams were without some of its regulars on Monday night.
