Gladbrook-Reinbeck (6-1, 2-0) had six matches under their belt when the AGWSR Cougars (0-1, 0-1) traveled to Reinbeck Tuesday night. It was the season opener for the visitors. G-R, ranked 11th in Class 1A, were the prohibitive favorites to sweep the North Iowa Cedar League-West tilt.
But nobody told the visitors. While the Cougars lost, it took four hard-fought sets (25-21, 25-19, 22-25, 25-21) for the Rebels to win.
