Bunts like this, as well as other hits and stellar defensive play, landed Cougar senior on the First Team North Iowa Cedar League-West.

What was supposed to be a magical season for the AGWSR Cougars, was hamstrung before it even got started. But beyond a key injury to the 2018 all-class strikeout leader, everything else was in place for a big run.

One thing, though, the volatile Cougar offense sputtered at times. Ultimately, that’s what cost them a return trip to Fort Dodge where they finished second a season ago.
