Luke Starr

Luke Starr, one of three AGWSR seniors, went five innings of Saturday's Class 1A District 3 Final in Mason City. The three-time defending State champions from Newman handed him a 6-0 loss.

The AGWSR Cougars were enjoying the winningest season ever for the program. The shortened schedule saw them build a 10-1 record heading into Saturday’s Class 1A Dist. 3 final. Now they have the memory of a 10-2 season following a 6-0 loss to the Mason City Newman on the Knights’ home diamond.

AGWSR head coach Dave Showalter the loss is rough, but just playing in the District final was great. This year, he said it was extra special. That, he added, is a reflection of his squad.
