The AGWSR Cougars have battled some of the best teams in the state this season. While grabbing a set here and there against rated squads, they never won a match. They had one more chance Monday in a Class 1A Region 3 semifinal. It was the tallest order yet, but the Cougars did not just hand it over.
For two sets, the top-ranked Janesville Wildcats (27-4) had to fight to keep the AGWSR Cougars (10-17) at-bay. By the third set, however, the hosts simply had had enough and put the Cougars away (25-19, 25-21, 25-10).
