Ben Macy

Ben Macy led the Cougars at the plate while also flashing a solid glove. He was a second team selection to the NICL-West.

Fresh off their first winning season in almost a decade, AGWSR had some lofty goals this past baseball season. Graduation, as expected, took a chunk out of the arsenal. Still, going better than 5-14 was definitely the goal.

“We wanted to build off of last year and improve,” head coach Dave Showalter said. “And although the record may not show it, I believe we improved in a number of ways. We had a good year. We faced some tremendous individual players and opponents this season, and we competed in every game. The ball may not have bounced our way here or there and that’s how the games go sometimes, but I am very excited in the direction of the program.”
