The AGWSR Cougars opened and closed the North Iowa Cedar League-West season with a sweep. In between the first broom of BCLUW on Dec. 6 and the last against Gladbrook-Reinbeck Friday in Ackley, they combined for just two other sweeps within league play.
It didn’t look like the Cougars would get that bookend, however. The host girls battled to a sluggish 39-29 win. Then, down by as many as 14 points in the third quarter, the Cougar boys erupted for a 50-45 win.
