A program doesn’t become good overnight. It takes a strong foundation and a lot of work and dedication to become a powerhouse year after year.

South Hardin is taking the steps to rebuild as first year head coach Becky Rosonke takes over the program that has struggled in recent years. In five seasons, the Tigers have won a total of 27 games. The first step was focusing on the basics – like hitting and scoring. Rosonke brought in 2018’s National Federation of State High School Associations Iowa and Midwest National Coach of the Year, Andi Adams (Fort Dodge), to try and help all levels get better with their approach and hitting techniques. That is one way they hope to improve their runs scored from a year ago. In 2018, the Tigers averaged just 2.7 runs per game and were shut out of 16 games.
