By Jon Swisher-Sports Director:

The class 2A 14th-ranked Cascade Cougar Softball team improved to 23-10 with a quarterfinal upset win over 5th-rated North Union last night in Fort Dodge. The Cougars pounced on the Warriors right away with a 4-run first inning. Cougar head coach Ken Weber was very proud of the effort by his squad:

WEBER1 7-22

Being able to have a great start to the game and set the tone early is something Coach Weber and the team strives for:

WEBER2 7-22

The victory was the first ever at the state tourney for the Cougars program and it propels them into semifinal play Thursday afternoon at 1:30pm taking on 26-8 IKM-Manning.
