Off to a 16-2 start to the season the A-G-W-S-R (Ackley) baseball team moved into the class 2A rankings. Coach Steve Rosken felt that this team would be strong after the Cougars were eliminated in the district finals in 2003. He says they start six sophomores and only three seniors, so he thought they would be good, but didn’t know. Rosken says the Cougars have six quality starters on the mound, and are getting a lot of strike outs. Through 18 games the Cougars have outscored their opponents 161-41 but Rosken says there are some areas that need to improve if they want to make a long tournament run. He says their base-running and some situations, like sacraficing, need to get better. AGWSR returns to action tonight against Dike-New Hartford.
