Enjoying the success of a team that made the Class 2A regional final and almost upset the number one team in the state to make it to Fort Dodge, Coach Karen Harrill has plenty to be giddy about when peeking ahead to the 2015 season next May. Her team lost just two seniors, bring back a young and talented pitching staff, and boatloads of postseason experience from this past campaign. The Eagles also stayed competitive in a very top-heavy conference, which featured three ranked teams who all made it to the state tournament. Harrill uses a biblical metaphor to compare her team to the rest of the Little Hawkeye Conference.
“I’m looking forward to the fact that we’re going to be more experienced next year,” Harrill says. “The conference is very difficult. We’re the David in this Goliath conference. We know every game we have got to come in and play hard, because you’re going to see one of the top pitchers in the state, that’s the way it is.”
The Eagles went 16 – 19 in 2014.
