The Pleasantville summer teams may have ended their season earlier than hoped, but plenty of history was made in their final year in the Pride of Iowa Conference.

Both the baseball and softball teams were conference champs to claim their final two banners from the league before departing. Head Coach of the baseball team Sheldon Card tells KNIA/KRLS Sports the team put their time in and it was special for the program to go out on top. Card was quick to give props to Jan Haugen, head coach of the softball team, for a conference title in his first year back in the program after over 20 years off.

Softball finished the year 22-11 and 14-1 in conference while the baseball team was 23-12 and 15-2 in the POI.

Pleasantville leaves after 18 years in the league and the school will join the West Central Conference this fall.
