DES MOINES – Taryan Barrick led a foursome of Class 1A state runner-up AGWSR’s softball team to the Iowa Girls’ Coaches Association all-state teams with a first-team nod, announced last week.

Barrick, a junior ace for the Cougars, helped lead AGWSR to the state title game for the first time since 2015. She repeats as a first-teamer.

She led the state in strikeouts with 392 and a stingy ERA of 0.93, which was fourth overall in Class 1A. She compiled a 27-6 record this season.
