Cook ready for 18th year with Kohawks

Steve Cook has the ingredients for his own girls basketball team in his household with five daughters, although 2-month-old Lucy might need a little seasoning.

"Everybody says you should keep trying for a boy," Cook said Wednesday, laughing, "and I'm like, 'I've got boys every day in my life here at Coe.' I'm fine with the five girls I've got."

Cook is entering his 18th year as the head baseball coach at Coe College with a 365-344-1 record and three titles in the Iowa Conference tournament. He's got 37 guys on his roster, so he's perfectly happy to head home to his wife, Shannon, and daughters Callie, Shelby, Lilly, Maggie and Lucy and leave the boys behind for awhile.

He's won 516 games as the head coach at Coe College the past 16 years, with two trips to the NCAA Division III World Series and a second-place showing in 2009.

Wash ousted by hot-shooting Rams

The Washington girls' storybook basketball season ended Tuesday night because they were less than perfect.

With Southeast Polk shooting the lights out at the Prairie gym in the Class 5A regional final, perfection would have been the only way for the Warriors to win.

They fell short, 79-71, but only because the other girls hardly missed.

“We didn't lose due to a shortage of point production or lack of effort,” said Washington Coach Frank Howell. “We lost to a great team that played exceptionally well. They just outscored us.”

Counting free throws, the Class 5A ninth-ranked Rams (16-6) took 65 shots and made 42 of them.
