Four purple and gold signs hang on the right-field fence of Logan-Magnolia’s softball field. There’s one for each of the Panthers’ state tournament runs, and you can look at the top for a reminder of how each one ended: Fifth in 2006, runner-up in 2015, third in 2016 and sixth in 2017.

Kenzie Cunard leads Class 2-A No. 5 Logan-Magnolia in scoring (14.8), is second in assists (2.6) and is third in rebounds (4.2). The Panthers sit at 16-3 after losing to WIC foe Treynor in overtime on Tuesday.

The senior is currently the eighth-ranked 145-pounder in Class 1-A. Earlier this season, he recorded the 150th win of his career, and on Tuesday, he tallied three pins as the Panthers swept Atlantic, OA-BCIG and Woodbine while honoring longtime former coach Kent Kersten.

After losing his star pitcher to graduation on the heels of back-to-back state tournament appearances, Logan-Magnolia coach Trent Kuhl heard the talk. Consider it officially dismissed.

When Missouri Valley put together a late five-run rally last week in the Western Iowa Conference tournament semifinals, Logan-Magnolia softball coach Trent Kuhl wasn’t surprised. The team’s focus just wasn’t there that night.
