CLARKSVILLE — Clarksville coach Katie Wedeking and her 1A third-ranked Indians weren’t taking anything for granted.
 
They knew a sub-.500 Starmont team in the regional final could be dangerous.
 
And they made sure there were no upsets brewing this time in a 10-0, five-inning victory at home on Monday, July 15. The Indians (31-1) face ninth-rated Algona Garrigan to open on Monday, July 22 at 1:30 at Rogers Park in Fort Dodge.
 
“They didn’t get to pick out state shirts this year,” coach Wedeking said, “we didn’t talk about hotels, we didn’t talk about anything like we did last year. We weren’t looking at anything past today.”
 
The Indians combined for 13 hits and Kori Wedeking threw a two-hit, 11-strikeout shutout of the Stars.
