ACKLEY - Gladbrook-Reinbeck toppled Class 1A No. 15 in one of the larger prep upsets Wednesday night 11-5 in Ackley, during the Class 1A Region 6 matchup.

Megan Swanson was 4-for-4 with a walk, three runs scored and a double and Madison White went the distance, giving up four hits, four walks and striking out two batters. Swanson is now batting 8-for-8 in the postseason, with a 4-for-4 mark against GMG on Tuesday night.

The Rebels (7-17) put up six runs in the seventh inning and held the Cougars to just one run in the bottom of the seventh and to four hits all night.

Taylor Gienger had a two-out, two-run single to spark G-R's three-run top of the first, while Rachel Cooley came in to pinch hit in the seventh with one out, driving in a pair with her double.

G-R lost to the Tigers in both meetings earlier this season, 7-1 at Ackley and 3-2 in Reinbeck. The Rebels moves on to play No. 12 Colfax-Mingo in Ackley on Friday night at 7 p.m.
