ALLISON — North Butler earned a big Top of Iowa Conference win over West Fork at its place on Friday, June 7.

Responding to two quick runs by the Warhawks in the top of the first, the Bearcats answered with two runs of their own and then went ahead for good with a four-run rally over West Fork’s ace Lukas Wogen.

“We actually switched things up with our guys,” North Butler coach Travis Miller said of his lineup. “I told them we were going to shake it up a little bit, change the order around, not anybody different, just the order as far as when they batted and get some confidence back and I think they all did a nice job responding to it.”
