Luther and Wartburg will finally play their Iowa Conference baseball series that may determine the regular season champion. The teams were to have played a twinbill last week but it was rained out twice.
Luther coach Brian Gillogly says they’re anxious to get the series going, but says they can’t do anything about the weather.
He says the next two days will go a long way toward determining the champ. Gillogly says it’s something you can use in recruitment, and they try to be in a position every year to win a conference championship.
Wartburg has won ten straight league titles and is 16-2. Luther is 15-2 and Gillogly says winning the regular season would be a boost as the conference tournament approaches.
Gillogly says the momentum of winning the regular season is important as you have a short season that starts right away. He says you get a bye if you finish in the top two spots, which he says is an advantage in the tournament.
