The Luther College softball team enters the NCAA division three regionals on a roll. The Norse have won 12 straight games and will be the top seed in a regional in Whitewater, Wisconsin later this week.
Luther coach Renae Hartl says every coach plans to have the team peak at the end and it is exciting to see that happening. The Norse are 30-5 and open against St. Norbert. Two other Iowa Conference teams, Simpson and Central will compete in a regional in Indianola.
Hartl says they are actually closer in distance to Whitewater than Indianola, so it makes sense. The difference this year is that they haven’t seen some of the other teams, but she say that is good because you can just go in and play and not worry about the past.
Luther won the Iowa Conference tournament championship this past weekend.
