It has been a busy couple of weeks for the Luther College softball team but the way they are playing they don’t seem to mind. The Norse have won 11 of their last 12 games and sit at the top of the Iowa Conference race after a Tuesday doubleheader sweep of Coe College.
Luther coach Renae Hartl says she’s questioned how many games they have been playing, but she says you sometimes don’t get to play a lot of games with the Iowa weather. The Norse are an experienced team but the lone exception is the pitching staff. Sophomore Becca Girvan leads the staff after posting a 16-2 record last season.
Hartl says they have three freshmen on the staff too and they have given them some quality innings. Hartl says a veteran team is a big plus for a young pitching staff. “It’s really nice to have a very experienced mature lineup,” Hartl says. She says that experience helps produce runs to support the young pitching staff.
Luther visits St. Mary’s of Minnesota on Thursday for a non-conference matchup.
