Wartburg is a heavy favorite to win a fifth straight Iowa Conference baseball title this spring. The Knights are coming off a 41-9 record last year that included a trip to the division three world series and coach Joel Holst says despite battling the weather this week they have been able to get a number of games in. With five all-conference players back this year Holst says expectations are high. Holst says the Knights will get plenty of challenges during the conference race. Wartburg is scheduled to open the conference race against Luther this afternoon.
