With two weeks remaining in the regular season the Iowa softball team is chasing Michigan in the Big Ten standings. The Hawkeyes are 11-3 in the conference race, two games behind the Big Ten leading Wolverines. The regular season champion hosts the Big Ten Tournament. Iowa coach Gayle Blevins says the top seed is not in their control, so they have to do what they can control. The Hawkeyes went through a streak this season in which they struggled scoring runs. The bats came alive when the Big Ten season began. She says they seem to be more resilient during difficult moments. She says early on they seemed to have trouble even if they got one run behind. Blevins says the season turned around once the Hawkeyes started to get timely hitting. She says that’s a big part of the game. Iowa visits Western Illinois on Wednesday before visiting Minnesota and Wisconsin in Big Ten play this weekend.
