The Coe softball team opens division three regional play on Thursday against defending national champion Wisconsin-Eau Claire in Bloomington, Illinois. The Kohawks earned the automatic bid after winning the Iowa Conference tournament title over the weekend.
Coe coach Bob Timmons says it was the first time since he’s been coaching that they knew for sure they were in. Four Iowa Conference teams qualified for regional play but the Kohawks are the only one at the Bloomington regional.
Timmons says playing in the Iowa Conference tournament has his team ready for the regional, as he says the tournament atmosphere and the level of play needed really helps the team prepare for the postseason.
