Four Iowa Conference teams open division three regional action on Thursday. Coe takes part in a regional in Bloomington, Illinois and opens tomorrow morning against defending national champion Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Kohawks coach Bob Timmons says at this point every opponent will be strong.
Timmons says there are a lot of strong teams in the regional, including Wisconsin-Whitewater, last year’s runnerup.
Luther is one of three Iowa Conference teams that are part of a regional hosted by Simpson College.
Luther takes on Washington University of St. Louis in the opening round. Central is the second seed and plays Gustavus Adolphus on Thursday night. Wartburg opens the tournament against Wisconsin-La Crosse.
