Six teams remain in the hunt for the regular season title as the Iowa Conference baseball race enters the final stages. Coe College sits at the top with a record of 12-6 and coach Steve Cook’s team controls its own destiny. Cook says that’s the position you want to be in as you chase for a title. He says the players realize they control what happens with every play and every pitch.
Coe returns to action on Wednesday with a doubleheader against arch rival Cornell. Cook says they always have a good series no matter how strong or how weak each team is. Four other teams also have six losses, including Buena Vista which has a 9-6 record. The Beavers won last year’s championship with just four losses.
Buena Vista coach Steve Eddie says the talent in the league overall is much better this year. He says this season one bad weekend won’t knock a team out of the race. And he says it you worry about yourself and play good baseball, you will have a chance to win.
Buena Vista returns to action at home on Wednesday against Central. At 8-7 the Dutch are sixth in the league race.
