The Luther College baseball team continues to make progress under second year coach Bryan Nikkel. After posting a 20-23 record a year ago the Norse have raced out to an 11-1 start, including a 7-1 record on a trip to Arizona.
As a team the Norse are batting .383 and the team earned run average is 3.81.
“I knew we would pitch it pretty well”, said Nikkel. “We have got a lot of new people in the lineup so you don’t really go into it saying what our record is going to be but I knew we had the kind of kids in our program who want to work hard and get better every day.”
Luther starts the Iowa Conference race on Friday by opening a four game series at Central.
“I think we have the potential to do some really good things in our program but we can’t crown ourselves for going 11-1 in the first 12 games.”
