The Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) has announced that Luther Head Coach Danielle Lynch was named the league's Coach of the Year, along with Wartburg co-head coaches Jennifer Walker and Doug Frazell. This is the first time Lynch has been so honored.
Lynch, who just completed her third year at the helm of the program, led the Norse to a league record of 4-3 and the No. 4 seed for the Iowa Conference six-team tournament. After defeating University of Dubuque 3-1 in the first round, her team fell one set away from upsetting No. 1 Wartburg in the semifinals, losing to the Knights 3-2.
