Courtney Cooper improved to 5-0 tossing a complete game shutout. Cooper, who retired the first eight batters she faced, spread four hits over seven innings, walked one and struck out seven.
Bailey Victoria, Blake Banowetz and Bailey Hocker all had three hits. Victoria drove in two runs with a double in the fourth, while Hocker drove in a run with a double in the fifth. Hocker and Natalie Stockman were both credited with one RBI.
The win was Luther's eighth in a row and increased its overall record to 12-1.
The Norse will now play UW-Stevens Point at 2:00 p.m. EST. This is a make-up game that was not played during Luther's trip to Greenville, Ill. on March 11 due to weather conditions. The Norse won the first of the two schedule games 9-4.
