After coming off of second place Iowa Conference, the 2017-18 Luther College women's basketball team is looking forward to continuing the pursuit of excellence.

We practice and play with GRIT (Guts, Resilience, Intensity, and Toughness). The Norse will return four starters, including All Iowa Conference Award Winners Katie Waller and Laura Hamilton. This team will play a competitive regular season schedule of 25 games that includes 11 non-conference games against teams throughout the Midwest Region.

Active in the Community

Individually, our players participate in events such as take a kid to the game, 2nd grade mini clinic, and Decorah Food & Fitness Initiatives. In the fall we provide youth basketball clinics such as Jr. Norse and Future Norse. This is a great opportunity to not only interact with the youth but to keep our fundamental basketball skills sharp.
