Luther hosted the two-day, 36-hole Norse Classic at Fox Ridge Golf Club in Dike, Iowa.

The University of Dubuque won the team title posting rounds of 317-310 for a 627. Mount Mercy was second with a 633, followed by Wartburg College at 634.

Interim Head Coach Jane Hildebrand entered her entire roster to form two teams. The first team finished fourth with a 645. The Luther White team finished in a two-way tie for seventh with Simpson College at 685.

Individually, Dubuque's Daniela Miranda finished six over, posting rounds of 74-76 for a 150 to earn medalist honors. Morgan Kranz and Natale Cook of Mount Mercy both finished four strokes back at 154.  There were 59 players in the field. Kranz shot rounds of 78-76, while Cook shot rounds of 80-74.

Also playing on the Norse first squad and how they finished included Kelly Schultz (15th - 161), Sydney Maule (T-27th - 167), Linda Jiang (T-29th - 168) and Maddy Wedmore (38th - 172).

The Luther White team was led by Alayna Eichstadt (T-18th - 163), Riley Bartlett (T-29th - 168), Aimee Hodges (T29th - 168), Emma Fretheim (T-48th - 186) and Layne Kiehne (58th - 227).
