Including Cal Lutheran there are 446 Division III institutions around the country. During the week of April 8-14, all members will host Division III Week, aimed at celebrating what those schools have to offer student-athletes in the classroom, in the field of play and in the community.
When Cal Lutheran and Whitman met on the court in the first round of the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Tournament tonight both teams were looking for the first postseason win in their respective school’s history. At the Pamplin Sports Center on the campus of Lewis & Clark it was the Missionaries who would move on as the Regals fell 61-37.
Tomorrow evening the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Tournament is set to begin at 16 different sites around the nation. At Lewis & Clark Cal Lutheran and Whitman will match up in neutral territory for a first round game at 5:30 p.m.
Although it would be hard to tell from the outside, the Cal Lutheran women’s basketball program has been riding an emotional roller coaster this season. Every high point has been followed by a low point, and every low point has been followed by a high point.
