The Vision for PLU Softball


In Spring 2012 the PLU softball team completed an impressive season that included a National Championship win, two Academic All-Americans, a Division III award for National Coaching Staff of the Year, and a NCAA post-graduate scholarship for team pitcher Stacey Hagensen. The Softball team gave PLU another reason to be proud of being Lutes. Now is the time to give back to these phenomenal student-athletes!

PLU is striving to create a first class softball facility that will:

  • Help attract potential student athletes
  • Provide a venue to host NCAA Division III playoff games
  • Create an opportunity for year-round practice and games for PLU
Support the Vision for PLU Softball

"There is a sense of pride in having a quality facility. These upgrades validate our program as a championship- winning team."

-Erin Van Nostrand- Head Softball Coach

Planned Improvements for the field include:

  • New playing surface for infield and outfield

  • Dugouts (Under construction)
