AUBURNDALE, Fla. - St. Norbert College registered just seven hits on the day as the Green Knights dropped a pair of games to open the season with losses of 4-0 and 6-1 to Grinnell College at the Lake Myrtle Complex.

St. Norbert managed two hits in the opener - a single by Sean Grant in the second inning and a double by Nathan Jack in the seventh inning.
