About St. Norbert College Women’s Softball

We started our softball program in 1980. The first year for fastpitch was 1983. The Green Knights claimed their first Midwest Conference title in 1991 and have won a total of five league crowns. We have played in four NCAA Division III Tournaments. In 2010, we finished third in the Great Lakes Regional while winning a school-record 33 games.

We play our home games at Mel Nicks Field in De Pere.
