NAPPANEE, Ind. (WNDU) - A 13-year conference title drought came to an end for the Mishawaka softball team on Friday night.

The Cavemen beat NorthWood 11-1 to clinch this year’s Northern Lakes Conference championship outright. It’s the first-ever NLC title for Mishawaka, who joined the conference just three seasons ago.

“Well, only being in the league for a short while, it means a lot,” says Mishawaka head softball coach Brian Miller. “We’ve been the runner-up the last couple of years and just a game or two short against a really great Northridge program, so it’s nice to have clinched it here tonight in a tough game against NorthWood.”

Mishawaka locks up the conference title with just under two weeks remaining in the regular season.

“What does it mean? A lot of things,” Miller says. “These kids have worked really hard as a group, and after being runner-up two years in a row, maybe we’ll call it third time’s the charm.”
