Last month Kirkwood Community College Head Softball Coach Joe Yegge captured his 400th win against Des Moines Area Community College. 

In the game against DMACC on March 26, Yegge’s team improved to a 25-4 record on the season and he improved his career overall record of 400-91 after nine years as Kirkwood’s head coach. 

Yegge said, “It’s not about what I have done, it’s about what these girls have done. I just try to keep up with all the other Kirkwood athletic programs.”

He added, “I took the job because the program was so successful and I have to do my part. I didn’t want to be the guy who was unsuccessful.” 

Sophomore infielder Katelyn Holub said Yegge makes himself available to players both on and off the field. “Outside of games he’s pretty easy to talk to, whether we have practice or just need to go to his office and talk. He’s always there to listen and give feedback,” she said.  

Holub added, “He also wants the most out of his players, by preaching to go hard, respect every game and play it the way it should be played.” 

Softball has 14 games remaining on the season before entering the regional tournament. The team is currently 37 – 4 overall and 15 – 1 in the conference.
