A local college softball team has set a new school record for wins in a season.

Illinois College split with Illinois Wesleyan yesterday. The Lady Blue lost game one 8-7 in eight innings, but came back and won the second game 8-7.

The split boosts the IC record to 24-11, and sets a new single season wins record. The previous record was 23 set in 2007.

IC will be the number 3 seed in the Midwest Conference Tournament this weekend. The conference will be Friday and Saturday in De Pere, Wisconsin. IC opens against Cornell Friday morning at 10.
