Carleton #2 dispatched Iowa #6  10-9 in pool play and Iowa State #8 12-10 in finals to take the top spot at North Central Regionals, moved from Minnesota to Iowa due to weather/field playability concerns. Iowa State Woman Scorned beat Iowa Saucy Nancy 13-10 for second place, while Wisconsin #13 earned the fourth spot after handily beating Minnesota #11 15-6.
