Pacific Lutheran, which won the 2012 NCAA Division III national softball championship, will be one of several teams featured in the CBS Sports NCAA spring highlight show scheduled to air at 11 a.m. this Saturday, June 23 on KIRO Channel 7.

Following is the program listing information posted on www.kirotv.com: "CBS Sports Presents Championships of the NCAA. NCAA Spring Highlight Show, Part 2 (HD, New) A look back at highlights and student-athletes profiles from the eighteen NCAA Division II and III spring sports championships, including softball and baseball."

The segment on the PLU softball team is expected to focus on head coach Erin Van Nostrand, a New York native whose intensely competitive nature reaped the Lutes a national championship in just her fourth season leading the program.

Pacific Lutheran defeated Northwest Conference rival Linfield, 3-0, to win its first-ever NCAA Division III softball championship. The game was played May 21 in Salem, Va.
