IOWA CITY– Justin Lutjen has been named head softball coach at Iowa City West High School pending board approval.
Coach Lutjen has been the head coach at Mid-Prairie the past four seasons after being an assistant there previously. Coach Lutjen has led Mid-Prairie to the state softball tournament in each of his four seasons at the helm, in addition to winning the school’s first ever softball conference title.
West athletic director Scott Kibby is enthusiastic about Coach Lutjen and the future of West softball. “Coach Lutjen brings tremendous passion and work ethic for the game of softball. He has shown the ability to improve his teams and individuals as the season progresses. We anticipate he will bring this same level of enthusiasm and success to West High as he experienced at Mid-Prairie.”
