Brie Tauber joins IWSL for 2018 campaign

Brie Tauber, an outstanding student/athlete at Clarke University in Dubuque, has joined the Iowa Women's Softball League for the 2018 campaign this summer.

In addition to her work for the Clarke softball team, Tauber was named a Scholar/Athlete All-American by the NFCA in 2017 and made the Dean's List. She is studying biology and physical therapy.
