CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Coe College collected the Iowa Conference's automatic bid to the NCAA regional with a 4-1 win over Buena Vista in the conference final.

Ben Strellner threw a complete-game six-hitter for the Kohawks allowing just one run.

Coe scored the game's first 2 runs in the second as Brennan Melloy roped an RBI single into center for a 1-0 edge.  J.D Hunter's single into right made it 2-0 Coe later in the inning.  They added a pair of unearned runs in the 4th.

The win completed Coe's second straight Iowa Conference tournament title.  They'll enter the NCAA regionals for the 5th time in school history.
