The Luther College staff takes a polar plunge, challenges the rest of the IIAC to do the same

The Luther College coaching staff was challenged to take a polar plunge, and like all good men they not only answered the call, they filmed it as well. 

The Norse staff found a naturally fed pond at Twin Springs, which they claimed houses the coldest waters in the state of Iowa. Each coach survived, but there was one casualty. Defensive line coach/head strength coach Ike Hammerly lost his glasses in the 33-degree waters of Twin Springs, and they were never recovered.

Now the Luther staff has issued a formal challenge to the rest of the Division III Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference to do the same. Are they man enough? Only time will tell.
