Nebraska Wesleyan finished 24-12 in 2007 and won the Association of Division III Independents Midwest Tournament in early May.
The 2007 season also saw Kingery surpass the century mark in career victories. He now has 114 wins in six seasons as head coach at NWU. Kingery ranks second behind Doug Ahlberg (122 wins in nine season) and needs only nine more victories to become Nebraska Wesleyan’s all-time winningest softball coach.
