UW-Whitewater dethroned Stevens Point in the WIAC baseball tournament in what seemed long overdue. The Pointers had won 5 consecutive conference tournaments coming in, but thanks to a sweep of th Pointers on Saturday the Warhawks ended that run.
Whitewater trailed until the eighth inning of game one, when the offense finally broke through for 4 runs. Whitewater took that game 5-3.
In the second game the Warhawks jumped out to a 3-0 lead after scoring a run in the first and 2 more in the second. They never relinquished that lead and won game two 6-2.
UW-Whitewater receives an automatic berth in the DIII NCAA tournament with the win.
