Posted:

WHITEWATER (WKOW) -- About 17 hours after winning the program's fifth Division III national championship in seven years, the UW-Whitewater football team returned home. The team loaded on top of fire trucks and paraded around the streets of Whitewater, showing off its new hardware. Dozens of fans lined the streets to congratulate their Warhawks.

All five Whitewater titles have come under head coach Lance Leipold, who improved his postseason record to 29-1 with the Warhawks. Leipold turns 50 in May and says he's looking forward to the next challenge ahead as the head coach at UW-Whitewater.
