The University of Wisconsin Stevens Point (33-16) earned a 4-3 win over UW-Whitewater to advance to the schools 4th NCAA Division 3 College World Series and 4th overall. The Pointers will open the double elimination tournament Friday morning with a 10am start against SUNY Cortland of New York.
Stevens Point needed only one win on Saturday to win the Midwest Regional title, hosted by Whitewater. The Warhawks stole the show in the opener, pulling out a 9-3 win, but the Pointers won the second game, 4-3, scoring the winning run in the final inning on a suicide squeeze bunt.
It’s the first trip to Fox Cities Stadium for the Pointers since the 2007 season.
It’s also the seventh time in the last eight seasons that the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) has sent a team to the finals of the Division III Baseball Championship.
