UW-Whitewater will be well rested when facing Emory today for the NCAA Division 3 College World Series Championship. The Warhawks had yesterday off and will be shooting for their second World Series title, having won back in 2005.
The Warhawks are 3-0 in the double-elimination tournament and 43-7 on the season. They’ll need to win just once to claim the title. If Whitewater loses the opener, then a second Championship game would be played.
Emory comes into the game swinging a hot bat. They combined to score 25 runs on 33 hits in a pair of elimination victories over Southern Maine and St. Thomas on Monday.
The Warhawks carry a 10-game win streak into play today. Winning the championship would mean Whitewater would gain its first-ever sweep of the three major sports…football, men’s basketball and baseball, all in the same year.
