UW-Whitewater opens play in the NCAA Division-3 College Baseball World Series at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute on Friday. The Warhawks are making their 6th World Series appearance, having won it all in 2005.
In looking for its second title, the Warhawks are also trying to make history. No NCAA school has ever won all three major sports championships in the same school year. Whitewater won the football title by rolling past Mount Union in December, then capped off the college basketball season with a 2-point win over Williams College in the D-3 basketball title game.
Whitewater is just one of two schools to win football and basketball titles in the same year, but no school has ever won all three.
The Warhawks will open play at Fox Cities Stadium against Southern Maine at 7:45 pm Friday night. The rest of the schedule looks like this:
Linfield (37-7) vs. St. Thomas (37-7) 10am
Baldwin Wallace (29-18) vs. Emory (34-11) 1:15pm
Suny Cortland (35-8) vs. Salisbury (37-7) 4:30pm
Linfield is the defending NCAA Division 3 champion.
