Yesterday we had a post highlighting the 11 FBS schools that reached the postseason in football, men’s basketball and baseball, but those 11 schools have nothing on Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater.
On December 20, Whitewater drilled Mount Union 52-14 to win the Division III football national championship with a perfect 15-0 record.
On March 22, Whitewater edged Williams College 75-73 to win the Division III national championship in men’s basketball with a 29-4 mark.
And on Tuesday, Whitewater blanked Emory University 7-0 to with the Division III baseball national championship with a 44-7 record.
Three major sports, three national championships.
The Warhawks are the first NCAA schools to accomplish the feat on any level.
“That’s what Wisconsin-Whitewater is all about. Our athletics are incredible — and people are starting to realize that. If anyone wants to win a championship — this is the place to be,” Warhawks starting pitcher Scott Plaza said.
Like a 99-yard touchdown run, it’s a record that may one day be equaled but can not be beaten. Congratulations to everyone in Whitewater on reaching the historic feat.
