Warhawks Capture Final WCBC Conference Title

Warhawks Capture Final WCBC Conference Title

This past weekend, the UW Whitewater Warhawks captured their third Wisconsin Collegiate Bowling Conference (WCBC) Conference Championship in 5 years.  The team did so in convincing fashion.  During WCBC 4, the team won by 769 pins over UW Milwaukee.  They also earned the number 1 seed by amassing a record of 40-4 over the four conference tournaments.  Seniors Nick Kruml and Jordan Hastings finished 1st and 2nd individually in the tournament by averaging 236 and 229 respectively.

During the opening round of the bracket, the Warhawks faced off with the #8 seed, UW Platteville.  The Warhawks snuck past Platteville with scores of 233-163, 146-185 and 159-157 to advance to the semi-finals.  During round 2, the Warhawks faced off with #4 seed, UW Stout.    This match wasn't as close as the opening round as the Warhawks ended the match in two games with scores of 225-161 and 238-198.  Then in the championship round, the Warhawks faced off with #2 seed and conference rival Minnesota State University Mankato.  Despite the match moving to a best 3 out of 5 (instead of 2 out of 3), the Warhawks didn't give the Mavericks a chance to gain any momentum avenging their opening round loss last season.  The Warhawks won in three straight with scores of 198-167, 189-146 and 229-176.  

Also this weekend, the WCBC named their five member All Conference Team.  The Warhawks earned four of the five spots.  Senior Nick Kruml earned the most points to earn his third consecutive All Conference Team.  Other Warhawks making the All Conference Team included Seniors Dan Reinke and Bobby Phillips as well as Junior Zach Woelfel!  

This was the final season for the Wisconsin Collegiate Bowling Conference.  With more teams joining our conference from outside of Wisconsin, the conference decided to change their name for next season.  The new conference name will be the Great Lakes Collegiate Conference.  The Warhawks look to continue their dominating performances under the new GLCC name!
