Wisconsin-Whitewater beats Benedictine twice

  he Warhawks won the first championship game 7-5 and topped the Eagles 5-2 to win.

CHICAGO -- Wisconsin-Whitewater beat Benedictine twice Sunday to advance to the NCAA Division III super regional hosted by Illinois Wesleyan on May 16-17. The Warhawks won the first championship game 7-5 and topped the Eagles 5-2 to win the regional and advance. UW-W is 35-10 this season.

Kelly McGail, named regional's most outstanding player, got the Warhawk offense going in the second game with a homer to left center. Morgan Krisch made it back-to-back jacks sending a change up over the fence in center field to give UW-W a 2-0 lead.

Benedictine cut the lead in half in their half of the inning with a round-tripper of their own.

Jo Jablonski led of the top of the fifth with a single to center. Samie Seamon homered to left center to put the Warhawks ahead 4-1. Whitewater would add a run in the top of the sixth for insurance.

The Eagles did not go quietly with a single run in the bottom of the inning but the UW-W defense held on for the win.

Bekka Houda picked up the complete game win on the mound for the Warhawks. She went the distance allowing five hits while striking out four.

In the first game of the day, it was a Samie Seamon triple that bolstered a five run sixth inning that put the game out of reach for the Warhawks.

UW-W posted 11 hits in the game including a 3-for-4 performance from McGrail with a run scored and an RBI. Seamon and Krisch each had two hits and combined for two runs and four RBI.

Kelynn Sporer picked up the win on the mound going 7.0 innings allowing six hits.
