I love how the Regionals have been seeded. There are so many opportunities for schools to proceed to Cedar Rapids with their nemeses in opposite brackets.

I like how they disbursed the conference and region foes across the brackets. Trinity and Chapman/CalLu/PP/Pacific could meet in the finals. So could Cortland and Oswego; BSC and LaGrange; or Rowan and Montclair... it just goes on.
Unless I'm misunderstanding you, that isn't the case for Whitewater and Stevens Point... I was hoping one of them would get matched up with the Webster Regional for a trip to Cedar Rapids, but instead they'd have to face each other.
And it comes to fruition, as both Whitewater and Stevens Point with their respective Game #7 to secure a pair of Regional Championships.

The conference rivals will now square off in a best-of-three Super Regional to see who the WIAC representative will be at this year's D3 College World Series...

The SUNYAC had 3 teams sent to 3 different brackets, and only Oswego has a chance to play in the Super Regional. They must beat Arcadia to get there.

Of the 12 Regions completed, how many had a Pool A team win it? I know Whitewater was a Pool C and Stevens Point was a Pool A...

Thanks Ralph!

Six Pool C (with a chance at seven) out of 16 Regional winners is probably more than I would've guessed...

Have you noticed the Super Regionals?

In every case (except Oswego at Marietta), the selection committee moved teams from west to east.

Longitude of Catholic University: -77.00
Longitude of Ithaca College: -76.48

Longitude of UWSP: -89.56
Longitude of UWW: -88.73

Shucks, I thought that I had a factoid there

BSC host Trinity(Texas) in the Super Regional in Birmingham.  Play begins at 3:30 central, weather should be perfect, finally in Alabama.  The Sun Belt and SEC tournaments have had all kids of delays in conference tournaments this week.

Stevens Point 6
Whitewater 2

End 4th Inning

Whitewater defense not doing WIAC Pitcher of the Year Westin Muir any favors... A pair of throwing errors has led to three unearned runs.

Casey Pickering has given up 9 hits through four innings, however has limited the damage thanks to a smooth 1-6-3 double play in the fourth inning. It also helps when eight out of the nine hits have been singles.

Stevens Point returns the favor with a throwing error of their own to lead off the ninth inning and Whitewater takes advantage by scoring three unearned runs off of Pointers closer Sidney Ferry to tie the game 9-9. (The Warhawks scored a pair of unearned runs off Ferry in the eighth inning as well to cut Point's lead to 9-6.)

Stevens Point will send their 3/4/5 hitters to the plate in the bottom half of the inning to try and walk it off.
