The 2019 edition of the WIAC Tournament marked the first time that both Stout and Platteville qualified for the event in the same season since it's inception in 1998.

This was Stout's fourth time making the WIAC Tournament (1999, 2007, and 2014) and after going 0-2 yesterday, the Blue Devils are now 1-7 all time.

Platteville made their third trip to the WIAC Tournament (2005 and 2010) and doubled their All-Time victory total with the 5-2 victory over Stout on Friday.  The Pioneers are now 2-6 all time in the WIAC Tournament after being eliminated by La Crosse today.

The 2019 edition also marked the first time that Stevens Point failed to qualify for the event.  The Pointers had been the only school to qualify for every WIAC Tournament entering the 2019 season.

Whitewater splits a pair of games today to earn the 2019 WIAC Tournament Championship.  One would like to think that a 34-10 record would be enough to earn the Warhawks a Pool B bid, but even if they don't, I believe they are in decent shape for a Pool C bid.

As far as La Crosse, I really hope they earn a Pool C bid.  At 28-15, the record may not look great, but when you look at who some of their wins have come against, I believe they have a decent argument.  Besides a 3-4 record against Whitewater, the Eagles also have a win over Concordia-Chicago.  Ironically, a loss by Concordia-Chicago tomorrow in the NACC Tournament Championship would reduce the Eagles odds, as Concordia-Chicago would be a "lock" for a Pool C berth.

Here's to both Whitewater and La Crosse getting to continue their season next weekend once the bids are announced on Monday!!!

IMO it looks better than Baldwin-Wallace's 25-15.

Any chance that St. Thomas lands in the WIAC? Would be an attractive fit for the conference.
Baseball is not a game that builds character, it is a game that reveals it.

I think the whole situation stinks, but the WIAC would just get stronger in every sport by adding UST.  Travel wouldn't really be increased and I think it would benefit everyone involved.

It would take the WIAC out of Pool B.

Nevermind, that was Finlandia's role.

Or will be, after Finlandia sticks for two years. But if I'm the WIAC, I want insurance against that, or Finlandia closing, or dropping baseball -- I think none of that is completely outlandish.

If UST becomes a full member of the WIAC for 2021-22, I would have a hard time prohibiting UST from not being a full contributing member of the WIAC from day 1 (and not an affiliate)... and waive any "provisional" restrictions on the conference.
