About Warhawk Softball
The Warhawk softball team is proud of the winning tradition that has become a habit at UW-Whitewater. Over the years, the Warhawks have won many WIAC Championships, including back to back titles in 2008 & 2009, and have appeared in the NCAA tournament numerous times. In 2011, the Warhawks compiled an overall record of 28-12 and received their third NCAA post season bid in the past four years. In 2008, the Warhawk team finished the season as the NCAA Divison III National Runner Up. The 2012 season should prove to be another successful year for the Warhawks. Through our winter clinics, we provide an opportunity for all student athletes to become part of a successful and winning tradition.
All sessions will take place in the Kachel Fieldhouse, which features four batting cages and over 300 feet of throwing space available for instruction.
