Thanks for a great Homecoming!
Warhawk Pride was on full display as we revisited the decades for UW-Whitewater’s Homecoming 2022 celebration. We showcased our talent, had some friendly competition, strutted down Main and beat UW-River Falls in a game that came down to the wire and a field goal. Every day is a great day to be a Warhawk!
