WSU Goes 3-1 On The Weekend In Madison; Wins Both Augustana & Wisconsin Series
(4.19.15) - The weekend proved to be a successful showing for Winona St. as the boys claimed three much-needed victories in conference play. The Swamps started off on Saturday with the series finale make-up game with Augustana, and a solid defensive effort and one-hitter show by Ethan Simonson on the mound picked up the 3-1 win. Later that day, the boys kicked off action against the 1st-place Wisconsin Badgers. Logan Mertens had the stroke, going 3-4 with 4 RBIs on the board to carry WSU to an 8-4 victory. A couple defensive duels on Sunday were split between UW and WSU, but in the end the Swamps still took 2 of the 3 and earned the series win to move Winona State into the first place slot in the District VI West conference! Next, WSU hosts Northern Illinois at home, and if the Swamps can pull off the sweep they will be conference champions for the first time in program history!
