The UW-Whitewater softball team needs to beat Carthage twice today to advance in the NCAA Division III tournament.

Carthage set itself as the favorite by beating the host Warhawks 2-0 on Saturday morning behind two solo homers.

Whitewater then eliminated Coe with a 4-2 win Saturday afternoon.

Whitewater (28-13) plays Carthage (28-14) at noon today at van Steenderen Field on the UW-Whitewater campus.

If Whitewater wins that game, the two teams will play again at 2:30 p.m. with the winner advancing.
