The UW-La Crosse baseball team is hoping to continue a nice run of success in recent years.

The Eagles have advanced to the WIAC Tournament championship game in each of the last 3 seasons.

The Eagles certainly riding high heading into it.

They've won 10 in a row.

The winner of the WIAC Tournament receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III tournament.

"We've made it part of our tradition now as we head into the post season to kind of step up our game and play a little better. We get amped up for tournament games. The last couple of years we've been pretty successful in the conference tournament. We plan to continue that," said Eagles head coach Chris Schwarz.

The action start at 1 PM Friday when UW-L takes on UW-Stevens Point.

It's a double-elimination tournament.
