Posted: Updated:
La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

UW-La Crosse baseball coach Chris Schwarz will have to make room for another trophy in the trophy case. 

Schwarz was named the American Baseball Coaches Association/Diamond Midwest Coach of the Year Tuesday. 

Schwarz guided the Eagles to a 36-16 record this past season and their first-ever trip to the NCAA Div. III World Series. 

UW-L finished national runners-up after losing to SUNY-Cortland in the finals. 

It was the program's third trip to the NCAA tournament in the last four years.

With the honor, Schwarz is now one of eight finalists to be named National Coach of the Year, which will be announced Thursday.
