UWSP win first game of NCAA Regional
Story By UWSP Athletics

WHITEWATER - Ryan Schilter stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and the score tied in the bottom of the tenth inning and smacked a walk-off single through the left side to give the UW-Stevens Point baseball team a 6-5 win over Benedictine in the first game of the NCAA Division-III Midwest Regional Wednesday afternoon.

Benedictine posted three runs in the first inning and added one more in the second inning to take an early 4-0 lead.

The Pointers got on the board in the home half of the second inning when Jimmy Coady led off with a double and scored off the bat of Riley Spetz.


Coady once again provided a scoring spark by leading off the fourth inning with a home run to bring UWSP to within 4-2.

The Pointers knotted the game with two runs in the fifth inning when Schilter hit an RBI double to score Dan Douglas who had reached on a single.

Schilter later scored on a sacrifice fly hit by Coady.

The Eagles reclaimed the lead with one run in the sixth inning, but Coady drew a two-out walk in the seventh inning, advanced to third on a single by Casey Barnes, and scored a wild pitch to tie the game 5-5.

Tyler Flood and Luke Watson combined to allow just one hit through 4.1 innings out of the bullpen to setup Schilter's heroics.

Bobby Gregorich (Plover, WI/SPASH) led off the bottom of the tenth inning with a walk and Nick Douglas followed with a free pass. A passed ball allowed Gregorich and Douglas to advance a base and Clint Rose was intentionally walked to load the bases for Schilter, whose single scored Gregorich for the win.

The Pointers will play the winner of UW-Whitewater vs. Case Western (to be played Wednesday night) on Thursday, May 16 at 6 p.m.

ONEIDA COUNTY - Prosecutors think an Oneida County Sheriff's deputy used her job to steal cash, but she could get those charges dropped if she completes a diversion agreement with the court.

Sarah Gardner, 41, also known as Sarah Welcenbach, faces two felony misconduct charges in Oneida County.

According to the criminal complaint, prosecutors believe she paid herself about $1200 from a cash box her office used for drug investigations.

The diversion agreement says Gardner must pay the money back to the Sheriff's Office and complete a six-week accounting course at Nicolet College.

If she does those things, the state can ask to dismiss the case.

Under the Republican bill, fish farms no longer need permits to discharge material into a wetland if the wetland was created for fish farming. Natural water bodies can serve as fish farms and farms wouldn't need permits to construct or enlarge artificial water bodies connected to a navigable waterway. New permit conditions will be prohibited unless needed to meet water quality standards.
