River Falls, WI (Northlands NewsCenter) - On Saturday, the Yellowjacket softball team saw its season come to an end. UWS fell to Eau Claire 6-1 in the WIAC post-season tournament. The Yellowjackets, who lost to LaCrosse on Friday, needed to win-out in the double-elimination format to win the tourney.
