Team 40 opened their season today with a 7-0 thumping of an over-matched Delaware squad. Just missing out on a run-rule win, the Wolverines got production from all up & down the order. Newcomers to the line-up Natalie Peters & Courtney Richardson both impressed. Meanwhile, Megan Betsa was absolutely dazzling in the circle, getting 15 of her 21 outs via the strike-out. Game 2 against Illinois State just now getting underway.
Season preview will be up soon - technical difficulties with the photos have it delayed at the moment.
Update: Michigan wins game 2 over Illinois State 4-2 behind a solid performance from Tera Blanco. The offense was a bit sluggish, but Courtney Richardson's 3-run homer put Michigan up by multiple runs, and Blanco made it hold up. One mistake by Blanco turned into an ISU 2-run homer, but outside of that, she did an excellent job shutting down a tough line-up.
My Daughter is a Freshman and will be leaving Mary Markley for independent living. very soon Without going into our conflict of where she should/wants to live I would like to hear your thoughts on the Pro's and Cons High Rise living vs Single Family Home life. With these projects building up ever so fast is the single family a dinosaur? I would love hear opinions from those who have lived in both dwellings or a parent like myself
On Tuesday, my 13 year old daughter fainted while performing for a class of third graders as King George. She was wearing a giant red puffy crown, the kind you used to see in the Imperial Margarine commercials. I think it broke her fall. In any event, she did hit her head on a bookcase on the way down and sustained a concussion. Today, she still has a bit of a headache and is dizzy, with sensitivity to light and sound. She's laying low, not going to school or participating in sports. Anything else I need to know? First concussion in my family.
I've got today off. Commence banging.
I'm a Mike Tirico fan and an Olympics fan, so I'm happy about this. Tirico moves into the big chair starting with the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
