The U of M women's tennis team continued it's winning ways Friday with a 4-1 decision over #13 Georgia Tech. UM advances to 6-0 on the season, with 4 of those wins coming against ranked opposition. Saturday brings a major test for the #8 Wolverines, as they face off against top-ranked Stanford. Michigan's women's tennis team has been making it's name known on the national stage the last few years, and this is just the kind of stage we need to really demand people's attention! Let's go Blue!
The Michigan Softball team won its second game today (18FEB11) by beating Florida Atlantic 11-0 in a 5 inning Mercy Rule Victory. This raises their record to 7-0.
Stephanie Speierman was given the ball today, and gave up 3 hits while having 3Ks and 1 BB.
The offense was led by Dorian Shaw 3-4 with 1 RBi, Nicole Sappingfield 2-4 with 3 RBIs, Amanda Chidester going 2-2 with 2 RBIs, and Marley Powers with a hit and 2 RBIs. Hutch did a good job with mixing up the lineup to get some of the other girls some reps.
The Wolverines play tomorrow at 9am in Bocca Raton.
It is nice to see some of the other ladies get the bats going. This team is solid from top to bottom. The pitching combo of Taylor and Speierman has to be the best in the country. I cannot wait to see them in A2.
Michigan Softball pitcher Jordan Taylor threw a no-hitter today against Long Island University today (18FEB11). She missed a perfect game by one pitch, which led to 1 BB, spoiling the perfect game. JT finished the game facing 22 batters, striking out 13 and walking 1.
The offense was led by Sr. Dorian Shaw and So. Ashley Lane who both hit 2 home runs each. Fr Catcher Caitlan Blanchard got into the action by going 2 for 3 with a triple and an RBI. They crusied to a 6-0 win.
This win puts the Lady Wolverines at 6-0 for the season. Next up is the back end of the double header against Florida Atlantic. The Wolverines are playing in Bocca Raton at the Florida Atlantic University Classic Tournament this weekend.
This should be another great weekend. The ladies will see much better competition in this tourney as they will play a ranked UMass team. I will keep the updates coming as I have no life and preparing for Rackham Graduate School by telling myself I need to quit drinking and focus.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research recently released a study indicating that climate change could wipe out the wolverine from the lower 48 states within our lifetimes.
