I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
I know there is another important game this afternoon and later this evening, but I want to get this score in before the other games starts.
The Michigan Softball team won yet another game by defeating a ranked Louisville Cardinal team 4-0. This win bumped their record to 23-0.
Jordan Taylor was on the rubber today and pitched a wonderful game. She allowed 0 ER on 7 hits (only 1 was for extra bases). She walked 1 while striking out 8
Bree Evans scored the first Wolverine run in the top of the 4th inning. She led off the inning with a triple off the wall in right-center field. Colie Sappingfield drove her in with a single.
The Wolverines broke it open in the top of the 7th. Caitlan Blanchard lead off the inning with a triple off the wall in left center. Doyle popped out to 1B. Amy Knapp drew a walk and stole second. Bree Evans hit a single to CF, scoring Blanchard. A throwing error allow the speedy Evans to advance to second. Colie Sappingfield popped out to 3rd for the second out. Dorian Shaw hit a single to center scoring both runs. Amanda Chidester popped out to SS to end the inning.
Louisville could not get anything going in the bottom of the 7th let alone the entire game. The did have something going in the 4th but JT settled down and worked herself out of a jam.
Game time temperature was 65 degrees under a partly cloudy sky.
BTW; Jr. SS Stephanie Kirkpatrick is out for the year following knee surgery the other day. Amy Knapp has stepped up to the challenge and has done quite well. (http://michigandaily.com/sports/knapp-make-shortstop-position-her-own-se...)
The team plays again right after the first game but I will be watching the MBB game so I will try to update the second game later.
Its great to be a Michigan Wolverine.....Go Blue
So, I know this is way off topic, but my best friends little brother is the top 50 yd freestyle swimmer in the state of Michigan and is the most respectable kid I've ever met, holding 3.8 GPA . His coach has done no promotion for his times this season and the state meet is tomorrow. I will be visiting the the state meet tomorrow, for the first in my life and am wondering from the swimmig die hards how swimming recruiting works and what this kid need to do to be recruited? Will he be recruited after his state times, how does this work? . All of his times would have been top 7 in Michigan meets last year. Any insight on swimming recruiting or what needs to be done for this kid to get some recognition would be appreciated....
I dont mean to name drop but... Go Nate!
