The weekend ended on a good note with the win over BC. Everyone contributed to all the wins this past weekend, this Team 37 is going to some amazing things. We have 3 very strong pitchers and if the hitting continues, we will be a team to contend with. With Sierra Lawrence hitting not one but two grandslams in two games, she is another phenomenal hitter. Haylie is back to pitching, and doing what she did her freshman year, helping the team win games. She got 3 of the 4 wins this weekend, including the win against BC and she got to hit. Everyone is a hero on this team, doing their part to get on base and score runs. Good luck next weekend ladies!

Good luck to the Michigan softball team this weekend, hopefully they can move on to the WCWS, but they have been to Supers before. Behind Haylie Wagner's pitching last year, they had to face the eventual WCWS champions, Alabama, in the super regionals away from home. I do believe if they had been at home last year, they would have been able to beat Bama and move on, but the hitting wasn't there last year as this and the team had to rely on pitching alot last year. Last year it seemed it was a given that Sara would be the go to pitcher, but things didn't work out that way, Haylie stepped into that role as a freshman and had a fantastic year, beating Michigan records and getting Freshman of the Year and Pitcher of the year, she did some amazing things. With her being hurt this year and missing 19 + games, Sara had to step up into that position and she has done an amazing job also. If Haylie had not been injured early on, this MIchigan team would have been unstoppable. Even injured, Haylie had 18 wins and only 3 losses, but she still wasn't where she should have been, compared to last season. With two healthy pitchers next year, this team will for sure win another Big 10 Championship and go very far again in playoffs. This team does not rely on one or two players, as all the media seems to say, to win games. This is a team, not a team of one or two, but a team of very dedicated girls that love the sport of softball. Every girl on the team is vital to its success, and whether they are playing or cheering from the dugout, they are all important piece of this team. Good luck girls, we believe in you! GO BLUE!

A 6th Big Ten Chamionship, 20-2 record is fantastic, I will take that any day. It wasn't what we wanted today, but have to lose some to keep you humble. When you are expected to win and don't, everyone gets the blame, starting with the pitcher. Haylie is no where near where she was last year at this time, she started the year missing games, and not able to do what she did last year,but thank goodness we have Haylie and Sara for 2 more years. Michigan did not hit today either, as they are know to do, Nebraska is not Michigan friendly at all. Forget this game, and move on the Regionals next weekend. Everyone regroups and gets their "A" game on, which I know Michigan will do.

Lets not judge Sara and Haylie so harshly. Do you not remember all the games they have pitched to victories, and all the shut outs? This is one series that was lost by Michigan softball and it wasn't all the pitchers fault. Have to have timely hitting, how many were left on base the entire weekend and we didn't capitalize? Remember pitching is what got us to the post season last year and they will do it again. Haylie pitched fantastic last year and with her being out the first 19 games this year, she isn't where she was last year. They both have what it takes to pitch this team into the post season, as long as the hitting continues.
