The Michigan women's softball team
travelled to Ohio State last weekend look-
ing to take doubleheaders on both Friday
and Saturday. Instead, it had to settle for
three shutout wins and a close loss in extra
The Wolverines had won nine of their
past ten games and had a 14-9 overall
record before entering the weekend series
with the Buckeyes. The reasons for their
success were good pitching, solid defense
and timely hitting.
The trip to Ohio State left Michigan
Coach Carol Hutchins with mixed feelings.
Seeking four wins, Hutchins was left un-
satisfied. In addition, the manner in which
they lost did not please Hutchins.
YET, THERE were many positives
that can be emphasized. First, the Wolver-
ines gave the Buckeyes their first three
home losses of the season. Second, the
weekend didn't really harm the Wolverines
conference record, which now stands at 8-2.
The reasons for Michigan's victories
this weekend were absent in the first game
on Saturday. The Wolverines, who had a
fielding percentage of .980 before the se-
ries, committed three errors. In addition,
the team left ten runners on base in its 5-4
Ohio State trailed 3-1 going into the
fifth inning before tying the score. In the
tenth inning, Michigan outfielder Beth
Mueller scored on a fielders choice by third
basewoman Jenny Allard. OSU tied the
score at four in the bottom of that inning
and proceeded to win in the eleventh in-
That one game seemed to be the excep-
tion rather than the rule for the Wolverines.
Michelle Bolster, who was the losing
pitcher on Saturday, had pitched well in the
first game of the doubleheader on Friday.
ON FRIDAY, Bolster pitched a one-
hitter, recorded seven strikeouts, and walked
one. The team produced nine runs and nine
hits for Bolster as they won handily, 9-0.
Leading the hitting barrage was Allard with
two hits and Mueller with two hits includ-
ing a three-run triple.
Andrea Nelson led the team to a second
shutout on Friday with a three-hitter. Sarah
Dyksterhouse had a three-hit, three RBI
performance, and Bonnie Tholl hit a run
scoring triple, in the Wolverines' 5-0 vic-
After the lapse on Saturday, the team
came up strong in the second game of the
doubleheader to redeem themselves. Andrea
Nelson pitched a no-hitter and the team ex-
ploded in the fifth inning for six runs to
BOTH MEN AND WOMEN DOMINATE REGATTA
Crew team cruises
By ADAM BENSON
For the last twelve years, the
Michigan men's and women's crew
teams have hosted the Classic Re-
gatta at Gallup Park. The Regatta is
designed to bring more attention to
the club, and give all team members
the opportunity to participate in a
"My friends get to see why I'm
always so busy," said Marty Crew, a
member of the victorious varsity
men's heavyweight four-person boat.
"It's nice to row at home."
Crew's boat was one of eight
Michigan boats to win races this
weekend. Other teams to win were
the men's novice four, novice
heavyweight eight, varsity
lightweight eight, novice lightweight
eight, and the women's novice four,
novice eight, and the varsity eight
Coach Tom Welch was pleased
with his team's performance, but
tried to keep the day in perspective.
"It's nice to win, but Michigan
State and Grand Valley State are not
the greatest competition in the
world," said Welch. "I'm glad that
the team had a chance to row at
home. It's fun for us to row for
Welch singled out the men's
novice lightweight eight and the
women's novice four team as
particularly strong performers.
PAM INGLIS, a senior mem-
ber of the women's varsity eight
team, felt a bit sentimental racing in
her last Regatta at Gallup Park.
"It's weird knowing that I'll never
row here for U of M again," said In-
glis. "I'm going to miss it."
Inglis noted that Saturday's strong
winds made rowing more difficult. "It
felt really strong. Considering the
wind, we rowed our best race."
Anne Carroll, also a member of
the women's varsity eight and the
team's secretary, felt her boat's win
was a "satisfying race," but she was
even more pleased with the fan
turnout for the Regatta.
"There was a lot of enthusiasm for
this, and the team did really well,"
said Carroll. "The weather was bad
early this morning, but people still
came to see the race. It's nice for
people to see us."
Besides being a great showcase for
local fans, the Regatta is an impor-
tant tune-up for larger, more presti-
gious events. Coach Welch looks
forward to entering crews in the
SIRA's in Oak Ridge, Tenn. on
April 30th, and the Dad Vail Regatta
in Philadelphia, May 12-14.
The Dad Vails will feature teams
from such national rowing powers as
Georgetown, Temple, and New
Hampshire, and is sure to provide the
team with an opportunity to see how
well they match up against Eastern
