This weekend's softball matchup
between Michigan and Indiana was
a battle of two evenly matched
teams. So it came as no surprise
that they split both doubleheaders
in almost identical fashions.
The first game of the series,
played on Friday, matched Michi-
gan's sophomore sensation, Andrea
Nelson, against Indiana's Teresa
Raine. Indiana struck in the first
inning on two walks and a run-
scoring double by junior Christy
In the bottom of the second,
Michigan coach Carol Hutchins
gathered her team and told them,
"She (Raine) doesn't throw very
many strikes." Indeed, Raine did
walk six, but the Wolverines went
hitless until senior Nan Payne
broke through in the fifth inning.
Swirling winds began to whip
around the Varsity Diamond as
Michigan saw few chances to score.
Their bats, however, came alive in
the sixth inning when Michigan
was able to hold off both the rain
from the clouds and the Raine on
SENIOR captain Beth Mueller
lend off the sixth with a walk and
advanced to third on a single by
Mary Ann Daviera and an error by
Indiana shortstop Jean Skarzynski.
Then on a perfect suicide squeeze
bynt by first year player Stacy
Heams, Mueller scored with Heams
safe at first.
On the next pitch Julie Cooper
singled, scoring Heams and Dav-
iera. A sacrifice fly by Bridget Fitz-
patrick accounted for the final run
in the 4-1 Michigan win.
The second game featured the
second part of Indiana's four-
woman pitching rotation, Jill
Jensen. Michigan countered with
This time, however, the Wolver-
ines could not overcome the
Hoosier bats or the bad weather.
In the sixth inning Indiana's
Christy Cammarata again provided
the first run by tripling home Jen-
sen. Then rookie Skarzynski tripled
home Cammarata, and Margie Led-
gerwood doubled home Skarzynski.
The three runs on four hits were
enough for an Indiana victory.
THE WOLVERINES were
only able to muster up three hits,
two by junior Jenny Allard. Andrea
Nelson's record dropped to 18-4.
"There is a lot of parity in the
Big Ten," Indiana coach Diane
Stephenson said. "There is no dom-
inant team, it's a very competitive
On Saturday, the Wolverines got
their first taste of spring weather
and sent Jenny Allard to the mound
to oppose Indiana's Christy Brown.
The Wolverines squandered an
early opportunity in the second
inning when Pam Dyksterhouse
was thrown out attempting to steal

lead off with a single. She then
stole second on a pitchout when
Payne was attempting to sacrifice.
AFTER fouling off five pitches
in a row, Payne finally singled to
right with Tholl advancing to third.
Allard followed with a deep
sacrifice fly which scored Tholl.
That turned out to be the only run
Michigan would need.
In the final game on Saturday,
Indiana started Roxie Rafik, their
fourth different pitcher in the series.
The Wolverines answered again
with Andrea Nelson.
Instead of actually playing the
first five innings both teams could
have saved a lot of time by
skipping to the sixth inning where,
again, all of the runs were scored.
Unfortunately for the Wolverines,
Indiana did all of the scoring.
Vicky Moor, the first base-
woman for Indiana, started it off
with a single. Jensen sacrificed her
to second and Cammarata was

injury sidelined her, doubled home

dropped Nelson's record to 18-5.

Blue softballers to
tang~le with Titans
BY JONATHAN SAMNICK
This afternoon Michigan takes on the University of Detroit in a softball
doubleheader scheduled for 3:30 at the Varsity Diamond. With two victories
Michigan could move within one victory of tying their total for all of 1988.
Michigan did not play the Titans last year, but are on a five game
winning streak against Detroit which dates back to 1984.
Sophomore Andrea Nelson, the Wolverines ace pitcher, surpassed her
career high win mark of 16 with two wins this week. She will start in at
least one game today, with junior Jenny Allard, last week's Big Ten Player-
of-the-Week, pitching in the other.
The game against the Titans will be a welcome break for the eighth-
ranked Wolverines who also play the University of Toledo on Wednesday.
After Wednesday's game against Toledo the Wolverines start a string of 10
games where they play only Big Ten opponents.
Bo Schembechler will take part in Michigan's Hit-a-Thon scheduled for
Saturday, April 29. Schembechler will go to the plate against last year's Big
Ten MVP, Michelle Bolster. Bo's sponsors will pledge x-amount of dollars
for every foot the ball travels.
