Toledo comes to town
in matchup of pitchers
BY JONATHAN SAMNICK
In today's softball action at the Varsity Diamond, Michigan takes on the
University of Toledo in a doubleheader. Both teams are coming off sweeps
in yesterday's games.
While Michigan swept the University of Detroit, Toledo took two from
Bowling Green 7-2 and 4-0. The Rockets come into today's having won 11
out of their last 12 against Mid-American Conference teams.
Toledo is led by sophomore centerfielder Leigh Ross. She's hitting .412
while both leading her team and the conference. Their other top hitter is
frosh Lydia Keresztesi, who is hitting .337 while holding down the
Keresztesi is one of five rookies to compete this year. "Our freshman as
of late have been performing as if they've been playing at their positions
forever," Toledo coach Sheryl Sprangel said.
The Rockets are 22-15 overall and are in first place in the MAC with a
14-4 record. Michigan is 28-12 and ranked second in their region, while
Toledo is ranked fourth.
The Wolverines are anchored by the strong pitching of sophomore Andrea
Nelson who pitched a one-hitter against the University of Detroit. Nelson is
seven wins short of overtaking Vicky Morrow, to become the winningest
Wolverine pitcher in a season.
Toledo will start frosh Christin Chadwick in today's first game. She has
66 strikeouts in 80 innings and a 0.70 ERA.
"I'm not taking anything away from them(Michigan)beating the
University of Detroit, but the University of Detroit is not a very strong
team," Sprangel said. "I think both games (today) will be competitive one-
run ball games."

as Nelson, Allard win
BY JONATHAN SAMNICK
Before the University of Detroit
came to play Michigan, the
Wolverines softball team's hitting
had been ailing. Yesterday, the
Titans proved to be just what the
doctor ordered, as Michigan swept
both games 3-0 and 6-2.
In the first game Andrea Nelson
broke a personal two game losing
streak as she threw a one-hit shutout
in the 3-0 win.
University of Detroit coach Nick
Stann was encouraged by his team's

competitive," Stann said. "To hang
in there and not get blown out. (We

schools with major, major, budget

second place standing in the Big Ten.
