Softball team drops three
Irish next up for men's tennis
by Sarah Osburn
Daily Sports Writer
Dropping three of four games
to Ohio State over thetweekend,
the Michigan softball team is in
jeopardy of reaching itsagoal -
winning the Big Ten title.
"We're all disappointed that we
lost three games," team captain
Jenny Allard said. "I feel that we
improved as the games went on,
but the breaks didn't go our way."
The Wolverines (15-19 overall,
3-5 in the Big Ten) pulled out
their only win of the series in the
12th inning of game three. Mich-
igan took an early, 3-0, lead,
which it soon lost when Ohio
State (21-14, 5-1) scored four runs
to take the lead, 5-3.
Michigan tied the game in the
sixth when Bridget Fritzpatrick
and Kari Kunnen both knocked in
runs. First-year pitcher Kelly
Forbis earned the win when Kun-
nen batted in Heather Lyke in the
top of the 12th to give Michigan a
Two of the Wolverines' three
losses also went into extra in-
nings. They lost the second game,
1-0, in 11 and the fourth, 1-0, in
nine. Forbis picked up the loss in
the second game while Allard
earned the loss in the fourth game.
"We are leaving too many run-
ners on base," Allard said. "Our
pitching and hitting have been
okay, but we just aren't coming
through when we really need to."
The Wolverines left a total of
32 runners stranded in the four

games. The Buckeyes won the
first game, 2-1, and Andrea Nelson
collected the loss.
Michigan will take on Central
Michigan today at 3:00 at Varsity
Diamond. The Wolverines have
not fared well against the Chip-
pewas this season, losing all three
"They always play us well,
Allard said. "They really gun for
Michigan. They are also always at
the top of their region.
"We are just concentrating on
playing better ball. We are playing
well, but we just need the extra
push to get the wins."
After plowing through Michigan
State last weekend, the Wolverine
men's tennis team is looking for a
greater challenge. Notre Dame is
answering the call, and will face
Michigan today at the Track &
Notre Dame took first place in
the Midwest Collegiate Conference
Championship this past weekend
and, as an independent, is considered
the biggest threat to the reigning Big
Michigan coach Brian Eisner con-
siders the Fighting Irish the second
best team in the Midwest.
"This year Notre Dame is very,
very good. Northwestern beat them,
but it was very close. They are prob-
ably the No. 2 team in our section."
Last Thursday, the Wolverines
beat Michigan State, 6-2 - a sur-
prising victory considering the loss
of David Kass, Michigan's top sin-
gles player and ranked 16th in the
country. Kass has been hampered by
a groin injury leaving him unable to
compete in singles competition. He,
however, competed in his doubles
match with partner Scott Cuppett.
With the absence of Kass, each
singles player has moved up a notch,
allowing Peter Kim to enter the
roster at sixth singles. Kim proved
valuable defeating Spartan Jason
Stanislaw, 7-5, 5-7, 6-4.
Cuppett jumped to the top sin-
gles spot while Mitch Rubenstein
moved to No. 2 singles. Both Cup-
pett and Rubenstein adjusted to their
new positions quickly, posting early
victories to propel Michigan to a 4-2
With a solid victory over Mich-
igan State without Kass in the sin-
gles lineup, Michigan has found a
confidence booster for its rookie sin-
gles players. The Wolverines started
the season with Kass being the only
returning singles player.
"Everything has been extremely
positive considering all of this. I'm
not saying we're a great team, but1
I'm not saying we're a bad team
either," Eisner said.
First-year pitcher Kelly Forbis winds up for a pitch earlier this season
against Minnesota. She earned the lone Wolverine win in the four
games Michigan played this weekend.
