Freshman shines iz
two WCWS losses
By Kyle O'Neill
Daily Sports Writer
OKLAHOMA CITY - After a disappointing finish at
this weekend's Women's College World Series - back-to-
back one-run losses to Arizona State and Nebraska -
Michigan had to say goodbye to threecofits own in depart-
ing seniors Mary Conner, Kelsey Kollen and Stefanie Vlpe.
But the rest of the softball community, as well as the
nation watching ESPN, was introduced to the future of
Michigan softball - freshman pitcher Nicole Motycka.
In the Wolverines' 1-0 loss to Nebraska Saturday, Michi-
gan coach Carol Hutchins went with Motycka, the Big Ten
Freshman of the Year riding a 17-game winning streak,
instead of Big Ten Pitcher of the Year MarissaYoung.
Motycka didn't disappoint, allowing just one run and five
hits in six innings. Having her start did catch some off guard
because most WCWS teams used just one starting pitcher.
Young started in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Sun Devils.
"You know what, I had no idea what (Motycka) looked
like (entering Saturday's game)," Nebraska coach Rhonda
Revelle said. "I didn't have any tape on her. Everything I
had seen was Marissa Young and I thought (Motycka) came
out with tremendous poise. I wouldn't have guessed she was

BAMN conference to address U lawsuits

By Hiba Ghalib
For the Daily
With at least one case involving the Univer-
sity's admissions policies heading toward the
Supreme Court, members of the Coalition to
Defend Affirmative Action and Integration
and Fight for Equality By Any Means Neces-
sary are preparing for a national conference to
be held May 31 through June 2. The confer-
ence will bring students from various high
schools and colleges together to discuss possi-

bilities for furthering the "new civil rights
movement."
This will be the third such conference Uni-
versity BAMN members have held, but all
three have had the same purpose: to help lead
a national movement against racism and in
favor of affirmative action.
LSA junior and BAMN member Agnes
Aleobua said the conference aims to educate
and mobilize youth in defense of the civil
rights movement. Aleobua also said the con-
ference will attempt to organize a national

march in Washington D.C. if and when the
Supreme Court hears the two cases involving
the University's admissions policies.
"We plan to use this conference to further
organize ourselves and activists across the
nation for the tremendous task of a national
march on Washington," she said.
LSA senior Ben Royal, also a BAMN mem-
ber, said there are additional objectives to the
conference besides supporting the University
in its lawsuits. Discussion at the conference
