d "This has just been a dream
g season, especially for my senior
n class, who has, from day one,
k said they were going to get to
m Oklahoma and who have done
s everything I've asked them to
e, do," Hutchinssaid to reporters
ra on Wednesday in Oklahoma
s City. "We are extremely proud
g of our kids. They fought tl'rough
s' a very tough regional and super
n regional."
r Prior to the flight, the
11 Wolverines received some advice
e from current assistant coaches
. and former Michigan players in
e Amanda Chidester and Nikki
t Nemitz. Members of the lsat team
y to play in the WCWS in 2009,
r Michigan defeated Alabama
o before losing to Florida and
e Georgia. As always, the message
was to play one game at a time.
"The one thing they've been
telling me is to soak it all in,
embrace it, and just play in the
moment," Lane said. "Don't get
caught up in everything that's
going on around it. It's just a
game, nothing has changed. Just
go out there and have fun."
And like Lane, none of her
teammates have gotten closer
to the WCWS than their own
"It's everyone's dream," said
sophomore catcher Lauren
Sweet. "I've been watching it on
TV my whole life and I just can't
even believe that I'm going to get
the chance tobe there."
Added junior first baseman
Caitlin Blanchard: "We were
talking about it this morning.
We've never been there before
so we don't even know what to
expect. It's really exciting."
Thursday night will be a
battle between two experienced
coaches at the helm of two
strong programs. This year
marks Hutchin's 10th trip to the
WCWS in her 27-year tenure
at Michigan, including one
national championship in 2005.
Meanwhile, in 19 years as head
coach, Oklahoma coach Patty
Gasso has led her team to seven
WCWS appearances, including a
national championship in 2000.
While the Sooners pose the
biggest threat on day one, they
also boast a lineup that resembles
that of the Wolverines. A young

weekend - like its counterpart
in Michigan, who also has a
young team. The Wolverines will
have to stop sophomore infielder

the country this season.
As the top-ranked team in the
field of eight, Oklahoma boasts
the nation's strongest pitching

has been dynamite. The Sooners

third in the nation - compared

behind at .330.
Hutchins plans to take her
team to cheer on fellow Big Ten
representative No. 8 Nebraska
before taking the field on
Thursday night. She hopes her
young players will get a sense of

Alum files
suit after 'U'
denied FOIA
Request aimed to
obtain external audit
of Jenson case
Daily StaffReporter
The University receives over
500 Freedom of Information Act
requests each year, including sev-
eral from The Michigan Daily.
One request wasfrom 2002 alum
David Boyle in an attempt to obtain
the external audit conducted in the
fallout from the Stephen Jenson
case - in which University officials
waited six months to report that a
medieal resident was in possession
of chldpornography
Boyle was denied the FOIA
on the basis that the informa-
tion contained in the audit - con-
ducted by the law firm Latham &
Watkins - was protected under
attorney-client privilege. The
Michigan Daily, which had also
filed a FOIA request, was denied
on similar grounds.
After being denied the FOIA,
Boyle has filed alawsuitagainstthe
University challenging its claim
that the external audit is privileged
The external audit was pre-
sented to the University's Board
of Regents and they summarized
their findings in a memo released
to the public.

$2.2 million project
will provide energy
for northern A2
The installation of more solar
panels on North Campus is a
continuation of the University's
work to maximize the use of
environmental efficiency, the
only type of "going green" we
ever want to see in Ann Arbor.
The new panels will be locat-
ed on Fuller Road between
Bonisteel Boulevard and Beal
Avenue, according to a press
release. These panels will add to
the $2.2 million panels installed
on North Campus in 2012 on

Plymouth Road, which gener-
ated co-troversy that stemmed
from a lack of communication
between the University and the
Ann Arbor community.
They are part of a partner-
ship between the University
and DTE Energy, as part of its
SolarCurrents program, who is
funding the $1.5 million proj-
ect. The University will receive
$6,000 from DTE annually for
the next twenty years to cover
costs stemming from site main-
The panels are expected to
produce approximately 240
kilowatts of solar power per
week. However this project is
not considered part of the Uni-
versity's goal for lowered emis-
sions by 2025 since all power
will be directed into the DTE

grid for commercial use by resi-
dents in northern Ann Arbor.
DTE is also placing kiosks on
North Campus, including one
in the Duderstadt Center, that
provide information in real time
about the energy generated by
the panels. Engineering courses
may incorporate data from these
panels in the future.
Andrew Berki, manager of the
University's Office of Campus
Sustainability, said the project
offers opportunity for the Uni-
versity in multiple areas.
"It's really a benefit in that it's
helping climate change from an
energy generation standpoint,"
Berki said, "But it's also further-
ing what we do here at the Uni-
versity from an education and
research perspective."
