Sophomore catcher Lauren

Through the first five innings,
sophomore pitcher Sara Driesegna
was business as usual. The right-
hander induced 12 ground balls
and scattered three hits before
unraveling in the sixth inning.
"She's put this team on
her shoulders so many times,
throughout the preseason,
the early season and in the big
games," Hutchins said. "When
she didn't have her best moments,
she always came back really
tough. She's a tough kid, a tough
pitcher and she's only going to get
better and better. But she's a large
reason why we're here."
But behind Driesenga, Michigan
was unable to connect against
Washington pitcher Bryanna
Walker, who struck out four
through as many innings. Unlike
her opponent, Walker was able to
retire the Wolverines in the air.
Walker obtained five pop-outs in

her first four innings while yielding
a single hit to Crummey in the third.
In fact, the Wolverines' first
runner in scoring position came
with two outs in the fifth inning
when freshman shortstop Sierra
Lawrence - who reached on a
fielder's choice - stole second base.
"(Walker) did a great job
pitching," Romero said. "It didn't
fall in our favor. She did a good
job mixing up speeds. She's one
of the slowest pitchers we saw, so
we just had to adjust."
After scattering three hits
through the first five innings,
pitching to contact caught up with
Driesenga. The drop-ball pitcher
allowed four hits in the frame en
route to all four earned runs.
"The game plan was the same,"
Driesenga said. "Just go right at
them and trust the defense, trust
myself and trust the movement on
my pitches. I mean, there is a lot."
Despite the loss, this Michigan
team - including its departing
seniors - will remember this
season fondly. This year's team
continued the tradition of
sending every recruiting class
to the WCWS at least once since
Hutchins took over.
"Obviously, we didn't
accomplish our full goal, but I
mean, I couldn't ask to be with a
better group of girls," said senior
second baseman Ashley Lane.
"Yeah, we fought. We fought this
entire year in this tournament.
I'm happy. I'm happy with what
we did. My emotions? They're
all over the place, but just mostly
because I just don't want to be
done. I just don't want to be done
playing this sport with these girls
next to me with this coach."
Added Hutchins: "They'll
remember that they committed
to all the values of this program,
and they committed to Michigan,
and they have sacrificed a lot of
their own personal things to be a
part of this great team. Those are
the lessons that take them to the
next level in their life. They're a
part of something bigger than
themselves, and they just do a
fantastic job of it."
The cast of Jordan Vogt-Roberts's film includes accomplished stand-up comics, TV actors and many new faces.
1Ki gs of Summei
said. "But life is a spectrum; it
has high highs and low lows. 'The
Kings of Summer' is funny but also
really heartbreaking. One of the
things I was really interested in
was if I could take lyrical impres-
sionism and ethereal elements of a
Terrence Malick movie and mash
that straight up with crazy weird
comedy. I think those visual com-
ponents are what people will real-
ly respond to."
Vogt-Roberts described how
the meshing of comedy and drama
allows the message of the film
to reach the audience at a much
deeper level than simply focusing
on one genre.
"By the time Joe (Nick Rob-
inson, TV's "Melissa & Joey") is
gutting a rabbit, or he's heartbro-
ken, you can ping-pong between
emotions, and the audience knows
that it's okay to laugh in these
heavy moments without taking
away from the dramatic tension of
the plot," Vogt-Roberts said. "It's
really easy to cross the line where
they're laughing in the wrong way,
soit's about guiding them in a way
so that the fact that they're laugh-
ing makes those moments more
cBs FILMS powerful."
He cited other films like "Sil-
ver Linings Playbook" and "Annie
Hall" that took risks and played
with conventions to set them-
selves apart from other films
based on the same archetypal plot.
Vogt-Roberts had the same inten-
C tions when he approached "The
Kings of Summer."
"You've already seen coming-
of-age stories and variations of
want the these characters and this set-up
one am I before," he said. "So, I felt this

"Orson Welles made 'Citizen

-Roberts you hear, 'So and so's first movie
is a masterpiece,' " Vogt-Roberts
said. "There's naturally a heavy
weight around that."
But all he wanted was to ensure
that the eventual final cut of "The
Kings of Summer" represented
his, and the cast and crew's, best
work thus far.
"It's about taking risks and bet-
ting on yourself and your team
around you; all you can do is just
jump off the cliff," Vogt-Roberts
said. "I said to my DP (Director of
Photography) before we started
filming, 'Every element of this
movie needs to be better - miles
better - than any single thing that
we've done before. Either we're
going to swing for the fences right
now, or let's go home. I don't want
to bunt and get on first base."'
