Michigan ' s best Second-place finish highest ever for school IN A FOUR-GAME SERIES April 5-6 of last year, the Michigan women ' s softball team won three games against Big Ten champion Northwestern, opening the con- ference schedule. The rest of the season, the Wolverines didn ' t fare as well, finishing with a 16-8 Big Ten mark and second place. The second-place finish was, however, the highest a Michigan soft- ball team has ever reached. In that opening series, Big Ten MVP Lisa Ishikawa no-hit the Wolverines, 4-0, in the first game. The Wolverines countered by beating Ishikawa 1-0 in the second game of the double-header. Standout pitcher Vicki Morrow held the Wildcats to five hits and also scored the winning run in the 12th inning. Michigan swept the double-header the next day, 6-2 and 2-1. Morrow was the winning pitcher in both games, and defeated Ishikawa in the second game. Ishikawa, 13-3 with a 0.30 earned run average in the conference, gave up just five hits in the three games she pitched against the Wolverines, but lost twice. " We were in the drivers seat. Our goal at that time was to win the con- ference, " said coach Carol Hutchins. " Basically, we had a shot at it until the last weekend. We just didn ' t play consistently against our other opponents. " Northwestern went on to finish sixth out of eight teams in the College World Series. Shortstop Lisa Panetta made the All-Big Ten first team for Michigan. She was third in the conference in hitting with a .369 batting average. She hit .367 overall and set school records with 11 triples and 41 runs scored. Panetta, Mena Reyman and Mary Bitkowski are the top seniors that graduated last spring. Bitkowski, a second baseman, and Reyman (first base) both were all-conference Academic Team members. Vicki Morrow and Alicia Seegert were the team ' s other stars last season. Morrow was named to the All-Big Ten second team as a pitcher, winning 12 of 15 decisions in the conference with a 0.96 ERA. She was 15-5, 1.08 ERA overall. Starting as the designated hitter when not pitch- ing, Morrow hit .3 1 2 in 42 games. Seegert, who played both third base and catcher, hit .337 in conference games. Last year, she won the batting title with a .4 1 8 average. Going into this spring, the Wolverines have to fill holes at the three infield positions and the out- field position vacated by the graduated Linda Allen. Top recruit Pam Wright, a speedy left-hander, could fill the outfield spot im- mediately, said Hutchins. Freshman Mary Ann Daveria from Chicago might see considerable time at shortstop. " Overall, it ' s a better team than last year ' s, " said Hutchins. " It just doesn ' t have quite as much experience. " There are going to be a lot of freshmen in important roles. We ' re looking for an experienced player to lead the way. We have a good, ex- perienced pitching staff a really balanced team. We still have a shot at (the Big Ten title). " JIM GINDIN Bridget Ventori completes a force play. A cold game day. 120 MICHIGAN ENSIAN
