Congrats to the Michigan Softball team for punching their ticket to the Softball College World Series. The fifth-seeded Wolverines beat Baylor 8-1 and 7-1 in the Super Regional (best two-out-of-three series). This is our first trip back to the Women's College World Series since the 2005 National Championship season. It was an important win for the program, because ensured that every player who has come through the Michigan softball program since 1992 will have reached at least one College World series.
Sophomore first baseman Dorian Shaw provided all the offense we needed in Game One. She tied a school record with 3 HRs. In Game Two, Sophomore Jordan Taylor struck out 13 Bears clinching the Super Regional win.
Our first game is scheduled for Thursday against Alabama. We will need all the offense we can deliver. Alabama’s Kelsi Dunne threw two no-hitters in their Super Regional games against Jacksonville State. Yikes.
