Michigan Softball Wins Share of Big 10 Title

With a 3-0 win over Penn State in State College, PA today #6 ranked Michigan improves to 48-5 and will be the co-Big 10 Champions along with Northwestern. The #11 ranked Wildcats defeated Michigan State 6-1 and because they won a coin flip last week, the Wildcats will host the Big 10 Tournament May 8-10th in Evanston, IL.

Dorian Shaw and Sam Findlay homered for Michigan as all of their runs scored in the series against Penn State were via the home run. Findlay's homer was her 21st of the season which ties her own single season record that she set her freshman year in 2005 when they won the national title. Not that I'm suggesting anything....

Michigan will be in action Tuesday at 7pm when team USA comes to town led by Jennie Finch and Cat Osterman. Be sure to head down to Alumni Field to check it out in person or listen live on the WCBN Sports Stream.
