Michigan coach Carol Hutchins helped start the Michigan Softball Academy in 2010 to raise money to fight against breast cancer.

In its eight-year existence, the program has raised over $700,000, according to Hutchins, with hopes of surpassing $1 million soon.

With a home run on Tuesday, senior third baseman Lindsay Montemarano is batting .500 over her last nine starts after hitting just .226 before that stretch.

Led by three home runs, the Wolverines completed a perfect regular-season home record with the run-rule victory.

A slew of strong performances has proven to be a good problem for Michigan coach Carol Hutchins when determining lineups.

Against the Broncos, Hutchins will focus on finding a batting order that fosters consistency for the postseason both Tuesday and this weekend.

Coach Carol Hutchins has been impressed with the boost freshman infielder Madison Uden has given the Wolverines' offense.

Uden has provided a necessary boost to a previously lethargic offense. In the five games she has started, the team has averaged seven runs per game and has won all five, while Uden is hitting .333 with 5 RBIs.

Junior first baseman Tera Blanco led the Wolverines with her fifth and sixth home runs of the season.

Powered by Tera Blanco's two home runs, Michigan cruised to a run-rule victory in its last regular-season home game.

Sophomore second baseman Faith Canfield had one of four Michigan home runs in its doubleheader against Indiana.

Michigan frequently has had to rely on small-ball tactics this season, but got most of its offense from the long ball in Friday's doubleheader.

Infielder Lindsay Montemarano is one of four Wolverines who will play their final regular season home series this weekend.

The group of Kelly Christner, Megan Betsa, Lindsey Monterano and Abby Ramirez will go down fondly in Michigan's history books, but they have yet to write their final chapter.

Exactly 39 years after the first complaint was filed, Hutchins is in the midst of her 33rd year as the head coach of the Michigan softball team, a pioneer for female athlete’s rights and the greatest collegiate softball coach of all time.

Senior pitcher Megan Betsa, who has the third most strikeouts in program history, was drafted 7th by the Akron Racers in Monday's NPF draft.

The two seniors became the 14th and 15th Wolverines in program history to be drafted to the NPF.

Senior pitcher Megan Betsa finally got some run support on Sunday after losing a 1-0, 11-inning heartbreaker on Friday.

After losing 1-0 in 11 innings on Friday, Michigan's offense orchestrated a monumental turn around, routing the Badgers with consecutive run-rule wins on Saturday and Sunday.
