Michigan pitcher Haylie Wagner, a former three-time All-County selection from El Modena High, will be providing OCVarsity with a daily blog throughout the NCAA softball championships and hopefully into the College World Series.
Hi Everyone! My name is Haylie Wagner and I play softball at the University of Michigan. I am from the City of Orange and a proud El Modena Alumni! Woohoo! Go Vanguards!
Every year my team and I always have the same goal; win a National Championship in Oklahoma City, and we are on the road to just that. I am going to give you an inside look on Michigan Softball and keep you updated through the tournament on all the fun and action we have! I hope you enjoy it!
This past weekend we came together as a team and ended up beating Cal to be Regional Champs, which is the first step to OKC. Now if you watched, you all saw the action on the field but you don’t know what goes on behind the scenes between games and game days. Before the tournament began Thursday night our coaches took us out to dinner and then we had an ice cream and movie night with the team and coaches. We watched Cinderella Man and everyone was really inspired by the movie. We have all come to realize that a team and being able to win games all comes from within and doing everything you can to fight and win no matter what the obstacles are.
Now we are onto the next chapter, Super Regionals, and I am blessed to be able to say that Michigan Softball is 1 of 16 teams left to practice Tuesday afternoon! Can’t wait to tell you more tomorrow! I hope everyone has a wonderful day and GO BLUE!
