The results from the four-day Women’s Collegiate Classic in Malibu were mixed. The Wolverines started strongly with wins in Thursday’s first round matches. Freshman Andrea Cerdan edged out No. 15 Christina Rosca of Vanderbilt in a close match, taking two of three sets by a slim margin, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5. While Cerdan stumbled in the second round — losing two consecutive sets 6-2 — the freshman’s ability to win against highly-ranked players makes her an integral part of Michigan’s program as the season goes on.

While an early spark is definitely not out of the ordinary for Michigan, anyone who watched the Wolverines at the plate in their Friday quarterfinal game would find them unrecognizable. They got just seven hits against No. 9 seed Illinois, only one of which was translated into a run.
