Last Year at the Windy City Collegiate
With top-10 finishes from Min Yean Tan, Ashley Bauer and Milena Savich, U-M captured third place with a 902 total at the Windy City Collegiate Classic at the Evanston Golf Club in Evanston, Ill. After completing day one in second with a first-round total of 300 and a second-round total of 299, U-M posted a 303 in the final round to post its second top-three team finish of the season. Tan led U-M for the first time this season with a career-best 221 event tally. Bauer posted her second top-10 finish of the season, tying for ninth, while Savich, who also tied for ninth, had a career event setting bests for single round (72) and 54-hole tournament (224).

Longevity Continues
After her start at the Lady Northern Invitational, Ashley Bauer has yet to miss a tournament in her career, playing in 38 straight events. Bauer is one of two Wolverines with consecutive-event streaks along with Min Yean Tan, who has played in 26 straight events in her three seasons.

Model of Consistency
Ashley Bauer, who has never missed a U-M event, continues to be the 'model of consistency' for the Wolverines. Her current career average of 76.29 is the best for any golfer in U-M history. In 38 career events, she has posted 22 top-20 finishes with 14 in the top 10 and seven in the top five. Bauer won her first collegiate event last season at 2008 Wolverine Invitational. After her tie for 11th at the Lady Northern Invitational, Ashley Bauer has now finished as the top Wolverine in 21 of her 38 career events. The top finish in Madison, Wis., gave her seven straight event finishes as the top Wolverine.

Chalk Up Another School Record
Ashley Bauer's second round four-under 68 at the Mary Fossum Invitational not only ties her career-best, but it also helps her tie her own U-M single-round record, which she shares with four other Wolverines. In total, there are five players in U-M's "68" Club -- Bauer, Kim Benedict, Laura Olin, Amy Schmucker and LeAnna Wicks. Bauer is the only Wolverine to have reached the record round twice in her career. Bauer also holds, or shares, the U-M record for 18-, 36- and 54-hole tournament tallies at U-M.

Following Her Sisters Lead
Ashley Bauer was not the only Wolverine to card a career-best round at the 2009 Mary Fossum Invitational, as her sister, Meagan, shot a career-best, one-under 71 in the final round. Her previous best was a 74, shot in the second round of the 2009 Mountain View Challenge (March 28-29). With her record round, Meagan set a new career best for a 54-hole tournament, tallying a 231 to top her previous best was a 233 at the 2009 Mountain View Challenge (March 28-29).

Sister Act, Part 3
During the 2007-08 season, the Wolverines had the Davis sisters, Lindsay and Katelin, on the roster. After Lindsay graduated, the sisterly act continued as Ashley Bauer welcomed her younger sister, Meagan, to the team last year. Now in 2009-10, the Bauer's added yet another sister, Shana, to give them three on the roster.

All In the Family
In addition to all three Bauer sisters on the roster, newcomer Caramia Sitompul also has a family pairing at U-M. Her brother, Alexander, is a junior with the men's program and earned All-America honorable mention honors last year after helping U-M to a national semifinalist finish.

The Maize and Blue Postseason Resume
Michigan has been represented in NCAA regional competition by the U-M team or an individual in seven of the last nine seasons, making team appearances in 2001, `02, `05, `07 and '09. Laura Olin (2004) and Amy Schmucker (2006) have made central regional appearances as individuals. In 2002, the Wolverines finished sixth at the central regional in East Lansing, Mich., to advance to their first NCAA Finals appearance, where the Maize and Blue finished 17th.

A Very Full Showcase
Michigan has 30 tournament titles in the history of the program. Of those 30 titles, 11 have been won during the last six years -- two in 2003-04, four in 2004-05, one in 2005-06, two in 2006-07, none in 2007-08 and two in 2008-09.
