ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- They rolled along on the bus that day in early March, yet another day as part of an elongated road trip that has become tradition for Michigan softball.

This ride through Orlando, Fla., though, was different. Senior infielder Amanda Chidester had concerns. A two-time captain of the Wolverines, she used the time on the bus to call a players-only meeting where she implored her team to come together.

It was early in the season still, three weeks away from a Big Ten conference game, but Michigan was coming off a 3-3 stretch and things needed to be adjusted. She called the meeting to have the young team she was surrounded by understand they needed to believe in each other as much as themselves. And they needed to have fun.
