The Wisconsin softball team wins its Big Ten Tournament opener with a 3-0 shutout of Iowa Thursday night at Ann Arbor, Michigan. Freshman Kaitlyn Menz tossed a three hitter for Wisconsin, striking out six — while Shayla Starkenburg took the loss for Iowa, giving three runs on seven hits in her six inning complete game. Wisconsin’s Brooke Wyderski had the only extra base hit of the contest with a double, and she went two for three and scored once. Iowa ends its season at 19-32, while the Badgers improved to 33-14 and will play third seeded Ohio State in today’s (Friday’s) second round.
