Michigan softball will open the 2016 campaign with the same ranking they finished last year’s season with.
The Wolverines earned the No. 2 spot in the USA TODAY/NFCA Division 1 Softball Coaches Poll following their runner-up finish in the 2015 Women’s College World Series championship.
Michigan finished 60-8 overall, losing to Florida, 4-1, in game three of the final series.
The Gators have earned the top preseason ranking, followed by LSU, Auburn and Alabama to round out the top five.
