Mbogo Mwangi guarding now-sophomore midfielder Jake Bonomi back in high school.

Transferring to Radnor Middle School, a school that was 99 percent white, Mwangi struggled with cases of subtle racism daily. People touched his hair. Curious eyes glanced over at him during his history teacher’s measly day-and-a-half lecture on racism and slavery. He was excluded from social events because his classmates feared their parents would be mad that he looked or dressed “differently.”

Josh Zawada led NCAA freshmen in points per game this year.

Due to uncontrollable circumstances, Michigan will not get the opportunity to test itself against top-ranked conference opponents like No. 6 Maryland and No. 7 Penn State. But this does not spell the end for the players on this year’s team.

The Michigan lacrosse team is looking to build on its win over Ohio State at the end of last season this year.

After a season riddled with injuries, faceoff struggles and deflating, tightly-contested losses, many teams would simply throw in the towel toward the end of the season, deeming their final games meaningless. The Michigan men’s lacrosse team could’ve been one of those teams.

But the Wolverines still needed to play Ohio State to end their 2019 campaign. Despite its 3-9 record at the time, Michigan wasn’t going to hand the Buckeyes a win.

Sophomore attackman Bryce Clay scored a goal in 10 out of 12 games as a freshman in 2019, aiding Michigan's talented attack line in his first season.
