And with life lessons and heartfelt memories from his grandfather draped around his No. 48 jersey, it is clear to Christian that whatever happens next, Grandpa will be with him, guiding him down his own path to Michigan glory.
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 No. 14 Michigan women’s lacrosse team (2-1) then finished the game out with a four-goal run to stave off Louisville (2-2) and take its second win of the season with a final score of 15-11. The story of the game was the Wolverines’ fast start and strong finish. They commanded the first and last ten minutes of the game, although the middle was much less impressive.
It was like the flip of a switch. For one stretch, there would be five goals from both teams in a span of two minutes. The next, there would be scoring droughts that lasted nearly twice that amount of time.
