Junior attacker Caitlin Muir scored two goals in under a minute against Jacksonville.

The first game of the season won’t make or break a team’s year. What it does do though, is set the tone and instill confidence in the players for the coming months.

Sophomore attackman Bryce Clay should be part of a potent offense this season for Michigan.

Alongside Bonomi, who recorded one other goal and one assist on Saturday, fellow freshmen attackman Josh Zawada and defenseman Dylan Gardner, who both found the back of the net twice, had impressive debuts as the Wolverines (1-0) defeated the Vikings (0-1), 16-9, in their season opener.

Freshman Josh Zawata had three assists and two goals in his Michigan debut.

And considering how injury-prone the team was last season, being able to rely on younger players that have the ability to step up and perform will be important for Michigan. Veteran Wolverines have now seen they can trust the freshmen to hold their ground at a high level.

The Michigan women's lacrosse team is returning most of its offensive production in 2020 campaign

After a 2019 campaign that saw a shattered record in the win column and first NCAA Tournament bid, the Michigan women’s lacrosse team is approaching 2020 with the ambition to build on what they did last year.

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.

Senior midfielder Chandler Kirby scored four goals in Michigan's 9-8 exhibition win over Notre Dame.

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.

Some college sports teams are toxic and self-destructive, overemphasizing individual success and accolades.
But some are imbued with camaraderie, support and an overwhelming sense of pride. These teams value synergy and build one another up.
Michigan men’s lacrosse is among the latter.

The Michigan women's lacrosse team lost to Denver, 9-5, on Sunday.

After the final buzzer, the Denver bench sprinted onto the field, racing to mob each other, running and jumping and laughing. On the other end, the Michigan players walked slowly, taking their good sweet time to form a huddle of their own.

Michigan women's lacrosse coach Hannah Nielsen led the Wolverines to their first ever NCAA Tournament.

Adriana Pendino could do nothing but let her emotions take control.

Junior midfielder Molly Garrett had a hat trick in Michigan's first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance and win.
