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.

While the score was even for most of the contest, eventually the Wolverines pulled ahead and won with their ninth goal during the second half, defeating the Fighting Irish, 9-8. Senior midfielder and team captain Chandler Kirby was the leading scorer of the match with 4 goals.

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.

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.

Senior midfielder Decker Curran brought Michigan within a goal late in the game, but it wasn't enough to beat Rutgers.

Despite the efforts of senior midfielders Curran and Brent Noseworthy, who together contributed five of the Wolverines’ nine goals, Michigan (3-9 overall, 0-4 Big Ten) fell to Rutgers (7-6, 2-2) on Saturday in an intense, back-and-forth chess match for contention in the Big Ten Tournament.
