The Michigan women’s lacrosse team claimed its first victory in program history over Johns Hopkins this weekend.

When the No. 8 Michigan women’s lacrosse team (13-0 overall, 3-0 Big Ten) took the field on Saturday afternoon, not only was it putting its perfect record on the line –– it was seeking its first win in program history against No. 18 Johns Hopkins (8-3, 1-1). And led by an offensive outburst from sophomore attacker Caitlin Muir and sophomore midfielder Maggie Kane, the Wolverines powered their way to a 16-11 victory at U-M Lacrosse Stadium.

The Michigan women's lacrosse team extended the nation's longest winning streak with a victory over Niagara.

With the help of Cullinan’s goal — in addition to goals from senior Adriana Pendino, freshman Erin Garvey, juniors Catherine Granito, Molly Garrett, Lilly Grass and Nadine Stewart and hat tricks from sophomores Erin Daly and Maggie Kane — Michigan topped Niagara (3-6), 16-5.

Adriana Pendino helped the Michigan women's lacrosse team continue its highest winning streak in program history.

The win over the Buckeyes leaves Michigan in uncharted territory in its sixth year of the program. The Wolverines have never won more than seven games in a season.

Now they’re 11-0.

Since Michigan began playing in the Big Ten in 2014, it has won just five conference games. Two of those wins have come this season, and the Wolverines aren’t content stopping there.

Alex Buckanavage had a hat-trick in Michigan's 12-9 loss to Notre Dame on Tuesday.

But it proved to be a mirage. Notre Dame’s lead grew twice and left the Wolverines with a halftime task three times as big as they expected less than a minute before.

Freshman attacker Bryce Clay had a hat trick in Michigan's 12-9 loss to Notre Dame.

Despite valiant efforts and a strong defensive presence, the Wolverines (3-4) fell to the Fighting Irish (4-2), 12-9, on Tuesday night.

Senior defenseman Nick DiCaprio was one of multiple nontraditional faceoff players used for the Michigan lacrosse team.

However, the Golden Eagles charged back ferociously, leading by as many as seven goals throughout Saturday’s game. Despite a three-goal rally in the dying moments of the fourth quarter, the Wolverines (3-3) fell to Marquette (4-3), 16-13, in their first, true road loss of the season.

Senior midfielder Brent Noseworthy set a program record for goals as Michigan beat St. John's on Saturday.

With this goal, his second of the day, Noseworthy surpassed 2017 graduate attackman Ian King to become Michigan’s all-time leading goal scorer, notching 95 goals during his career as a Wolverine thus far.

Six additional goal scorers accompanied Noseworthy to lead Michigan past the Red Storm 16-11 on Saturday. Senior midfielder Decker Curran led the way for the Wolverines with four goals, while Clay and sophomore attackman Kevin Mack each reeled in hat tricks also.

Fifth-year senior goalkeeper Tommy Heidt made 15 saves in Michigan's victory over Jacksonville on Saturday.

Down one goal with 11.8 seconds left in the game, Jacksonville midfielder Evan Tyler dodged ferociously off the wing and dished the ball off to midfielder Jack Dolan, setting up what seemed to be the perfect opportunity for a game-tying goal for the Dolphins.

But fifth-year senior goalkeeper Tommy Heidt stood his ground, warding off Dolan’s shot as time expired, icing the game for the Michigan men's lacrosse team, 11-10.

Senior Brent Noseworthy scored his 100th career point in Michigan's 17-16 double overtime loss to Drexel.

As it did in its first game of the season against Cleveland State, the Michigan men’s lacrosse team held a multiple goal lead at halftime against Drexel. And, as they did 10 days ago, the Wolverines once again failed to completely shut the door on their opponent.

Mira Shane made sure the Big Green worked for all of their goals. She had a season-high 16 saves in Sunday’s matchup, a game that saw the Wolverines come away with an 11-10 victory after a weather-induced delay, a full 60 minutes of regulation and two overtimes.
