Field Hockey Big Ten Title

Submitted by South Bend Wolverine on November 7th, 2010 at 7:16 PM

With a goal in each half and a solid defensive performance, the Wolverines knocked off the #5 OSU Buckeyes to grab their first Big Ten Tournament Title since 2005 after finishing as co-champions with OSU in the regular season.  The Wolverines held OSU to only 4 shots, and required only one save to preserve the win.

The win gives #11 Michigan an auto-bid into the NCAA tournament.  The Wolverines now stand at 15-6 after playing one of the toughest schedules in America, including 8 matchups against top-ten opposition.  Good luck to the team in the NCAAs!

The game was in AA, right?  I saw an OSU team bus at a hotel on Carpenter Rd Friday night...now I know what sport it was.  Congrats, ladies.  If only our men's programs could follow suit.

Gratz to the Maize and Blue? I assume that field hockey fans of a sort are reading this thread - my thirteen year old daughter wants to play the game, but I can't find a team for her (we live in Akron, Ohio). Any suggestions are welcome!
