Lost in the football action of today was two BIG wins by the Michigan Field Hockey and Volleyball Teams.
First, in its first game of the NCAA Field Hockey tournament, #10 Michigan beat #7 Wake Forest in Chapel Hill, N.C. Michigan lost to Wake Forest earlier in the year 3-0 in Ann Arbor, so this is a big win. Michigan advances to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2010 and will face #2 seed North Carolina. Michigan lost to NC 2-1 in Ann Arbor earlier in the year, but that was the same weekend as the Wake Forest game, so the result certainly could flip. The semifinal and NCG are in Ann Arbor this year as well, so that certainly could be cool to see.
The Michigan volleyball team also ended a 4-game losing streak with a sweep at #14 Ohio State. Michigan had lost 6 of 7 coming in, including very close losses to OSU and Penn State at home, so this win can hopefully provide some momentum going into the final weeks and (hopefully) the NCAA tournament.
Lastly, Michigan Women's Basketball team scored a 90-62 win over Binghamton.
