Michigan Wolverines women’s soccer takes aim at national title

There have been two mottos for this season’s Michigan women’s soccer team: In pursuit, and fun and trophies.

It’s the last one that has resonated most, and while it seems simple enough, you’ll have to excuse the Wolverines if they’ve occasionally forgot to have fun.

The 2020 season, after all, was a mighty mess, in which they only played 11 matches, and saw their season shut down during the Big Ten tournament because of COVID-19.

“It was definitely a response to that,” senior midfielder Raleigh Loughman said. “Every team struggled with different things with the COVID spring, and COVID.

“We really wanted to get back to having fun. When you have fun, the trophies come.”

So far, the story checks out for Michigan (18-3-3), which is gearing up to play No. 1-ranked Florida State at 2 p.m. Friday in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals.
