Eyes on the ball, two team mem- bers wait anxiously as junior forward Molly Powers sends a penalty corner towards the cen- ter of the box. Powers recorded her first assist of the season dur- ing the Wolverine ' s upset vic- tory over North Carolina in the third round of the NCAA tour- nament, photo by Jon Hammer field hackev theleaders, andthe DCSt As time slowly ticked away on the Scoreboard of the Dix Stadium field in Kent, OH, the women ' s field hockey team prepared to do what no other women ' s team had done in the history of the University - bring a national championship back to Ann Arbor. The Wolverines capped an improbable title run by triumphing over the top-ranked University of Maryland Terrapins 2-0 in the title game. Each victory in the NCAA tournament came against a team ranked at least as high as the Maize and Blue; and the Wolverines defeated North Carolina, Princeton, and Maryland, all for the first time ever during its championship run. After a disappointing 3-0 loss to Ohio State in the semifinals of the Big Ten Championship, the Wolverines entered the NCAA tournament without momentum, and with the daunting task effacing the fourth-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels. However, the Wolverines torched the Tar Heels for five second half goals en route to a 5-2 victory. After the victory, sophomore forward April Fronzoni spoke confidently, " We all just came out in the second half and were on fire. We had a lot of fun and we want to carry it through until the end of the season. " Fronzoni ' s words proved prophetic, as the Wolverines tore through their next two tournament games before meeting Maryland in a rematch of the 1999 championship game. In the two previous meetings with the Terrapins, the Wolverines had lost in close, hard-fought games. However, the Wolverines, led by senior goalkeeper Maureen Tasch, would not be denied this time. The Terrapins unloaded twenty shots on Tasch, none of which found the back of the net. The shutout was Tasch, ' s school record, eighth of the season. Tasch commented on her shutout, " At his level, so late in the season, I thought it wasn ' t going to happen anymore and I was done with those. They put an awful lot of pressure on and were very skilled. " With Tasch ' s stellar goaltending, and goals by freshman Adrienne Hortillosa and sophomore Kristi Gannon, the Wolverines held on for a 2-0 victory. Four Wolverines were named to the NCAA All-Tournament team, and seven earned recognition on either the All-Big Ten Conference first or second teams.
