The 2001 Wolverines lost the opening game of the season but responded with three consecutive shutouts to move to 3-1. A loss to UNC was followed by two more shutouts, and then a five-game winning streak. The Wolverines went 3-2 to close out the regular season at 13-4 before splitting a pair of games at the Big Ten Tournament. They entered the NCAA tournament unseeded, posting a 14-5 record but with six wins over NCAA teams, including top-seeded Old Dominion. Michigan was named a regional host for the tournament, where they upset North Carolina and rival Michigan State to advance to the semifinals at Kent, where they upset Princeton and Maryland to capture the first women’s team title in Michigan history. Catherine Foreman, who scored the overtime goal in the regional final, earned All-American honors.
