U-M's men's team is also headed to the NCAA after the Big Ten championship.

Eastern's coach,Katie Minasola, is really proud of her winning squad.

"First time in four years that we've made it as a team. Big feat there for us to accomplish after coming off the MAC championship title and just coming into the NCAA regional tournament. Really excited for that."
