Michigan has won three NCAA Great Lakes Regional titles in program history -- 1997, 2007 (t-1st), 2013).
Michigan ended Wisconsin's unbeaten streak at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional, as the Badgers had won the last 11 straight titles (2002-12). Michigan and Wisconsin shared the title in 2007.
Michigan has qualified for the NCAA Championships as a team in each of the last three years, securing automatic bids in each of the last two seasons.
Mason Ferlic (3rd), Mark Beams (8th), Morsi Rayyan (10th) and August Pappas (23rd) each earned All-Great Lakes Region honors for their top-25 performances. It marks the second consecutive year earning the recognition for Beams and Rayyan.
Mason Ferlic has been Michigan's top finisher in each of the four races that the varsity squad has competed in this season.
The top two teams at each of the nine regionals around the country earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships (Nov. 23), while another 13 receive at-large bids based on their regular-season and postseason performances. The full NCAA Championships field will be announced on Sunday, Nov. 17.
