NCAA Lacrosse: Michigan Women’s Lacrosse “Team One” Fall Ball Video Filmed By Freshman Middie Regan Anderson (St. Margaret’s, CA)

Michigan Women's Lacrosse BannerThroughout the Michigan women’s lacrosse team’s inaugural fall season, the squad gained valuable experience on and off the field, began to build the program’s foundation and got acquainted with each of the 28 different personalities that make up Team One.

Knowing that being a part of the first women’s lacrosse team at the University of Michigan is a special privilege and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, freshman Regan Anderson (Dana Point, Calif./St. Margaret’s Episcopal School) wanted each memory created by Team One to be proximately documented. A student in U-M’s School of Art and Design, Anderson enjoys doing photography and videography in her spare time. Preferring to be behind the camera instead of in front of it, Anderson spent the fall doing just that — capturing countless Team One memories that her and her teammates will be able watch for years to come. Following the fall season, Anderson compiled some of her favorite moments into a special video for her team titled — Team One. One Team.

Anderson also wrote a blog about capturing the essence of Team One on camera:

My goal with this video was to document the “behind-the-scenes” of Michigan women’s lacrosse. Over the next four years, our class has the task of creating traditions and determining what we want the culture of this program to be. There was no doubt in anyone’s mind that we were going to work hard every day on the field, but what people didn’t know is how dynamic our team would be off the field.

Over the several weeks of fall, we learned an exponential amount about our teammates. Kim (Coughlan) for instance loves to be the center of attention. Tess (Korten) laughs at almost anything, except the Navy SEALS because “that’s not funny”. As far as I’m concerned, I won the pumpkin carving competition and being an art major may or may not have given me a leg up. Kathy Quigley is the living version of Candace from Phineas and Ferb, and Jess Angerman has an obsession with sloths that might even rival coach Ancarrow’s obsession with cats. Kelly Schlansker, no matter how hard she tries, might not ever be able to say the word ‘breakfast’. And possibly the most valuable thing we’ve learned is how to interpret Coach U’s plays on the whiteboard after she’s erased and redrawn them over again multiple times.

There is still a lot that this video doesn’t capture in just one minute and thirty seconds, like all of the “Go Blue’s!” we got from strangers walking through the airport as a team in our matching sweat suits, or our rendition of “Say My Name” that we belted out in the back of the bus at midnight as we drove through the middle of nowhere on our way to Louisville. Lastly, this video definitely doesn’t capture all of the stolen cookie incidents that occurred because according to coach Valore cheese isn’t allowed and cookies definitely aren’t.
