University of Michigan Athletic Department
The University of Michigan has a rich and storied athletics tradition. Intercollegiate competition officially began in 1865-66 when the baseball team won its first three contests it played that season. In 1879, football started its storied tradition. Women's athletics established formal varsity sports in 1973-74 with U-M fielding basketball, field hockey, swimming and diving, tennis and volleyball teams. Men's soccer and women's water polo were added as varsity sports in 2000-01. Michigan athletic teams have claimed 52 national championships in 12 sports over the years, beginning with football's 1901 national title. Since then, Wolverine dynasties have developed in football, men's swimming and diving and ice hockey. In fact, no other NCAA Division I program boasts more national titles in hockey or men's swimming and diving than the Wolverines. In 2005, Michigan softball captured the nation's attention, winning its first Women's College World Series and becoming the first school east of the Mississippi to do so.
