Seattle Seahawks’ League-High Travel Miles Continue to Rack Up With Pair of Preseason Trips

Due to their location in the upper northwest region of the contiguous United States, travel will always play a significant role for the Seahawks on a year-to-year basis. But their itinerary for the upcoming regular season is set to be even more gruelling than usual, thanks in large part to their 10,528-mile roundtrip between Seattle and Munich, Germany. 

In total, the Seahawks will travel 29,446 miles across 34 time zones. Here’s where that falls in franchise history:

  1. 2008 – 29,902
  2. 2022 – 29,446
  3. 2018 – 29,088
  4. 2007 – 29,014
  5. 2020 – 28,982
  6. 2004 – 28,860
  7. 2005 – 28,618
  8. 2012 – 28,512
  9. 2013 – 28,270
  10. 2021 – 28,088

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The No. 10-ranked University of Michigan women’s lacrosse team will play a pair of contests this weekend, starting with its Big Ten Conference opener Friday (March 18) at 2 p.m. at Johns Hopkins. The Wolverines will then conclude the weekend Sunday (March 20) with a non-conference noon game at Villanova.

Wolverine Bites

• Michigan moved to No. 10 in the IL/IWLCA Coaches Poll this week after a loss to then-No. 11 Denver.

• Senior Kaitlyn Mead became the fifth Wolverine in Michigan history to reach 100 career draw controls. She had six against Denver (March 13) to bring her career total to 105.

• Freshman Julia Schwabe earned Big Ten Conference Freshman of the Week honors after having two assists and a draw control against Denver last weekend.

• Fifth year senior Caitlin Muir broke the Michigan points record in the first week of the season and has 188 points (108 goals, 80 assists). Muir is also just the fourth player in Michigan women’s lacrosse history to score 100 career goals, joining Kim Coughlan, Jess Angerman and Anna Schueler after netting four goals against Arizona State (Feb. 18). In order to become the all-time leader in goals, Muir would need to score 16 goals in the 2022 season to pass Coughlan, who netted 124 career goals.

• Freshman Kaylee Dyer has made her presence known early and often in the 2022 season as she ranks second for the Wolverines with 20 points. Dyer has recorded 11 goals, which ranks fifth overall for Michigan, and nine assists, which ranks second behind Muir. The Elkins Park, Pa. native has had seven multi-point games this season with a career-best five points at Cincinnati (Feb. 20).
