GOPHERS HEAD TO BIG TENS!!
The gophers depart tomorrow for the Big Ten Championships to be held on the campus of Penn State University! Minnesota is the two time defending Big Ten Team Champions and will be in search of title number three this weekend.
It is never easy in the Big Ten as evidenced by a 1 point win in 2007 and a 4 point win in 2008, but the Gophers go in with a strong chance for the three-pete. Challenging Minnesota will be 4 other NCAA ranked opponents in Illinois, Penn State, Michigan, and Iowa.
The gophers will bring the most experienced squad to the meet with seven of nine returners from last years Big Ten Team! The two new additions are much improved Sophomore Stephanie Price from Mankato, Minnesota and freshman Kayla Wagner from Baldwin, WI. Both these athletes add to an extremely deep team that looks to "attack with a pack!"
