Gophers reclaim Floyd of Rosedale

Floyd of Rosedale has a new home. The traveling trophy is now in Minnesota’s possession after a 51-14 walloping of Iowa on Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium. The Hawkeyes blew out Minnesota the past two seasons but got a taste of their own medicine Saturday. As the game ended, the Gophers raced across the field, ready to reclaim Floyd. “Once we sort of knew that we had the game, everyone lined up … just having fun with it, getting ready to run across the field as fast as we could,” redshirt sophomore tight end Maxx Williams said.


Minnesota begins season on top

Leagues away from home

In the second month of her freshman year, Titania Markland called her grandparents in tears. Like many freshmen, she was homesick. But unlike some of Markland’s peers, her family doesn’t live in the state. Most of them are still in Jamaica, where she grew up. Markland, a sprinter on the University of Minnesota track and field team, said during that call, her grandparents reminded her why she moved to Minnesota.


Gophers tie for first in tourney

The Gophers headed into the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown after a poor showing at their last tournament. But they bounced back, finishing tied for first in Nevada. “There’s some resilience there,” head coach Michele Redman said. “We just came off of one of the worst tournaments that we’ve ever had since I’ve been here, and then we came back and [won] the next one, and I think that shows a lot about the character of the ladies we have on our team.”


Laguna, Laorr step up for Gophers

The Gophers’ freshman class dominated the team’s starting lineup in its last tournament, taking three of five spots. Early on, the freshman trio has made an immediate impact on the course. But it was two of the team’s seniors who led in the third tournament of the season. Carmen Laguna and Anna Laorr competed in all 11 tournaments as juniors last season and led the team on the course. Laguna averaged 74.2 strokes per round and Laorr was at 75.3, tops on the team last season.
