Caroline Ryba didn’t have the opportunity to savor her final weeks at home before coming to the University of Minnesota.
The freshman rehabilitated a hip alignment issue within a month of joining the Gophers.
During that month, she couldn’t play tennis or go running. But luckily for her, the issue was fixed before she got to campus.
And once she arrived in Minneapolis, she refused to let the setback get in the way of success.

Dropping just one match Saturday against two opponents, the Gophers men’s tennis team began the season with a 2-0 record — the first time since 2009.
The Gophers hosted Marquette University and South Dakota State University and were able to dominate the doubles competition in both meets, which gave them a one-point lead going into the singles competition.
Head coach Geoff Young said he always watches the doubles competition carefully.
Freshman Felix Corwin beat his teammate Matic Spec for the title.
