Senior Nick Yang joined the Minnesota diving program in 2017. Over the past two years, Yang has had to adjust to American collegiate sports, academics, language and culture.
Energetic teams, a lively crowd and Gophers alumni filled the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center this past Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
In the last few weeks, a wave of student-athletes have committed to and will be joining Minnesota’s swim and dive teams in future seasons.
Junior swimmer Lindsey Kozelsky is the typical student-athlete in many ways. Like a normal Gopher athlete, she runs from classes and homework to practice, travels on the weekends for competitions, and maintains a social life. But, in addition to managing all of the latter, Kozelsky takes on the role of a wife and balances a marriage.
Max McHugh, brother of former Gophers swimmer and NCAA All-American Conner McHugh, represented the University of Minnesota at the Big Ten/ACC Challenge this past weekend as the only Minnesota freshman on the all-star roster.
The inaugural Big Ten/ACC Challenge finished in favor of the Big Ten Sunday, and Minnesota's athletes played an important role in the conference's success.
For the first time ever, the Big Ten conference, as a whole, will compete against the teams of the Atlantic Coast Conference. On Nov. 10 and 11, the best swimmers and divers from each Big Ten college will travel to West Lafayette, Indiana to compete against the best of the ACC.
Fall season is coming to a close for Gophers’ women’s tennis, and the team is beginning to prepare for the spring season. Match play ends Nov. 11 for the women’s team.
Both on and off the court, Gophers men’s tennis head coach Geoff Young instills a passion in his team.
