Anticipating and analytical: Maddie Castro hopes to cement legacy for Minnesota

In her freshman season, forward Maddie Castro didn't start in any matches. She didn't start her sophomore or junior seasons, either. Finally, on Aug. 17, in Minnesota's season opener against Utah, Castro started in her first career match. The next match on Aug. 19, Castro scored her second career goal and recorded an assist in the Gophers' 2-1 victory over Utah State.
