Minnesota finished 14th at the Big Ten championships this weekend. The Gophers shot a combined 56-over par. The two seniors, Rúnar Arnórsson and Riley Johnson, had the two best finishes for Minnesota.  

Gophers lean on experience heading into Big Ten championships

Heading into the Big Ten championships, the Gophers feel they are peaking at the right time.  Minnesota is coming off their tie for sixth out of 13 teams at the Hawkeye Invitational in tough weather on April 14. Senior Riley Johnson finished in the top ten for the first time in his career. 

Gophers split series with victory over Iowa and loss to Nebraska

Minnesota (14-11, 6-5) lost to No. 46 Nebraska (18-6, 7-4) 4-3 on the outdoor courts in Lincoln, Nebraska. The doubles point proved to be the deciding factor in another close Big Ten battle for the Gophers. Nebraska clinched the doubles point from the No. 1 spot and took the first three of four singles matches. 

Mehvish Safdar remains strong suit in doubles

Senior Mehvish Safdar does not normally play in the singles portion of the dual, but she is considered one of the top doubles players on the team and has played in the No. 1 position for the Gophers all year long.
