Erich Hinterstocker was named an assistant Gophers volleyball coach. He was North Dakota State's coach from 2006-10, during which the Bison had a 95-38 record.

"We're excited to have Erich join the Gopher volleyball staff," said Hugh McCutcheon, the team's head coach. "Erich brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this job, and has had a winning tradition throughout his coaching career. We couldn't be happier that he's accepted this position."

Taking over a 5-31 program in 2005, Hinkerstocker's Bison teams were 17-13 record in 2006, went 20-8 in 2007 and 24-4 in 2009.

U swimmers excel

Swimmers for the Gophers won nine events in the Minnesota Challenge at the University Aquatic Center.

Derek Toomey won the 50 freestyle in 19.83 seconds, a career best and the fastest time by a Gopher this season. Monica Radecke won the women's 50 freestyle with a season best of 23.36.

The meet began with the 200 medley relay and ended with the 400 medley relays, and the Gophers' A relay teams won all four of those races. Radecke was on both those women's relays.

Other first-place finishers for the Gophers were Christie Clarke and Logan Redondo in the 500 freestyle and David Friesch in the 200 individual medley.

U golfers fall twice

The Gophers men's golf team lost twice in the Big Ten Match Play Championships in Bradenton, Fla. Michigan beat the Gophers 3-2 in their first match and Penn State defeated them 3-1-1 in consolation play. Erik Van Rooyen won his first match 5 and 4 and halved his second for the Gophers. The only teammates who won were Tyler Lowenstein 3 and 1 against the Wolverines and Jon Trasaman 1 up against the Nittany Lions.
