• The first varsity eight of the Gophers’ women’s rowing team was named the Big Ten boat of the week. It beat a Tennessee boat by 13.5 second to improve its record to 4-0.

• Minnesota Duluth’s Chris Casto, a sophomore defenseman from Hill-Murray, has signed an entry-level contract with the NHL’s Boston Bruins.
