Freshman Sara Groenewegen threw a two-hitter as the No. 14-rated Gophers beat Wisconsin 3-0 on Sunday to split a home-opening doubleheader at Jane Sage Cowles Stadium.

The Badgers (17-15, 3-5) won the first game 2-1.

Groenewegen had a no-hitter for 6⅓ innings. The Gophers (28-5, 6-2) took a 2-0 lead on Taylor LeMay’s two-run single in the third. Kaitlyn Richardson doubled home another run in the fourth.

In the first game, Wisconsin scored single runs in the fourth and sixth innings on errors. LeMay hit her ninth homer in the fifth inning.

Tommies coach wins 750th

St. Thomas softball coach John Tschida won his 750th game when the Tommies beat visiting St. Benedict’s 6-0 Sunday in the second game of a doubleheader behind sophomore Brenna Walek’s three homers. She drove in all the runs, too.

Tschida’s career record is 750-133 in 20 MIAC seasons at St. Mary’s and, since 2001, St. Thomas.

The Blazers won the first game 2-1, ending two long winning streaks for the Tommies, 47 in a row at home and 30 consecutive against conference teams.

Meyer, U stifle Michigan

The Gophers scored two runs in the fourth inning to beat Michigan 3-1 Sunday in Big Ten baseball in Ann Arbor, Mich. Troy Traxler’s ground-rule double and Bobby Juan’s bloop single each drove for Minnesota (17-10, 5-4 Big Ten) to break a 1-1 tie. Ben Meyer pitched the first 7⅓ innings against the Wolverines (14-17-1, 4-5) and gave up only one run and six hits.

Etc.

• The Gophers women’s gymnastics team missed qualifying for the NCAA meet by finishing third Saturday in the regional meet it hosted but two team members will compete in the individual event finals on April 20 in Birmingham, Ala. Sophomore Lindsay Mable will compete in the all-around and Hana Nordquist on the balance beam. Mable won the all-around (39.400) in the regional while Nordquist (9.900) tied for first place on the beam.

• Penn State defeated the host Gophers 4-1 in men’s tennis. Leandro Toledo won 6-2, 6-4 at No. 1 singles for Minnesota’s point.
