Fabulous true freshmen for Gophers teams:

•Samantha Seliger-Swenson (volleyball). Enrolled early to practice with team in spring. Her work as setter has had as much to do with Gophers' turnaround from 2014 as anything.

•Shannon Brooks (football). The running back from Atlanta went into season finale with 638 yards and seven TDs — four on runs between 38 and 75 yards.

•Sarah Potomak (hockey). A forward from Aldergrove, British Columbia, she had seven points in Friday's blowout of MSU Mankato. She has a point in her first 15 college games.
