The Gophers women's cross-country team named six captains Saturday for this coming season. Patty O'Brien and Paige Peschel will return to the position while Molly Eastman, Abby Lange, Elyse Prescott and Kelsey Sather will be first-year captains.

"It's kind-of a big captain group with six people, but I think they all bring something different to the table," coach Sarah Hopkins said.

The Gophers' intrasquad meet will be on Aug. 31 after the team spends six days in Ely, Minn., on a preseason training trip.
