The women's world hockey championship will be held this summer after all, except in a new location.
Hockey Canada announced Wednesday that the 10-nation tournament will take place Aug. 20-31 at WinSport Arena in Calgary, Alberta. Teams are expected to arrive there on Aug. 10 to quarantine.
The event was twice scheduled to take place in Halifax and Truro, in 2020 and again in May. Both times it was called off by Nova Scotia officials because of concern about COVID-19 cases.
The U.S. roster, when it was announced in March, had six Minnesotans on it, including forward Grace Zumwinkle, one of the Gophers' co-captains this past season.
Tiziani wins Senior Open by 4
After starting the second day four shots off the lead, pro Mario Tiziani of the Chaska Town Course shot 6-under 66 to win the Minnesota Senior Open at Keller Golf Course in Maplewood by four shots. He finished with an 8-under 137 total.
Joel B. Johnson was the low amateur and second overall after rounds 70 and 71 for a 3-under 141.
U golfer Flanagan turns pro
Senior Angus Flanagan, the Gophers' top golfer this past season, announced on Twitter he is turning pro. He will join the new eight-event Forme Tour, established to ease young golfers into the PGA Tour. He qualified for it by finishing 11th in the PGA Tour University Rankings.
Flanagan, of Woking, England, could have come back for another year because the NCAA granted athletes an extra year of eligibility for pandemic disruptions.
"I would like to thank my teammates for the best 4 years of my life," Flanagan tweeted. He also thanked his college coaches.
• Minnesota United loaned striker Foster Langsdorf to USL Championship's Tampa Bay Rowdies and defender Callum Montgomery to San Diego Loyal, both for the rest of the season with the right to recall them.
• Former Gophers defensive lineman Ali Saad, who entered the transfer portal in February, announced via Twitter he has committed to Bowling Green. The 6-3, 260-pound Saad, a Dearborn, Mich., native, was a three-star recruit in coach P.J. Fleck's 2020 class. He did not see game action.
• University of Mary long-distance runner Ida Narbuvoll, of Narbuvoll (same as her last name), Norway, was named the National Women's Track Athlete of the Year. She won the 5000- and 10,000-meter runs at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Allendale, Mich., last week. She broke a 36-year-old meet record in the 5,000 by more than 20 seconds.
