We didn’t get to our weekly non-rev review this week due to time constraints, but here is a preview of what Gophers teams are where and how you can try and keep track of them this weekend!

The meet began on Wednesday and saw the Gophers 200 Medley Relay team of Emily Cook, Lindsey Kozelsky, Tevyn Waddell and Zoe Avestruz take fifth place in a time of 1:36.22. Later in the evening Mackenzie Padington, Chantal Nack, Waddell and Avestruz led the Gophers 800 Freestyle Relay team to a second place finish in 7:00.10.
