Minnesota women’s hockey wraps season with Wisconsin sweep

The Minnesota women’s hockey team (28-5-1, 21-2-1 WCHA) swept past Wisconsin (18-12-2, 15-8-1) this weekend.
The Gophers beat the Badgers 4-2 Saturday and 11-3 Friday to finish its regular season on a high note. The Saturday win was notched thanks to Shannon Kennedy.
Kennedy, a senior, knocked in the game-winner early in the third period to break a 2-2 tie. Minnesota freshman Ronda Curtin iced the game with a goal later in the third.
Minnesota has now won 18 straight games.
But that streak will be in jeopardy next weekend. Minnesota plays in the WCHA tournament, starting with Minnesota State at the Bloomington Ice Gardens, Thursday at noon.
Men’s golf
The Minnesota men’s golf team is in 14th place after the first day of play at the Puerto Rico Classic.
The Gophers are led by senior All-American Martin LeMesurier, who is tied for fifth place after shooting a two-under par score of 70.
Dave Gunderson is three-over par heading into today’s action and 1998 NCAA champion James McLean is eight-over.
Anything could change today, as just 16 strokes separate Minnesota and first-place Clemson.

Women’s golf
The women’s golf team finished ninth at the Midwest Classic in Dallas, Texas.
The Gophers were led by Katie Bakken, who finished in eighth place.
Minnesota finished ahead of Big Ten rivals Illinois, Penn State, Michigan and Iowa. Northwestern and Wisconsin finished ahead of the Gophers.
