Intrasquad weekend for women’s cross country

The Gold team defeated Maroon in a tune-up for next week’s opener.

Paced by senior Lauren Williams, the Gold team defeated Maroon 25-31 in Minnesota’s women’s cross country team’s intrasquad scrimmage Saturday.

Williams, the Gophers’ top finisher in every race last year, came in first again Saturday, completing the 5-kilometer course in 18:07.

Running for the Maroon team, junior Emily Brown placed second overall, in 18:11. A pair of freshmen made their way into the top 10, with Kristin Johansen taking sixth, and Danielle Ashford finishing 10th.

Minnesota opens its regular season Saturday, when the Gophers host the Oz Memorial Run at the Les Bolstad Course.

Hockey schedule out

Minnesota’s men’s hockey team will open its regular season on Oct. 14 with a home series against Alaska-Fairbanks.

The conference schedule begins Oct. 21 against Minnesota State at Mariucci Arena.

The nonconference schedule will see the Gophers travel to Michigan and Michigan State Nov. 25 and 26, respectively, for the College Hockey Showcase. Minnesota will host Canisius, Massachusetts-Lowell and Union Dec. 29 and 30 at Mariucci Arena for the Dodge Holiday Classic.

The regular season schedule closes with a home series against Minnesota-Duluth, starting March 3.

Women’s basketball also releases schedule

Minnesota’s women’s basketball team opens its season Nov. 19 at Williams Arena against San Francisco in the Subway Classic, which also features Long Island and Stanford.

The Gophers will play in another preseason tournament, at the Paradise Jam Nov. 25 and 26 at St. Thomas.

The highlight of the nonconference schedule comes Jan. 7 when Minnesota travels to Baton Rouge, La., for a showdown against Louisiana State, a Final Four team from a year ago.

Gophers’ NFL roster movement

Former Minnesota running back Tellis Redmon was among the last players released when the Baltimore Ravens made their final roster cuts Saturday.

Ex-Gophers fullback Thomas Tapeh survived the Philadelphia Eagles’ cut-down day by being placed on the physically unable to perform list, as a result of a dislocated hip, which he suffered late last regular season. Tapeh can return to practice anytime between weeks 6 and 9 of the season, at which point the Eagles will have 21 days to activate him, release him, or place him on injured reserve.
