Gopher-It Invite Cancelled
The Gophers as they cheer on the 400 freestyle relay team

March 3, 2012

The Minnesota men's swimming and diving team announced that the Gopher-It Invite that was originally scheduled for Sunday, March 4 has been cancelled. No make-up date has been set.

The Gophers are coming off a strong performance at the Big Ten Championships, placing fourth overall. Kristoffer Jorgensen claimed the title in platform diving and looks to continue his success. Zach Bolin is coming off a third-place finish in the 100 freestyle at the Championships, while Kyler Van Swol continues leading the Gophers in the 100 and 200 butterfly.

Minnesota's 400 freestyle relay team of Bolin, Derek Toomey, Ben Griggs and Hrvoje Capan captured third-place honors at the Big Ten Championships and will keep focus on aiming for the top. The Gophers are deep in the 100 breaststroke, posting three top-ten finishes at the Championships by Jared Anderson, Josh Hall and Max Cartwright.

Minnesota diving will travel next to NCAA Zone Diving March 8-11. The Gopher men, names will be announced next week, will head to the NCAA Championships March 22-24 at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Seattle, Washington. Minnesota finished in 15th place last year at the NCAA's and will look to advance again with veterans Van Swol and Toomey, who both earned All-American honors at the Championships.
