The Gophers captured three individual titles at last year's Baldy Castillo Invitational
Luca Wieland broke his own school record and posted the eighth-highest point total ever by a collegiate athlete to win the 2015 NCAA heptathlon title.
The heptathlon concludes on Saturday with the final three events - the 60-meter hurdles (10:45 a.m. CT), the pole vault (11:30 a.m. CT) and the 1,000 meters (2:00 p.m. CT).
Wieland's mark of 5,787 stands as the Minnesota all-time record in the heptathlon as well as the best performance in the Big Ten this season.
The sophomore was one of two Gophers to earn Big Ten titles last weekend along with Mitchell Hechsel's NCAA-best 600 meter time of 1:16.26.
