The Gophers also had four top finshers in the pole vault. Zach Siegmeier and Jack Szmanda each were at the top of the group after they both cleared 4.90m (16-0 3/4). Adam Isakson and Logan Markuson were each behind them in after clearing 4.75m (15-7) each.
Frank Falzone also won the 400m dash with a time of 49.25.
Minnesota had two throwers compete in the shot put in day two of the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational.
