FOLLOW THE GOPHERS
Harvard streams its races, weather permitting. Fans can follow the action here.
The Golden Gophers have been fortunate this week to go out on Lake Phalen for practice time. Due to the unusual high water of the Mississippi River, the Golden Gophers have had limited time out in the water this spring.
Minnesota will be idle next week and returns to action, May 1 in a dual against Wisconsin. Races will be held in Madison, Wis., as a final tune-up before the Big Ten Championships.
