The No. 13 University of Minnesota women’s swimming and diving team (6-0) is set to host the University of North Dakota (6-6-1) Friday night at the Aquatic Center. Events are scheduled to begin at 5 pm.

The Gophers are coming off a month of tough training in Hawaii and are ready to match-up in their home pool. Most recently, Minnesota remained undefeated as they took down the University of Hawaii last week, 201-92. Tori Simenec led the Gophers with three individual victories, while freshman Lauren Votava and Kierra Smith each contributed two. On the diving side, Maggie Keefer earned first-place marks on the 1 and 3-meter boards.

North Dakota is coming off a split in a two-day meet at the U.S. Air Force Academy, falling to Air Force but earning a win over Seattle.

The last time the two teams met in a dual meet was when Minnesota hosted North Dakota back in 2005. The Gophers claimed a victory over the Fighting Sioux, 153-29.
