Gopher all-American and 2006 Big Ten javelin champion Ruby Radocaj will open her 2008 season as the Gopher women begin the transition to outdoor competition at the Texas Southern Relays in Houston this weekend.
Radocaj (pictured), a senior who placed 3rd at Big Tens and 9th at the NCAA Championships last year, competes today at noon. The Gopher women arrived in Texas earlier in the week to enjoy some warm-weather training during the U of M's spring break, according to a Gopher media release.
None of the Gopher competitors at last weekend's NCAA Indoor Championships will compete in Texas.
Results from the meet are posted HERE.
