News Bits

Meghan Peyton blogs on her race at the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon HERE.

Minnesota Daily report on Wisconsin Adidas Invitational is HERE.(Note: according to "official" results from Wisconsin meet Gopher men finished 25th.  Confusion seems to be over Gopher Bob Nicolls, who was the second finisher for the team in 97th, while Andrew Larson was the third Minnesota finisher.  Both Nicolls and Larson had the same time of 24:21.  Appears there was a set of "official" results that are linked on the University of Minnesota SID site and the site put the Gophers in 29th without Nicolls in the event and has a list of finishers in the B race that does include Nicolls and other Gopher men HERE..  However, the current set of "official" meet results on the University of Wisconsin XC site have the Gophers in 25th HERE.  What the conflicting results do agree upon is that a second team of Gopher women won the B race at Wisconsin.  Results are HERE.)
