Minnesota Gophers Release 2017-18 Schedule

Following a great showing at the 2017 U.S. Worlds Trials, the Minnesota Gophers have announced their 2017-18 NCAA schedule.

They’ll kick off their season with the annual Alumni Meet on September 29th, before flying south to take on the Florida State Seminoles at their first dual of the year on October 7th. Next, they’ll travel to Iowa City to swim against Iowa, before rounding out the regular fall season by hosting B1G opponents Michigan, Wisconsin and Penn State.

Minnesota will host its own invites for both diving and swimming before the new year, then gear up for their last few dual meets of the season. The Gophers are hosting the men’s B1G and NCAA Championships, as well as a NCAA Diving Zone qualifier.

The Gophers will look to bring their momentum from this summer into the next NCAA season. At Worlds Trials, five school LCM records were broken, and several Gophers were present during the finals sessions of multiple events.

The schedule below is the women’s schedule– the men’s schedule is exactly the same, except for the B1G Champs and the NCAA Champs will be at Minnesota, one weekend later than the respective women’s champs meets.
