So - the team thinks this page is all about them. I hate to shock you with a rude awakening, but it is really all about the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings. They are the ones who are stuck at home and want to know more about what is going on. So, I thought I would add some news pieces. The kind of stuff that doesn't hit the Daily or even Gopher Sports.
GopherSports.com announced a few of the scholar athletes from the Track, Field and Cross Country teams, but man...there were really a lot of you. So, here is the whole list. Your family salutes you! To be honored as a Gold scholar-athlete, the student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 while participating in intercollegiate athletics at the U. A Maroon scholar-athlete must have earned a 3.0 GPA in either spring or Fall 2007. For specifics about track and field athletes who received very high rankings see http://www.gophersports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=38651&SPID=3300&DB_OEM_ID=8400&ATCLID=1382386
