"The Gophers had a good day getting ready for next weeks conference championships. Many personal bests on both the men and women teams. While this may the youngest Goucher track & field team ever, they continue to work hard and believe in each other. If we can get healthy this week, we should have great results next weekend."
The Gophers are off during the week, but return to Susquehanna next weekend for the Landmark Conference indoor track & field championships.
