The Gophers' 1V8 boat of coxswain Megan Flannery, Laura Jatautaite at stroke, and Cheryl Wick, Jenny Barnes, Erika Bartkute, Vilma Stragyte, Sally Olson, Berit Tomten and Jenna Buskohl at bow defeated both Iowa and Wisconsin in commanding fashion this past weekend.  In the morning round, the No. 11 Gophers crossed the finish line with a time of 6:40.92, over an eight-second split from Iowa's mark of 6:49.24.  Minnesota then followed with a win over No. 15 Wisconsin in the afternoon session.  The Maroon and Gold held a commanding lead throughout the race, jumping out to nearly a boat-length lead in the first 250 meters of the race. The Gophers finished with a time of 6:23.81, nearly nine seconds ahead of the Badgers in 6:32.36.
