Gophers Lacrosse

This weekend the Minnesota Gophers Lacrosse team is hosting the Chris Jenkins memorial tournament at TCF Bank Stadium.

Saturday: Game vs. Illinois 4:00 PM $5 entry fee.
Sunday: Game vs. St. Thomas 2:00 PM $5 entry fee.

This tournament is held to remember a former member of the Gopher Lacrosse family, captain and goalie Chris Jenkins. Chris disappeared from downtown Minneapolis on October 31, 2002 and his body was found in the Mississippi River four months later without any clues as to who was responsible for his death. The Gophers hold their tournament to pay homage to who he was and to keep his memory alive.

The Gophers are taking on St. Thomas this Sunday. This is an important scrimmage for the Gophers because St. Thomas is currently undefeated and won the national championship last year. They have some talent on that team! As well as, the first game this season that the Gophers get to play at the TCF Bank Stadium.

This would be a great game to bring your family and see two of the best college lacrosse teams in Minnesota.

Come support your Minnesota Gophers!
