In case you didn’t follow what happened with RMU sports over the weekend, here is a quick round-up to bring you up to speed on the games that RMU Sentry Media couldn’t get a reporter to.

The RMU track & field team went to the Youngstown State Icebreaker over the weekend and came back with the following results: Tara Gologram finished in eighth place in the 60 meter hurdle dash, Kaitlyn Hawkins tied for eighth in the pole vault, Zoe Roush finished fifth in the long jump, Estelle Katende finished first in the shot put, Robert Morris placed third in the 4×400 meter relay and Tara Richardson finished third in the 1000 meter run.

Women’s Hockey: RMU – 1; Minnesota – 6

RMU women’s hockey (8-9-4, 6-1-1 CHA) didn’t have themselves much of weekend after they took an ugly loss to the second nationally ranked University of Minnesota Gophers (16-2-1, 9-2-1 WCHA) by a final of 6-1. The Colonials’ only dent against the Gophers came in the first at 5:18 when Jaycee Gebhard scored RMU’s only goal with assistance from Amber Rennie. Everything else was all Minnesota’s doing. The first period goals came from Grace Zumwinkle at 4:13, Emily Brown at 13:34, Taylor Wente at 14:34 and Kelly Pannek at 15:41. The pain for Robert Morris didn’t stop there as Nicole Schammel scored at 10:59 and Alex Woken at 12:48 in the second period. These proved to be all the goals that Robert Morris and the University of Minnesota picked up as neither team managed to score any other goals in the third.


Women’s Hockey: RMU – 0; Minnesota – 5

The RMU women’s hockey team (8-10-4, 6-1-1 CHA) couldn’t come through again against the second nationally ranked University of Minnesota Gophers (17-2-1, 9-2-1 WCHA) as the Colonials got shutout this time 5-0. Minnesota got the scoring started in the first period on a power play goal from Taylor Heise at 11:18. The second goal in the first period came on a shootout goal from Kelly Pannek at 14:44. The scoring continued in the second period when Taylor Williamson scored at 10:51. The last two goals for Minnesota came in the third period when Alex Woken scored at 1:39 and Heise scored again at 15:00. RMU women’s hockey is off for the next month to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s and will return on Jan. 18-19, 2019 when they travel north to face the Syracuse Orange (4-14-1, 4-3 CHA) at 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. respectively.
