SCSU was in a team qualifying round when the Alexandria native aced the 16th hole with a 6-iron. Amazingly, this is Diekman's second hole in one, as he also claims to have aced a hole at only 10 years old.

Minnesota captured a pair of one-goal wins after topping the Huskies Friday, 2-1, from Mariucci Arena.
