The Carleton College volleyball team did what no other conference squad could do, take No. 7 ranked University of St. Thomas to a full five sets. The Knights overcame a one-set deficit and nearly completed the upset, falling 25-21, 17-25, 20-25, 26-24, 12-15 in the semifinals of the MIAC Playoffs. Senior Jessa Youso led all players with 20 kills and figured in six blocks.
