2013 Winter Issue 3 (February 1, 2013)
It’s extremely early in the 2013 season, but if the initial indications come to mean anything, it could be a very exciting indoor campaign for the Carleton College men’s track and field team. The Knights won three events at the Minnesota State Mankato Open, a meet that featured mostly competitors from NCAA Division II institutions.
With the Knights competing exclusively against racers from NCAA Division II institutions, Colette Celichowski ‘15 and Ruth Steinke ‘16 finished 1-2 in the mile run, crossing the line at 5:12.43 and 5:13.26, respectively, to highlight several strong performances by the Carleton College women’s track and field team at the Minnesota State-Mankato Open.
The Carleton College women’s swimming and diving team wrapped up its dual meet portion of the season at St. Olaf College, and it is fitting that the seniors led the way.
The dozen seniors on the Carleton College men’s swimming and diving team, participated in the final dual meet of their careers as the Knights traveled across town to face St. Olaf College on Senior Day for both squads.
Putting up a team high 26 points on the afternoon, senior Tom Sawatzke ‘13 joined exclusive company as just the 26th Carleton College men’s basketball player to tally 1,000 career points. Sawatzke’s historic effort, which was one point shy of his career high and marked his 12th career 20-point game, played a key role in a Knights’ comeback that came up just short.
