2012 Winter Issue 7 (February 24, 2012)
The Carleton women accumulated four individual all-conference performances as well as an All-MIAC showing in the meet’s final event.
The Carleton College men’s swimming and diving team wrapped up the three days of competition with a fifth-place showing in the team competition. The final day included individual performances by Erik Klontz ‘13 and Benito Ramirez ‘14 as well as an All-MIAC performance in the 400-yard freestyle relay.
The Carleton College women’s basketball team rallied from a 10-point deficit in the second half but was unable to upend cross-town rival St. Olaf, dropping the season finale, 60-57.
The most striking element of the Knights outing at the meet was the sheer number of impressive performances. First-year Garo Anguiano-Sainz started his day by demolishing the ten-second barrier in the 60 hurdles with a time of 9.53 and then ran 24.31 in the 200 meter.
The highest placing Knight of the day, however, was Miss Haley Johnson ’13. I’m not really sure I believe that she was sick—I think she just wanted a nap. She slept through the early portion of the meet to place third in the 1000m run, breaking the three-minute barrier and putting her as the fastest 1000m runner in the conference right now.
Even though St. Olaf made five of its six shots in overtime, the Knights kept battling and pulled out the win thanks to two Sawatzke three-pointers. The second one came from well beyond the arc with 22 seconds remaining to bring the Knights within one point.
