This week the Knights showed few signs of straying from their winning routine, first defeating St. Olaf 8-1 at home and following up with a match against Luther College over the weekend.
Carleton College and visiting St. Olaf College were both undefeated in conference play heading into Wednesday’s showdown on the Bell Field Tennis Courts. The Knights posted a 7-2 victory and join Gustavus Adolphus as the lone remaining undefeated squads in the MIAC.
