2012 Fall Issue 3 (October 5, 2012)
After battling illness last week, Guthrie Cunningham ‘14 helped guide the Carleton College men’s cross country team to an 11th-place finish at the Roy Griak Invitational hosted by the University of Minnesota. That is the Knights best team finish at this event since 2007.
The Carleton College volleyball team saw its four-match winning streak snapped as the Knights were swept at Northwestern College in a non-conference match.
The Carleton College football team racked up 311 yards of total offense on Saturday, but the Knights (2-2, 1-2 MIAC) failed to overcome yet another early deficit, falling to No. 3 University of St. Thomas, 47-24.
Carleton (6-3-2, 2-2-1 MIAC) came into the game in the midst of a 419-minute scoring drought at home. That streak ended quickly when Ord hauled in a cross from Ellie Wilson ‘15 and put the ball in the back of the net just 52 seconds into the game.
The Men’s Soccer team, currently ranked 16th in the nation according to the NCAA poll, pulled off two impressive MIAC wins away from home, with victories against Macalester and Gustavus Adolphus improving the Knights’ record to 9-1 overall and 3-1 in MIAC play.
