    Hanks and Ballinger turn in strong performances at Rolex Classic

    If I were stranded on a deserted island and I could choose only one person to join me in a survival effort, that person would be John Hanks ’09. Why? Because he can throw a spear 177 feet, and that could prove extremely useful for hunting. Tuesday, it proved useful for winning the Rolex Classic javelin throw.

    Women’s gears up for MIAC Championship

    Last Saturday, Emma Sando ’09, normally considered a friendly and benign force, was so intimidating that the rainclouds fearfully fled the Macalester Track and Field Invitational, leaving Sando to kick her way to an exciting fourth place finish in the 5,000 meters with a personal record of 19:51. Laura Roach ’10 showed her appreciation for Sando by winning the 3,000 meter steeplechase in 11:00.33, well under the NCAA provisional qualifying mark despite running the entire race alone, far ahead of her competitors.

Four players had at least four hits on the day, including rookie Alex Wirta ‘12 who also pitched four solid innings for the win in game two. Jay Melson ‘09 contributed a 4-hit, 6-RBI performance. With the victories, Carleton moved into sole possession of second place in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) standings.

    Women’s track races past monumental obstacles

    Do you think racing 25 laps around the track sounds fun? What about racing in circles for 40 minutes? Can you even imagine a 6.2 mile race on a track? While some of us may have trouble with this image, last Saturday freshmen Simone Childs-Walker and Taylor Ffitch helped our dreams come true, as they competed in their first ever 10,000 meter race at St. Olaf. Childs-Walker easily made the NCAA provisional qualifying standard, winning in 36:31.25, and Ffitch started her 10k career off on the right note by running 39:24.63, neatly under the 40-minute mark.

Carleton’s top teams, CUT and Syzygy came into the tournament as the number one seeds, and neither team disappointed.
