  • Women’s tennis rolls over Olaf

    With yet another infamous spring break trip to South Carolina behind them, the women’s tennis team kicked off spring term with a trip across town to play rival St. Olaf. Wednesday, amidst blustery conditions, Carleton got off to a slow start in doubles competition. Frances Leung ’10 and Devin Daugherty ’11 were the first team to earn a point at third doubles, pulling ahead of their opponents with an 8-4 score.

    Track & field heads to MIAC Championships

    Macalester displaced its students’ community garden to make way for the new athletic center. Macalester President Brian Rosenberg helpfully noted,"Athletic and recreation facilities are one of the points on campus that define the sort of community a college wants to be," (athletics.macalester.edu). Luckily the Carleton women’s track and field team put this “green” facility to excellent use late into the night last Friday at the Pre-MIAC meet.

    MIAC Conference Champions 2009For the first time since the team’s back-to-back MIAC titles in 2000-01, the Carleton women’s swimming and diving team won the MIAC Championship at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center in convincing fashion. The Knights entered the third day of competition with a 60 point lead over reigning champion Gustavus, who was seeking their third title in a row, and ended the day with a 101.5 point victory.

    The championship was Carleton’s third of the decade. Several Knights had impressive individual performances and earned berths to the NCAA Championships. The men’s swimming and diving team, meanwhile, came in fourth, holding off St. Johns in the final event. Only three schools have won women's team titles this decade: Gustavus (4), Carleton (3) and St. Olaf (3).

    Knights' season ends in Auggie heartbreak

    Trailing Augsburg 65-64 with three seconds remaining in their opening round game of the MIAC playoffs Monday night, the Carleton Knights put the ball in the right pair of hands. Senior co-captain Zach Johnson, the program's all-time leading scorer and the 16th best in Minnesota college basketball history, found a decent look at a long-range jumper, but three more points were not to be added to his illustrious total as the buzzer-beating attempt bounced off the rim, bringing to an untimely end a season full of excitement and milestones for the men's basketball program.

  • Men’s tennis stays undeafeated in conference

  • Distance runners lead women’s track

    The women’s track and field team spiced up the Parent’s Day Open at the University of Minnesota last Saturday. As you may have noticed, co-captain Amy Elson ’10 is too well-rounded and talented for her own good. After two spectacular triple jumps qualified her for the finals, Elson improved on these distances to jump 10.24m (over 33 feet, 7 inches) in her final jump, although she had to skip the 200 meter dash.

    Last Friday night, Charlie Gamble ’10 went to the Snowshoe Open, a Division I meet at the University of Minnesota and finished fifth in the mile run, clocking an impressive 4:14.95 and qualifying provisionally for the NCAA Division III Championships.
