    Carleton has been represented well by its women’s soccer team this past week. On Saturday they came out on fire against cross-town rival, St. Olaf. After being kept out of the play-offs last year by Olaf, the Knights were determined to make this year different. The first half was one of their most intense, focused starts of a game all season and their determined energy paid off. In the seventh minute, Sophie Wood ’09 got on the end of a beautiful corner kick by Lily VanderStaay ’12, heading it past Olaf’s goalie with precision and poise.
