My soreness comes from the 24 Hours of Telemark, or 24T, one of the near Midwest's most hardcore ski races. For years, the Carleton Nordic Ski team has made the long annual journey to northern Wisconsin to partake in the 24T. This year, 21 students on 6 teams from Carleton joined the race.
Ally Weaver and Megan Erlandson scored 14 points apiece, and Akemi Arzouman added 12 as the Carleton College women’s basketball team pulled off a huge upset Wednesday, defeating host Macalester College, 60-48, and delivering head coach Tammy Metcalf-Filzen her 250th career win. The Knights (3-9, 3-6 MIAC) and Scots (7-5, 7-2 MIAC) entered the contest at nearly opposite ends of the conference standings, but Carleton used a balanced scoring attack and surprisingly strong rebounding effort to steal the win. The loss drops Macalester out of a tie atop the conference standings.
The men’s indoor track team opens its season this afternoon with the Carleton Singular, contested at the Rec Center. The Knights are heavy favorites in every event.
The squad returns a number of sensational performers from last year, and adds to the mix an extremely talented group of first-years.
The men’s soccer season came to an abrupt end last Saturday following a disappointing 1-0 loss to Macalester College in the championship game of the MIAC tournament. Despite the loss, the Knights still had hopes for an NCAA tournament bid of their own. Their dreams would be crushed on Sunday night, however, when they were denied their second straight NCAA tournament appearance.

It was the final home game for five Carleton seniors, and two turned in stellar performances. Defensive end Adam Hallbeck matched his career high with nine tackles and added a sack and fumble recovery. Running back Phil Blue notched 55 yards on five carries, including an electrifying 47-yard gallop that highlighted the Knights’ first scoring drive

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, could have predicted the outcome of Saturday’s race at Como Park, but Carleton’s women’s cross-country team isn’t complaining. They outran Bethel University 65 to 91 to win the 2009 MIAC Championships.
The Carleton College offense turned in quite a mixed bag on Saturday. Several players set career highs, but six turnovers nullified the strong individual performances as the Knights fell on the road to Hamline University 34-17. Come on out to Laird Stadium at 1 p.m. for 2009’s final home game.
The men’s cross country team improved last year’s conference finish by one spot, taking 6th place in Saturday’s MIAC Championships at Como Park in St. Paul. Charlie Gamble ’10 battled sickness during the week and managed a 22nd-place finish in 27:01. John Davis ’11 ran his best race of the season to finish 24th in 27:03.
Its fall, and that means IM’s galore! Although the premature chills and rain might hamper some leagues, Carls are just that dedicated, or crazy, with some of the wettest days being the most attended. There are currently 7 leagues (Flag Football, 3x3 Basketball, Ultimate, Tennis, Sand Volleyball, Dodgeball, and the new addition Racquetball).
After falling behind early, the Carleton College women’s soccer team rallied for a crucial 3-1 triumph at St. Catherine University behind the first career hat trick by sophomore Niki Tomita. The victory moved the Knights (8-5-4/5-2-3 MIAC) into a three-way tie for fourth place in the conference standings. Carleton needs a win over crosstown rival St. Olaf College on Saturday to clinch a berth in the MIAC Playoffs.
