In a hotly contested match that could have gone either way, the Carleton College volleyball team (17-3, 5-3 MIAC) came up just short this Wednesday, losing a close one to the College of Saint Benedict.
The Carleton men’s cross country team used a very strong performance this last weekend to help them in their steady ascent up the national rankings. The team is now ranked 24th in NCAA Division III.
The Carleton women’ soccer team is running a seven game winning streak and only has 3 MIAC games left in their regular season schedule. They currently hold spot 5 in the conference rankings, although they have played fewer games that some of the teams ranked above them, and the Knights must win their next three games in order to secure a MIAC playoff berth.
Hamline University mistakenly scheduled Carleton College for what they hoped to be a Piper-friendly homecoming game last Saturday, and the Knights capitalized on this error to earn their first MIAC win of the season.
For the second straight week, the Carleton men’s soccer team finds itself at No. 20 in the NSCAA/addidas® national rankings. This is the first season in which the Knights have been nationally ranked.
