2013 Spring Issue 5 (May 10, 2013)
One of the best seasons in Carleton College women’s golf history ended one step short of the goal, as the NCAA Championships field was announced without including any Knights.
The Carleton College softball team took part in the MIAC Playoffs for the first time on Friday. The Knights were the No. 9 seed in field and opened pool play with an 11-2 triumph over fourth-seeded Saint Mary’s University. Carleton could not hold a late lead against No. 5 seed Gustavus Adolphus College and was unable to advance out of the pool play stage.
After a dramatic comeback 5-4 victory over University of St. Thomas during the semifinal round, the Carleton College men’s tennis team did not have enough magic left and saw its season come to an end with an 8-1 loss to national No. 18 Gustavus Adolphus College in the finals of the MIAC Playoffs.
The season came to a close for the Carleton College baseball teams following a pair of losses to Saint Mary’s University. The Knights let a late lead slip away in a 6-4 game one setback, then watched a final-frame rally come up just short in dropping game two, 5-4.
Back-to-back champs! The Carleton College women’s tennis team successfully defended its MIAC Playoff title from a year ago by posting a 5-1 victory against Gustavus Adolphus College and a 5-0 triumph over University of St. Thomas.
