Knights Win MIAC Tournament Title: Men's Soccer Starts NCAA Tourney Quest Against Westminster College in St. Peter This Weekend
On the back of a two-goal performance from Will Corcoran ‘14 and a tremendous defensive effort in the second half, the Carleton College men’s soccer team defeated Saint John’s University, 2-1, to claim its second MIAC postseason crown along with the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Championships.
Carleton College men’s soccer players Neil Bartholomay ‘14 and Trent Elmore ‘16 play alongside one another on the Knights’ backline. Both were named to the 2013 Academic All-District team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) for their strong performances on the field and in the classroom.
Following her squad’s victorious performance at last weekend’s MIAC Championships, Donna Ricks was selected by her peers as the 2013 MIAC Women’s Cross Country Coach-of-the-Year.
In its final road contest of the season, the Carleton College football team racked up over 350 yards of total offense, but the Gustavus Adolphus College rushing attack proved to be too much to handle. The Knights (4-5, 2-5 MIAC) fell behind early and were unable to complete their comeback bid, dropping the game by a final score of 34-19.
The Carleton College women’s swimming and diving team hosted the University of St. Thomas in a dual meet on Friday night. After a special pre-racing presentation of the Margate Memorial Trophy to the Tommies, the Knights won six events but came out on the short end of a 197-103 score.
The Carleton College men’s swimming team won eight of the sixteen events but came up short against the University of St. Thomas, 162.5 to 125.5, in the annual celebration of the Margate Memorial Trophy.
