2010 Spring Issue 7 (May 21, 2010)
Under the guidance of Central Region Coach of the Year Stefan Zweifel, Carleton men’s tennis put on a strong showing at the 2010 NCAA tournament with a convincing first round win and a very close loss to a top national team to finish out a remarkable season.
This weekend, the Gods of Plastic ultimate team will head to Appleton, Wisconsin to participate in the UPA Division III Collegiate championship. GOP is the defending champion at this event after capturing the title in Versailles, Ohio last year.
Last weekend the Knights took 8th at the 2010 MIAC Outdoor Track Championships. There were a number of impressive performances from the meet, including the fact that All-Star Clare Franco ’12 was featured on Carleton’s athlete passes. The 1600 meter relay was clocked at 4:00.63, placing 7th and setting a new school record. Laura Roach ’10 took 2nd in the steeplechase.
The men’s track and field team competed at the MIAC Outdoor Championships Friday and Saturday at St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minnesota. Their tenth-place team finish fails to tell the story of the meet for the Knights, who enjoyed one of their most successful competitions of the season. Charlie Gamble ’10 earned his fourth All-MIAC citation with a second-place finish in the 5,000 meters. Gamble and Sanders both competed at last-chance meets in an effort to qualify for next weekend’s NCAA Championship.
