    Soccer teams primed for decisive Olaf matches: Men struggle with Wisconson foes, await Oles

    As has been the case more often than not this season, the Carleton men’s soccer team spent the entire weekend on the road, wrenched away from both a mesmerizing Ebony performance and a predictably-sweaty Sayles dance by an unfortunately-timed schedule. This time, the Knights traveled to exotic Wisconsin, beating Ripon College on Saturday before falling to No. 12 UW-Oshkosh the following day.

    Soccer teams primed for decisive Olaf matches: Women top UW-La Crosse before prep week

    Last Wednesday night, after a packed Parents’ Weekend, the Carleton women’s soccer team faced the challenge of playing their third game over the span of five days. But after making the two and a half hour trek out to University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, you never would have guessed it. Embodying their motto, All Day, All (K)night, the Knights demonstrated their ability to perform at any point during the Earth’s revolution, as this game marked only their second competition under stadium lights. The Eagles of La Crosse proved to be an endangered species, as Carleton found the back of their net four times.

    Football cooks up Mac, returns to campus for Senior Day tomorrow

    Though many of the 560,000-plus books at Carleton College receive regular use, there are some that sit untouched, gathering dust. Such is the case with the Book of Knowledge, the prized trophy at the center of the annual grudge match between the Carleton and Macalester football teams. For the eighth straight year, Carleton (3-4, 2-3 MIAC) asserted its dominance over the Scots on the gridiron and maintained possession of the treasured tome, rolling to a 42-27 win last Saturday in St. Paul.

    Cross Country teams set for MIAC ‘Ships: Men hope youth equals success

The men’s race takes place at Como Park in St. Paul and will begin at 2:15 p.m., while the women’s race will follow at 3 p.m.
