2011 Winter Issue 6 (February 18, 2011)
After last Wednesday’s big win over St. Thomas propelled the Carleton men’s basketball team into a tie for first place in the MIAC, the Knights hit the road this week and preyed on the conference’s cellar-dwellers like lions picking off the weakest wildebeests of the herd.
The Knights (6-18, 5-16 MIAC) ended their five-game losing streak this week, defeating the Macalester Scots on Wednesday, 66-65. They were unsuccessful against their previous two opponents, losing to Saint Mary’s on Saturday and Bethel on Monday. Up next, St. Olaf.
The Meet of the Hearts took place last Saturday at the Rec Center and it certainly lived up to the hype. The Knights used a number of impressive performances to take third in the meet out of five teams.The Knights’ next competition is tomorrow at the University of Minnesota.
The Carleton men’s track team celebrated Valentine’s Day early last weekend, hosting the Meet of the Hearts Saturday at the Rec Center and finishing in second place out of five teams.
