2012 Spring Issue 6 (May 11, 2012)
This Friday, the team heads to the University of Chicago campus to play the first round in the NCAA championships against Grinnell College. The winning team will face No. 2 Chicago.
Track meets don’t get much more exciting than last week’s Tommie Twilight. The team had at least 19 personal records, which is a large percentage considering the size of the team. The Knights will use these fantastic performances as a springboard into this weekend’s conference championships, which will be held at Concordia College in Moorhead.
All six seniors on the Carleton College baseball roster played a key role in the Knights closing the 2012 campaign with a 7-3 triumph over host Saint Mary’s University. Carleton dropped game one, 3-2, despite Nolan Baker’s ‘15 three hits, including his first collegiate home run.
After earning four top ten finishes in the MIAC decathlon, the Carleton men’s track and field team heads to the MIAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, eager to improve on its ninth place finish a year ago. The key to the team’s success will be strong performances from a number of young Knights.
Jocelyn Keller, formerly the head women’s soccer coach at Earlham college, has been named the new head women’s soccer coach. She will be the ninth head coach in the program’s history. Keller will replace Keren Gudeman.
