2013 Winter Issue 5 (February 15, 2013)
The Carleton College baseball team got the 2013 campaign started off Tuesday, with a doubleheader sweep of Crown College. Playing at the Metrodome, the Knights prevailed by scores of 26-5 and 17-0, with the second game featuring a three-pitcher, combined no-hitter for Carleton.
Sometimes it is hard to tell how well a track team did purely by looking at the point total at the end of the day. The Knights finished third among the four squads participating in the Meet of the Hearts held at Carleton College’s Recreation Center.
The Carleton College women’s track and field team won six events at the Meet of the Hearts this past Saturday, with the first-years accounting for all five of the individual event victories and encompassing half of the Knights’ record-setting distance medley relay unit.
Emma Purfeerst ‘14 notched a team-high 15 points and six rebounds, as the Carleton College women’s basketball team completed a sweep of the season series against Macalester College with a 61-53 victory on the road.
Senior Scott Theisen ’13 continued his amazing season last week with a trio of tremendous performances and some serious career milestones. The versatile Knights’ wing reached 1,000 points and 500 rebounds in his stellar career last week and notched his second triple-double of the season while leading Carleton to a 3-0 record and the brink of a MIAC Playoff berth.
In a back-and-forth affair that featured eight ties and a dozen lead changes, the Carleton College men’s basketball team came up just short against the visiting squad from Gustavus Adolphus College, 54-52.
