2013 Spring Issue 2 (April 19, 2013)
Carleton College’s Avery Johnson was both outstanding and clutch in her first collegiate javelin victory Saturday at the Norse Relays hosted by Luther (Iowa) College. Johnson pulled out her first-place finish on her final throw to prevail in an exciting back-and-forth competition, recording one of the top throws in school history in the process.
Led by the class of 2013, the Carleton College men’s tennis team posted a 6-3 victory at Grinnell College, in a matchup of regionally-ranked squads. Seniors Alex Chin, Paul Cooper, and Austin Jiang each won in both singles and doubles.
Amelia Campbell ‘16 won the long jump by a wide margin and Avery Johnson ‘15 won the javelin with her final attempt as the Carleton College women’s track and field team took fourth at the Norse Relays with 71 points, only five behind conference foe Hamline University.
The Knights won six events, including three involving sophomore Colby Seyferth ‘15, and the Carleton College men’s track and field team finished second to host Luther College at the Norse Relays. The Knights finished with 127 points compared to 140 for Luther.
The Carleton College softball team gave No. 16 University of St. Thomas all it could handle in the opener, with the Tommies eventually rallying for a 3-2 walkoff victory. The momentum carried over to game two as St. Thomas grabbed the early lead and posted a 9-0 (5 inn.) win to complete the sweep and extend its home-field winning streak to 37 games.
