2013 Spring Issue 3 (April 26, 2013)
Carleton College men’s soccer player Neil Bartholomay ‘14 was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s (NSCAA) Scholar All-America second team, honoring his performance both on the field and in the classroom.
Although wet weather had prevented the Carleton College women’s tennis team from competing for more than two weeks, the Knights showed little sign of rust as they dispatched the College of Saint Benedict by a 9-0 score. The victory clinched a spot in the MIAC Playoffs on May 3-4.
The cold temperatures didn’t affect Carleton thrower Alex Polk ‘15 Saturday in his home stadium at the Carleton Relays. The Knights’ sophomore turned in a terrific performance in the javelin, finishing second overall and first among MIAC and Division III competitors.
Despite the snowy weather only 36 hours earlier, the Carleton College track and field teams hosted the Knights’ only co-ed home meet of the 2013 outdoor season on Saturday. The men’s team finished in fourth place at the Carleton Relays.
The Carleton College men’s tennis team faced conference power Gustavus Adolphus College on Saturday, and despite fighting valiantly, the result was somewhat predictable for the Knights as the Gusties prevailed once again, something they have done in 256 consecutive regular-season MIAC matches stretching back to 1985.
Thanks to the yeoman’s effort by the Carleton College facilities staff and grounds crew, the track at Laird Stadium was cleared of snow in order to allow the track and field teams to hold the Carleton Relays— the Knights’ only co-ed home meet of the 2013 outdoor season—as scheduled. The Carleton women finished in fourth place.
