2013 Spring Issue 4 (May 3, 2013)
While the Carleton College men’s track and field team won only two of the 17 events in this year’s Rolex Classic against St. Olaf College, the Knights claimed victory in the meet. As a tradition, at the end of the day, the teams pick a random event. The school that won that event wins the meet.
The Carleton College men’s tennis team closed the regular season with a 7-2 triumph over the University of St. Thomas in a matchup of regionally-ranked squads. The victory locked up the No. 2 seed and the coveted first-round bye for the upcoming MIAC Playoffs. This is the 11th consecutive season that the Knights have posted a top-2 finish in the conference standings.
Kaitlin Bagley ‘14 had five hits on the day, and Keelin Davis ‘16 tossed another gem as the Carleton College softball team split its third straight doubleheader. Host Hamline University prevailed in game one, 5-3, but Davis recorded her first collegiate shutout, 2-0, in the nightcap.
Claire Spencer ‘16 won her seventh consecutive singles match and closed the MIAC regular season with an unblemished 10-0 record in conference contests as the Carleton College women’s tennis team defeated St. Olaf College by a 7-2 margin. The match was moved to the Owatonna Tennis Center due to wet weather.
Jeff Dsida ‘14 set the tone today for the Carleton College baseball squad (12-14, 2-8 MIAC), homering to straightaway centerfield on the first pitch of the Knights’ first turn at bat. Carleton went on to sweep the Bethel University Royals (19-10, 6-6 MIAC) by scores of 5-4 and 8-4 to pick up their first conference victories of the season.
