2011 Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Champions

Carleton women’s soccer won back-to-back MIAC regular-season crowns in 2010 and 2011 and claimed the conference playoff title in 2008 and 2009 en route to three consecutive trips to the NCAA Championships from 2008-10. In 2011 the Knights were ranked No. 11 in the NSCAA, the highest ranking in program history.

Three Knights earned All-MIAC honors for the 2012 season and Marlena Hartman-Filson '13 picked up her second All-Region recognition as she was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-North Region third team.

In 2010 the Knights finished the regular season 9-1-1 in the MIAC, winning their first regular-season title since 1982. Carleton was ranked No. 15 in the NSCAA final regular-season poll and won its NCAA Tournament opening-round matchup against No. 18 Augustana (SD) College, 2-1 in overtime, and finished the campaign with 15 wins—the second-highest total in school history.

Carleton made a successful debut in the NCAA Championships in 2008, advancing all the way to the quarterfinals (“Elite 8”), marking the first time in school history for any Carleton team to advance that far in a national tournament. With 18 win and a first-time conference tournament championship, the team set new program records.

Two Knights have received All-America honors in the program’s history and 10 players have been named to the All-Region team in the last six seasons. The squad has also won 12 straight team academic awards and its 2011-2012 GPA was third among NCAA Division III programs.
