2012 Spring Issue 4 (April 27, 2012)
Phil Humber of the White Sox said of his no-hitter last weekend, “What took place was just awesome.” Now, it may be slightly impressive for a pitcher to blank his opponents in one game, but the Lady Knights’ tennis team did it this weekend for their ninth time this season.
The weather was tough, but the Knights were tougher as Carleton took to their home track at the Carleton Relays on Saturday. A man who remembers the old track, the one that lasted 28 years before getting swamped by the flood of 2010, Kian Flynn ‘12 dusted off his armor as he took to lane one for his final Carleton Relays.The Knights compete all over the place this week.
For the first time in a long while, the women’s track team competed in the Carleton Relays last Saturday. A number of alums returned to the track and a good time was had by all, despite the rainy weather. Not only did the team have a good time, but they ran well. In the 1500m Tori Ostenso ’15 dropped nine seconds off her time from two weeks ago and Laura Newcombe ’13 dropped seven.
It was a split week for the Carleton Softball team, as they swept the University of Wisconsin-Stout before falling to the Hamline Pipers, 10-4, 11-9. The Knights will be at St. Olaf College this Saturday, April 28, at 1 p.m. for a doubleheader.
For the second time this season, Brian Chelsey ’13 was the top scorer for the men’s golf team, improving his score over each round of the Bobby Krig invitational to shoot an 83, a 79, and a 76 through three successive rounds at Le Sueur Country Club.
As the Women's Gold team traveled to the Wartburg Invitational, rookie Kelsey Moede had a strong weekend, pulling out a second-place individual finish with a score of 13-over-par 157. She also posted a career-best six-over par 78 in the final round of the tournament.
