Fresh off a record-setting first season for the Carleton College women’s golf team, Gina Kabasakalis ‘15 has been named the MIAC’s co-freshman of the year, as voted by the conference’s coaches. Kabasakalis shares the award with Gustavus Adolphus College’s Sam Falk. This marks the second time a Knight has won the award in three seasons.
Carleton senior Alex Wirta was the lone Knight named to the All-MIAC team for the 2012 year. The All-MIAC nod is the second in his career, as he was also selected after his freshmen season. During conference play, he posted a .361 batting average with a team high 14 RBIs.
After winning both the MIAC regular season and the MIAC playoffs, the Knights embarked on their foray into the NCAA Championships with an opener against Grinnell College.

Unbelievable. That was the only word to describe the conference championships, as the Knights amassed 85 pointsto place fifth, their highest finish at an outdoor championships since 2009. Almost every athlete on the team met or exceeded expectations, making for a lot of happy Carls around the track, down the runways, and beside the rings.
