    Knights stay tied for first with trio of wins

    After last Wednesday’s big win over St. Thomas propelled the Carleton men’s basketball team into a tie for first place in the MIAC, the Knights hit the road this week and preyed on the conference’s cellar-dwellers like lions picking off the weakest wildebeests of the herd.

    Weaver reaches 1,000-point milestone during 1-2 week for women’s hoops

    The Knights struggled through another up-and-down week of MIAC basketball. Carleton (5-14, 4-12 MIAC) pulled out an exciting comeback victory on Monday at St. Kate’s, but it was sandwiched by losses to Augsburg on Saturday and first-place Saint Benedict on Wednesday. Ally Weaver ’11 scored the 1,000th point of her career.

    Comeback Knights become Drama Kings on road

    The Carleton men’s basketball team must have stopped by the Guthrie Theater before their game at Augsburg on Saturday, because the Knights have shown off a remarkable flair for the dramatic ever since.  In Saturday’s clash with the Auggies and again on Wednesday at Saint John’s, Carleton needed a big second-half comeback to keep the game close. Heading into the weekend, Carleton finds itself trailing the Tommies by 1.5 games and leading the third-place Gusties by an equal measure. All that could change the coming week, however, as the Knights host Gustavus tomorrow at 3 p.m. then welcome St. Thomas on Wednesday night at 7:30.

  • Knight trio races at Olaf for women’s track

    Most of the women’s track team took last week off, but a few brave souls ventured across the river to partake in a little competition at St. Olaf College. Those athletes competed extremely well and the ones that stayed home are proud of their performances.
