    Women’s track looks good in intrasquad meet

    Women's hoops back on track

    Heading into the second half of the MIAC season, the Knights have begun to attack the second round of opponents with a fresh start and new mindset. Coach Cassie Kosiba has now faced almost every opponent in the MIAC during her first year as head coach, and is better prepared to attack previous defeats with a new attitude and angle.  Though Carleton (4-10, 3-8 MIAC) had struggled over the last several games, standing 11th in the conference, the second round of opponents began Wednesday with Hamline (4-8 MIAC), whom the Knights defeated in December in a 77-67 season opener upset.

After Wednesday nights’ 60-56 grinder against Bethel, Carleton stands second in the MIAC standings at 6-1 (7-5 overall).  Be sure to head to West Gym on Monday when the Knights welcome the up-and-coming Macalester Scots to town for a 7:30 p.m. contest.

    After early wins, women’s hoops feels pain of tough schedule

    Success has yet to reach the present for the Knights, as Carleton has struggled in conference play, losing six straight after starting the season 3-2. At 2-6 (3-8 overall), the Knights are tied for ninth in the MIAC standings.  The schedule will soften for the Knights on Saturday when they head to St. Peter to take on Gustavus (5-7, 4-5 MIAC). The next home action for Carleton comes on Wednesday against Hamline, with tip-off scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at West Gym.
