    The wins keep piling up for the Carleton men's basketball team, but the Knights can't look back now. Carleton notched two more tough victories this week, holding off an annoying St. Olaf squad on Saturday 72-69, a win which will keep the Goat Trophy on the right side of town for another year, before locking down on Concordia on Wednesday night for a 60-51 triumph. Be sure to follow the Knights as they hit the road next week.

    Women's track take second, Erlandson breaks record

    The competition for indoor track began last Friday night with Carleton hosting St. Olaf College and Hamline University. It was a spectacular first outing for the team with lots of positives all around, including a number of events won, a school record, and a number of personal bests.
