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

    Last Thursday the Oles came to this side of the river for the Great Karhu Shoe race. This is a cutthroat competition between the Carls and the Oles for a pair of Karhu shoes. After last year’s swine flu debacle, the Carls ended up with a shoe and the Oles had a shoe. Fearful for the life of the shoe, the Carls hid it and it is still hidden.

    If the St. Olaf men’s cross country team learned one thing last Thursday in the upper arboretum, it was that although they could beat the Carls in a race, they were no match when it came to style. The Oles defeated Carleton soundly in the Karhu Shoe Race on November 4, but the Fellahs showed much more heart. Clad in t-shirts and shorts, the Ole racers were outclassed by the costumed Carls.
