    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.

    Women’s track looks good in intrasquad meet

    The track team got a first glimpse of its abilities last Friday night at the Carleton Singular. The intrasquad competition was quite successful, hinting at great things to come. The most exciting thing about the meet was probably that the team has throwers this indoor season.

    Men’s hoops heads into finals rematch with GAC in second place

    The Carleton men’s basketball team is off to an admirable start.  After dropping their first three games, two of them ambitious match-ups with Division-II squads in Hawaii, the Knights have returned home and elevated their play for the conference season. 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.

    Men follow youth to improvement at Regionals

    The Carleton men’s cross country team ended its season by placing 12th out of 26 teams at the NCAA Central Region Meet on November 13, 2010.  The Knights improved one place from last year’s 13th place Regionals finish. It was a particularly impressive achievement for the Knights as they were without their top returning runner from last year, John Davis ’11.

    Cross Country teams dress up, run fast at Great Karhu Shoe Race: Women channel inner Avatars

    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.
