  • A Karhu running shoe

    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.

    Cross Country teams dress up, run fast at Great Karhu Shoe Race: Men set new bests, outcostume Oles

    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.

    Women's Soccer Team, soccer actionThe Carleton women’s soccer team finished off a historic regular season on Saturday, beating St. Olaf 2-0 to clinch the team’s first MIAC regular season title since 1982. The top-seeded Knights carried momentum over to their playoff semifinal match on Wednesday, beating St. Benedict 2-1 in overtime on a last-second goal by Liz Arakaki ‘11.

    Carleton will now host second-seeded Concordia tomorrow in the MIAC Playoff Championship. A win would give the Knights their third consecutive playoff title and an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. Unbeaten in its last 14 matches, Carleton is now ranked 16th nationally.

    Last Saturday, teams from around Minnesota converged at Como Park in St. Paul for the MIAC Championships, affectionately known as “Konference.”  On a beautiful, windy day, Hamline University took home first place, scoring an impressive 31 points, easily outdistancing second-place St. Olaf by 48 points.

  • Men’s Soccer ends season in semifinal heartbreak: Augsburg boots Knights from playoffs, 1-0, as team bids farewell to senior stars

    All good things must come to an end, but that doesn’t make it any easier when the end does come.
    Tuesday night saw the 2010 season conclude for the Carleton men’s soccer team as the Knights fell to Augsburg in the MIAC semifinals, 1-0. Though the Knights did not win a fourth consecutive MIAC title this fall, many Carleton fans’ last memories of this squad will be good ones, as the Knights defeated rival St. Olaf 3-1 at home in Saturday’s regular season finale.

    Football own worst enemy in Senior Day loss

    After mimicking dust in the wind for a five-week stretch as the nomads of the MIAC, the Carleton football team made its triumphant return to Laird Stadium in time to observe last Saturday’s Senior Day and give its 15 elder statesmen a proper farewell. It would have made for quite the glorious sendoff if the team were able to earn the seniors the program’s first ever win over Saint John’s University. If only.

    Soccer teams primed for decisive Olaf matches: Men struggle with Wisconson foes, await Oles

    As has been the case more often than not this season, the Carleton men’s soccer team spent the entire weekend on the road, wrenched away from both a mesmerizing Ebony performance and a predictably-sweaty Sayles dance by an unfortunately-timed schedule. This time, the Knights traveled to exotic Wisconsin, beating Ripon College on Saturday before falling to No. 12 UW-Oshkosh the following day.

    Cross Country teams set for MIAC ‘Ships: Men hope youth equals success

    The temperature is dropping, winds are rising, even Minnesotans are shivering, and the Carleton men’s cross country team is preparing to take to the course on Saturday to compete in the MIAC Championships in St. Paul. The men’s race takes place at Como Park in St. Paul and will begin at 2:15 p.m., while the women’s race will follow at 3 p.m.

    Soccer teams primed for decisive Olaf matches: Women top UW-La Crosse before prep week

    Last Wednesday night, after a packed Parents’ Weekend, the Carleton women’s soccer team faced the challenge of playing their third game over the span of five days. But after making the two and a half hour trek out to University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, you never would have guessed it. Embodying their motto, All Day, All (K)night, the Knights demonstrated their ability to perform at any point during the Earth’s revolution, as this game marked only their second competition under stadium lights. The Eagles of La Crosse proved to be an endangered species, as Carleton found the back of their net four times.
