    Men’s golf places sixth at St. Olaf Invitational to end season

    In the final meet of their Carleton careers, seniors Alec Roman and Trent Wells led the Knights to a sixth place finish at the St. Olaf Invitational. Roman birdied his final hole to finish tied for second with a two-day score of 156.  Each of the four seniors saw their games improve during their time at Carleton. The Knights have a strong incoming class of first years arriving next year and will look to continue the team’s steady improvement in the MIAC.

    Women’s Tennis finishes regular s­­­­eason, Schmidt undefeated

    The last regular season match for Carleton women’s tennis culminated in a showdown with fellow undefeated team, perennially strong Gustavus Adolphus College, to determine the leader of the MIAC. The Gusties bested the Knights 6-3 in this competition, but Carleton was able to put up a much harder fight than in years.

    Men’s Track seizes Rolex Trophy from Olaf

    The Gustie Invitational proved to be an apt name for the track and field meet Saturday, as the Knights battled fierce winds at Gustavus Adolphus College. Charlie Gamble ’10 led a large contingent of Knights in the 1500 meters, placing second in 4:10.99 behind former MIAC cross country champion Doboul Ruon of St. Olaf. The Knights are idle this weekend as they rest up for next weekend’s MIAC Outdoor Championships, hosted by St. Mary’s University.

    Roach paces Women’s Track at Gustavus, St. Thomas

    Last Saturday the team headed over to Gustavus Adolphus to compete. The highlights of the meet definitely came from the sprinters, as Kelsey Donald ’10 lowered her season’s best times in the 100 and 200.  In the 200 she ran the fastest time that she has in years.  Brooke Granowski ’13, Kyla Walter ’11, Haley Johnson ’13 and Claire Karbon ’13 all bested their seed times as well.  That is quite impressive. n the longest event the Knights competed in Laura Roach ’10 took top honors and Kaitlin Randolph ’12 made her much anticipated debut, placing third with quite a gap between her and fourth place.

  • Michael Sanders

    Sanders and Gamble lead track

    The men’s track and field team traveled to Winona, Minnesota Saturday to compete at the St. Mary’s Open.  The Knights collected three individual victories, setting two track records in the process. Charlie Gamble ’10 started a new winning streak, leading the 5,000 meters from start to finish and breaking 15 minutes for the first time on an outdoor track, running 14:51.75. In the 800 meters, Michael Sanders ’10 proved he does not need a particularly good start to win and set a track record.  The captain had to fight for position in the first 200 meters, but still ran 56 for the first lap and stopped the clock at 1:55.56 for the win.

    Women’s track has success at St. Mary’s

    Last week the women’s track team drove down to Winona, Minnesota to test out the site of the 2010 MIAC Championships.  The track proved to be quite nice in a beautiful setting with the biggest hills I have ever seen in Minnesota.  However, that was not what was foremost on the minds of the Knights competing that day. The day kicked off with a rain delay and then the commencement of some throws and the 10k.  Taylor Fitch ’12 won the 10k, setting a new track record and besting her nearest female competitor by over 1 minute.

    Guess what? Baseball splits two

    To only slightly alter a famous line from the opium-addicted poet Samuel Coleridge, “Cobbers, Cobbers everywhere, but not a one to sweep.  Or get swept by.  Or any MIAC opponent for that matter.”

    Women’s tennis battles rain

    Carleton won four out of the five points needed to finish off a duel with the University of St. Thomas and was stopped in its tracks by cold drizzles last Friday.

    Women’s tennis defeats rival Olaf 6-3, loses to Luther 5-4

    This past week, Knights women’s tennis once again proved they are a force to contend with in the MIAC and in the region as well with a 6-3 win over Northfield rival St. Olaf and an extremely close defeat of 4-5 at the hands of the Luther Norse of Decorah, IA.

    Erlandson sets school record to lead track

    Last Saturday the women’s track team headed across the river for a day of exciting competition. The day included a school record, NCAA provisional qualifying mark, and a number of personal best performances—not too bad for the second meet of the season.
    The school record came in the pole vault, as Megan Erlandson ’12 soared over 10 feet 8 inches.
