  • Carleton cross country hosts home meet

    “The race was a lot of fun. The course is beautiful, and running it last weekend will help me find the perfect surge spots and tangents in November, and I can’t wait to re-run it,” Cameron Meikle said. “The fan support is definitely amazing. It’s fun to show off the hard work that we put in. Most people don’t see the miles we put in or the mental games we deal with. The fans make all the early morning runs, hard tempos and track workouts worth it.”

  • How do student-athletes get into the zone?

    "Left sock first, then right sock. Right shoe, then left shoe.

Some players feel that their pregame routines help them play better while others perform pregame routines just to get in the “zone.”"

  • Making our Knights strong: the man behind Carleton athletics

I enjoy going to games and seeing the hard work in the weight room pay off on the field."

    Senior Spotlight: Hayden Tsutsui

    "I think I am just lucky that I have been able to stay relatively healthy for the four years that I played here. I think that I was put in a situation, as a freshman, with the teammates around me, to be successful. I never thought I would be as successful as I was. So I guess I’m proud."
