2012 Spring Issue 5 (May 4, 2012)
It was another week of split squads for the Knights, but they pulled out some great performances anyway. Part of the team went down to Iowa to race at the Drake Relays while the rest went to Gustavus Adolphus to compete in the Drake Alternative.
A regular season that featured 24 matches, 20 wins and visits to nearly every Subway franchise in the Upper Midwest concluded this past weekend as the Carleton men’s tennis team defeated conference foes.
The Carleton Ultimate Team persevered to take first overall in the North Central Regionals. Because of how well teams in the region had performed throughout the regular season, the region had five bids to the national tournament out twenty teams overall.
The Knights’ 5-4 win not only clinched the MIAC championship for Carleton, but also broke a number of impressive traditions the Gusties had been guarding for a couple of decades.
A beautiful day was highlighted with beautiful performances at the Bolstorff Classic meet at Macalaster. Marcus Huderle ‘14 brought home the bacon in the 800m, running 1:55.84 for a second place finish, followed closely by Noah Laack-Veeder ‘15 in 1:57.78.
