The annual Rolex Classic took place on Tuesday as the Carleton College men’s track and field team visited crosstown rival St. Olaf College for a dual meet. The Knights won four events on the day.
The Carleton women's tennis team pulled off a huge win Saturday to earn a share of the MIAC championship and the top seed in the conference tournament. Senior Kayla Becich won both her singles and doubles matches in the title-winning, 7-2, triumph over Gustavus Adolphus. For her performance, Becich was honored Tuesday with her second MIAC Women's Tennis Athlete-of-the-Week award of the 2016 season.
In its final MIAC doubleheader of the season, the Carleton College softball team split a pair of road games against Bethel University. Both games ended with an 11-3 score. Sophomore Molly Steinberg went 7-for-7 on the day, including two doubles and four RBI. This was just the third time in the past 12 seasons that a Knight tallied at least seven hits in a single day’s work.
Grace Gilmore and Ziyi Wang have been selected to represent Carleton at the 2016 NCAA Division III Women’s Golf Championships on May 10-13 in Houston, Texas, at Bay Oaks Country Club.
Grace Gilmore fired a final-round, four-over par 77, helping herself and the Knights to rally for victories in the Carleton Invitational. Ziyi Wang was one shot back of Gilmore, her third consecutive second-place finish this spring.
The Carleton College men’s tennis team certainly has a flair for the dramatic as the Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit after doubles and defeated Saint John’s University, 5-4 on Sunday. This was the sixth time this season that the Knights had erased a post-doubles deficit to secure the team victory.
The Carleton College baseball team limited St. Scholastica to only four hits—all singles—but the Knights were unable to come away with a win, losing a hard fought pitchers’ duel, 2-1, in the squad’s final non-conference action of the spring.
It was Senior Day at Ele Hansen Field as the Carleton College softball team saluted the careers of its three seniors: Keelin Davis, Nicole Magats, and Emily Starr. Unfortunately, the Knights were not able to celebrate with a victory as visiting Gustavus Adolphus College left town with victories by scores of 5-2 and 8-2.
Seniors Mikayla Becich, Grace Davis, and Joyce Yu each won in both singles and doubles to lead the Carleton College women’s tennis team to a 7-2 road victory over national No. 36 Gustavus Adolphus College. With the win, the Knights clinched a share of the MIAC regular-season title. This is Carleton’s sixth conference crown and third over the last five seasons.
The Carleton College baseball team earned a split against Gustavus Adolphus College on Saturday as the Knights now hold a 7-9 record in the MIAC. After being shut out in the first game and by a final score of 5-0, the Knights turned the tables on the Gusties in game two with a 4-0 victory.
The Carleton College women’s track and field team split up on Saturday, sending a handful of athletes to compete against some of the best collegiate and Olympian runners in the country at the 2016 Drake Relays in Des Moines. The majority of the Knights headed the opposite direction and took part in the Janis Rider Invitational at Macalester College.
After wet weather forced the Knights final regular-season home match to move indoors in nearby Lakeville, the Carleton College men’s tennis team rallied in singles to defeat St. Thomas, 5-4. The victory guarantees another home match for the Carleton seniors as the result allowed the Knights to clinch the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in next week’s MIAC Playoffs. The Knights will host a semifinal match on Friday, May 6.
Competing against a number of Division I racers at the prestigious Drake Relays, Carleton College men’s track and field stars Jerry Cook-Gallardo and Hart Hornor finished in first place in their respective races on Thursday. The rest of the Carleton College men’s track and field team competed at the Macalester Twilight Meet in St. Paul.
With a strong finish to the seven-event competition, Carleton College senior Amelia Campbell totaled 4,870 points and placed fourth in the heptathlon at the 107th Drake Relays. Her point total is second in Division III this season. Of the 18 athletes to complete the heptathlon, 11 of them came from NCAA Division I programs, one is from a D-II program, three from D-III schools, and three unattached competitors including two with multiple All-America awards to their credit.
The Carleton College softball team returned to action on Wednesday with a road doubleheader against the College of Saint Benedict. An early lead and late rally by the Knights fell just short in game one as they lost 4-3. In game two, an eight-run third inning propelled the Blazers to a 10-2 (6 inn.) triumph in the nightcap.
The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced the members of the 2016 NFF Hampshire Honor Society, and four Knights made the list. The Carleton seniors that received this honor are fullback Greg Erlandson, defensive end Mitch Heflin, tight end Matt Mensinger, and defensive lineman Omar Reyes.
Eight members of the Carleton College track and field teams are slated to participate at the 107th Drake Relays from April 27-30. Amelia Campbell, Emma Grisanzio, Kayla McKinsey, Tonya Piergies, Elsa Sandeno, and Ruth Steinke will represent the women’s program, while sophomore Jerry Cook-Gallardo and senior Hart Hornor will race for the men’s team.
The Carleton College baseball team dropped both ends of its doubleheader at Saint Mary’s University on Tuesday, falling 2-0 in a pitchers' duel to start the day before dropping a 13-9 result as both offense finally awoke late in game two.
Four of the five Knights in the lineup turned in their best rounds of the year, while the other, senior Brian Herlihy, posted the second-best 54-hole score of his career as the Carleton College men’s golf team took part in the two-day, 54-hole Saint John’s Spring Invitational.
Ziyi Wang rolled in three birdies, firing a two-over par 74 to lead Carleton to its third win of the season at the BU Royal Match. Grace Gilmore added a 75 and Geraldine Tellbuescher a 76 as the Knights ended at 306, matching a season low team score.
