In its two previous conference doubleheaders, the Carleton College baseball team let a final-inning lead slip away in game one before getting a stellar pitching performance in game two to earn a split.

Behind a complete-game effort by Nolan Baker, Carleton bounced back and won the nightcap, 3-1.
Carleton College's Shannon Holden notched the second victory of her young career last Friday.

For his performance, Nunez-Frausto was named the MIAC Men's Outdoor Field Athlete-of-the-Week.

Shannon Holden overcame a sub-par ball-striking round, posting a four-over par 77, helping No. 17 Carleton finish in a tie with No. 21 Gustavus Adolphus in a dual match between the two teams.

The Knights and Gusties both finished with 335 team scores on a wind-swept day at Le Sueur Country Club, Gustavus’ home course.
