The Carleton College softball team concluded its spring break trip with a pair of frustrating defeats. Missed opportunities haunted the Knights in a 4-3 walkoff loss to Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) to begin the day. Carleton then managed only three hits in a 7-3 setback at the hands of Middlebury College.
Quite possibly because the Knights are off to the best start in program history, the Carleton College men’s tennis team got to play under the lights on Wednesday and prevailed, 7-2, in a primetime matchup against Elmhurst College. This was the Knights’ fourth victory over a regionally-ranked opponent this season as the Bluejays were slotted at No. 13 in the central region.
Carleton College catcher Hayden Tsutsui now owns the program's highest recorded career hit total, but his 3-for-4 day was not enough to spark the Knights to victory as the squad dropped its spring trip finale against Oberlin College by a final tally of 7-5.
The No. 31-ranked Carleton College women’s tennis team saw its first competition in 18 days but showed little sign of rust as the Knights handed host University of Puerto Rico-San Piedras, a Division II program, a 9-0 defeat. The Knights improved to 8-1 overall and bested a D-II squad for the third time this season.
The Carleton College baseball took out its frustrations after three straight narrow defeats by pounding out 16 hits, including 10 of the extra-base variety, in a 16-7 triumph over Oberlin College. The Knights clubbed three home runs in a contest for the first time since achieving the feat against Minensota-Morris on May 6, 2008.
The Carleton College softball team had plenty of scoring chances on Tuesday but could not find enough clutch hits as the Knights stranded a total of 20 baserunners on the day—including leaving the bases loaded three times—in absorbing a 5-2 setback against the University of Chicago and a 7-3 loss to West Virginia Tech.
The Carleton College men’s tennis carried an 11-match win streak into Tuesday’s tripleheader, and the Knights remained undefeated after posting identical 9-0 victories over North Central (Ill.) College, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, and Buena Vista University. Every member of the squad got into the win column at least one time on the day.
The Carleton College men’s tennis team extended its season-opening win streak to 11 matches with a decisive 9-0 triumph over Nebraska Wesleyan University. The day’s second contest versus Elmhurst College was postponed by rain and re-scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
Defensive miscues and an absence of timely hitting proved to be too much for the Carleton College baseball team to overcome as the Knights dropped a contest with Carthage College by a final tally of 8-5 despite a 4-for-5 day at the plate from junior Hayden Tsutsui, who belted his fourth home run of the season. Carleton left a total of 10 runners on base throughout the course of the game, which proved pivotal to the outcome.
The Carleton College softball team collected a dozen hits—all singles—during its two games on Sunday afternoon, but could muster only two runs total in falling 6-2 to Hamilton (N.Y.) College and 1-0 to Carthage (Wis.) College. The setbacks dropped the Knights to 5-5 on the season.
In a matchup of academic powerhouses, the Carleton College baseball team dropped a 5-4 decision to Williams College. The Knights slipped to 1-3 on their annual spring trip as they absorbed their fourth one-run setback of the season.
Five members of the Carleton College men’s track and field team wrapped up the squad’s time in Southern California by taking part in the Westmont College Collegiate meet on Saturday. Jerry Cook-Gallardo and Jonah Barry highlighted the day with career-best performances.
Sophomore Maria Wetzel became the latest in a long line of Carleton College swimmers to shine on the national scene when she received All-America Honorable Mention after finishing 16th in the 200-yard backstroke at the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships. Carleton women have now turned in 55 All-America or All-America Honorable Mention performances since 1999.
Kelsey Moede and Shannon Holden both fired five-over par 76, leading fourth-ranked Carleton to a 307 team score in winning the Battle at Bear Creek. Geraldine Tellbuescher added a 77, while Taylor Wells and Grace Gilmore posted identical 78s. The event was held at Chandler’s Bear Creek Golf Complex on the Bear Course.
The Carleton College men’s tennis team played its first outdoor match of the 2015 season on Friday as the Knights opened their Spring Break trip with a 5-4 triumph over regionally-ranked Allegheny (Pa.) College.
