Carleton dropped one spot to 21st in the most recent Golf World/Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) Division III coaches poll. The Knights, fresh off setting an 18-hole school record in the UC-Santa Cruz Invitational’s final round, is one of three MIAC schools in the rankings. University of St. Thomas sits 15th while Gustavus Adolphus College is 20th.
The Carleton College softball team will have to wait a bit longer to play its MIAC opener as the Knights had two doubleheaders postponed on Wednesday. The Knights were scheduled to play at Saint Mary’s University today, but those games have been pushed back due to poor field conditions. Additionally, the team announced that Saturday’s home doubleheader against Concordia College has also been postponed.
The Carleton College baseball team won three of its four games last week, with senior catcher Jeff Dsida supremely setting the table from the leadoff spot. In the four games, Dsida batted .636 (7-for-11) with a 1.091 slugging percentage, six runs scored, three doubles, a triple, two RBI and no strikeouts. He hit safely in each game to extend his hitting streak to eight games. For his performance, Dsida was named the MIAC Baseball Player-of-the-Week.
Put two more tallies onto Mother Nature’s side of the scorecard. Monday’s baseball doubleheader between the Carleton College baseball team and Martin Luther College has been postponed due to rain and wet field conditions. Afternoon high temperatures in south central Minnesota are forecasted to be in the 60s, but morning rain coupled with wet field conditions forced the re-scheduling of the non-conference twinbill until Monday, April 14.
Shannon Holden carded a three-over par 75 on Sunday and Taylor Wells added a 76 in leading the Carleton College women’s golf team to a record 312 team score in the second round of action at the UC-Santa Cruz Spring Invitational. Even the top 18-hole performance in program annals was not enough to vault the No. 20-ranked Knights over a pair of top-15 squads as Carleton finished in third place, 18 shots behind No. 14 George Fox (Ore.) University and a dozen back of No. 12 University of the Redlands.
Taylor Wells and Geraldine Tellbuescher both posted seven-over par 79s at lead Carleton to a 329 team score, which left the No. 20 Knights 13 shots back of 14th-ranked George Fox (Ore.) and 10 behind 12th-ranked Redlands (Calif.) after the UC-Santa Cruz Invite's first round.
The Carleton College baseball team received a stellar outing from starter Jack Violetta and notched a come-from-behind victory, topping host Nebraska Wesleyan University, 3-2 in 10 innings. Violetta improved to 2-0 this season as he collected eight strikeouts without a walk over his 9.0 innings on the hill.
The Carleton College men’s tennis went 1-1 on the final day of play on the team’s annual spring break trip. After dropping a 7-2 result to national No. 29 University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, the Knights closed their South Carolina spree with a 9-0 triumph over Concordia University Wisconsin.
The Carleton College women’s tennis team saw its season-opening win streak against Division III opponents snapped at 10 matches as the Knights dropped their spring break finale, 8-1, to national No. 10 DePauw University. Senior Molly Hemes tallied the Knights’ lone point with her solid 6-4, 6-2 triumph at fourth singles.
The Carleton College softball team wrapped up its spring break trip on Wednesday, and the Knights were swept by University of Northwestern Ohio by scores of 11-2 (5 inn.) and 9-1 (6 inn.). Senior Kaitlin Bagley had the best statistical performance for Carleton as she contributed her second straight three-hit day.
Paired together for the first time since the ITA regional in September, Andrew Hwang and Erik Johnson teamed up for an 8-5 victory at first doubles. The momentum from that triumph was short-lived, however, as the Knights absorbed a 6-3 setback to a regionally-ranked Colby College squad.
The Carleton College baseball team wrapped up the Arizona portion of its spring break trip with a Thursday morning contest against Oberlin College. David Stillerman had a team-best three hits in the back-and-forth affair, in which the Yeomen prevailed by an 11-8 tally.
After starting Tuesday with a 7-2 victory over Centre College, the Carleton College men’s tennis team returned to the courts that night to face Oberlin College. The Knights engaged in one of the lengthier matches—if not the longest—in team history before eventually finishing their triumph over the Yeoman on Wednesday by a 6-3 tally.
First-years Caitlin Shea and Caroline Greenberg combined for the victory at third doubles, and both also won during singles play as the Carleton College women’s tennis team cruised to a 9-0 sweep of Concordia University Wisconsin.
Senior Kevin Johnson threw a complete game in his second start of the season to defeat Luther College and starting pitcher Carlos Pineda, who pitched Curacao to a Little League World Series championship in 2004. Hayden Tsutsui reached base three times as the Knights won 7-4 for their fifth win of the season.
It was another tough day on the diamond for the Carleton College softball team as the Knights dropped a pair of non-conference games. The day began with a 6-1 loss to University of Chicago and concluded with a 12-4 (6 innings) setback versus Lawrence University. Micaela LaRose and Kaitlin Bagley paced the Knights with three-hit days.

Playing its seventh game in six days, the Carleton College baseball team showed no signs of fatigue, defeating Carthage College by a score of 13-9. Every member of the starting lineup had at least one hit with the top of the Knights order providing the biggest sparks as Jeff Dsida, David Stillerman, and Hayden Tsutsui combined for 11 hits and eight runs.
The Carleton College men’s tennis team reached the midpoint of its annual Spring Break trip after splitting a pair of matches on Monday. The Knights lost 7-2 to regionally-ranked DePauw University but bounced back with a 9-0 triumph over Nebraska Wesleyan.
