ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Carleton College women’s track and field team closed out its regular outdoor season at the Tommie Twilight meet in St. Paul, notching more than a few impressive performances.
Carleton College’s Ruth Steinke and Amelia Campbell are making the most of their senior years. Following fantastic performances at the prestigious Drake Relays, the duo was tabbed the MIAC Women's Outdoor Track and Field Athletes-of-the-Week.
Carleton College distance runner Hart Hornor has had some outstanding performances throughout his senior season, but his most recent run may have been his best. Hornor ran to victory in the 10,000-meter run at the prestigious Drake Relays, with a school-record time that is one of the best in MIAC history, and among the best in the nation this season. For his performance, Hornor was honored Wednesday with the MIAC Men's Outdoor Track Athlete-of-the-Week award.
The Carleton College baseball dropped both ends of a home doubleheader versus Augsburg College, falling in game one by a score of 2-1 and game two by a score of 13-2 (7 inn.).
Both the Carleton College women's golf team and senior star Grace Gilmore sat in fourth place halfway through their home tournament, the Carleton Invitational. However, both Gilmore and the Knights rallied over the final 18 holes, with Gilmore winning individual medalist honors and Carleton taking the team title. For her performance, Gilmore was honored Wednesday with her third MIAC Women's Golf Athlete-of-the-Week award of the season.
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.
