The Carleton College swimming and diving teams took part in the two-day competition at the Jean Freeman Invitational hosted by the University of Minnesota. The 17-team field included a trio of NCAA Division I programs: Minnesota, South Dakota State, and University of South Dakota. The biggest highlights of the weekend came on Friday as both Caroline Mather and Maria Wetzel posted NCAA ?B? cut times.
The Carleton College men?s basketball team dropped a second consecutive road contest to open the MIAC schedule, this time falling 62-45 at Saint John?s University. Mitchell Biewen finished with 14 points and was the lone Knight in double figures.
Three players finished in double figures for the Knights, but the Carleton College women?s basketball team could not match the scoring pace of host Saint Benedict as the Blazers shot 57 percent in the contest and prevailed 88-52.
Moriah Arnold became the latest in a long line of All-Region performers for the Carleton College women?s soccer program. The senior defender was voted to the National Soccer Coaches? Association of America (NSCAA) All-North Region Third Team, becoming the Knights? 14th All-Region performer since 2010.
Kevin Grow notched his second straight double-double?tallying game highs of 20 points and 11 rebounds?and Freddie Gillespie added a 19-point, nine-rebound effort, but it was not enough to offset hot perimeter shooting by host Saint Mary?s University as the Cardinals topped the Knights, 74-67 in the conference opener for both programs.
