One for the Ages: Oles stage largest comeback in team history, upend Luther

Do you believe in miracles!? That was the question posed by broadcaster Al Michaels after Team USAs improbable victory over the Soviet hockey team during the 1980 Winter Olympics. But the sentiment could have just as been expressed following the St. Olaf football teams amazing 32-31 come-from-behind victory over the Luther Norse last Saturday.

Great things to come: mens cross country tunes up for season

The 2004 mens cross country season opened with a strong showing at the 33rd annual Luther Invitational, a junior varsity event this past weekend at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Collin Hodges 08 and Matthew Keller 08 led the Ole effort, with teammates Dave Stoy 05 and Tom Cruse 07 following close on their heels.

Volleyball splits at Invite

While the St. Olaf womens volleyball team was not dominant at last weekends 23rd annual Augsburg Invitational, they were at least symmetrical. The 4-4 Oles sandwiched wins against St. Scholastica and the host Auggies between bookend losses to UW-Stout and UW-Eau Claire en route to a fourth place finish.

Magic at Manitou

Much to my chagrin, I awoke last Saturday morning earlier than I had hoped. Unable to go back to bed, I dressed and departed for the library. As I waited for the Mohn Hall elevator, I noticed St. Olaf running back Bobby Andrade 07 sitting nearby. As a football enthusiast and sports writer, I was unable to resist an opportunity to discuss the season opener with the former LA Times Redzone Player of the Year. As our conversation concluded, I offered a parting Good luck, to which Bobby replied, It should be a good game. Little did he know what lay in store.

Women victorious in opener

The St. Olaf womens cross country team got off to a strong start at the Carleton Invitational this weekend, notching an impressive first place finish. The Oles outran MIAC foes Carleton, Augsburg, St. Kates, and Hamline. St. Olafs top finisher was Stephanie Block 07, who finished with a time of 23:26, good enough for a 4th place finish overall.
