Lose-lose playoff proposition: Oles fall short in overtime, miss upset

After 13 years of playoff drought, the St. Olaf men’s hockey team has earned two consecutive playoff berths. The Oles finished this season with an 8-4-4 conference record, (14-7-6 overall) ranking fourth in the MIAC – one better than their fifth place finish last season.

Women end on low note

Saturday’s conference championship at Concordia in Moorhead, Minn. proved to be a disappointment for the St. Olaf women’s indoor track and field team. The women placed tenth out of 12 teams, scoring just 30 points. St. Thomas won their sixth consecutive conference championship with 140 points, followed by Concordia with 117.
