Women swim past National foes

It was a fun, exciting and successful weekend for the St. Olaf women’s swimming team at the NCAA Division III National swim meet. The event was hosted by Hope College in Holland, Mich.

Spring madness

Spring is the season of love. As predictable as the changing leaves, these few months of romance and rebirth are forever accentuated by pairs of starry-eyed lovers carousing about the newly green countryside. However, in case your affectionate advances or playful panderings are ill-received this year, may I introduce you to a new lover: March Madness. The Madness is an accommodating mistress, who will return your flirtatious advances with more excitement than you can imagine in your most decadent and uninhibited dreams.

Catching rays over break

For the majority of St. Olaf students, spring break is a time to see family and friends, travel to a warmer climate, or just simply relax. For members of the Ole baseball and softball teams, next week is anything but a vacation: Both squads will travel south to open up their seasons by playing rigorous schedules against some tough competition.

Sloping upward: Skiiers win President's Cup

Last Saturday, the St. Olaf alpine ski team triumphed in Brundage, Idaho. The team combined with the nordic ski team to win the United States Collegiate Ski Association (USCSA)’s President’s Cup, which is a combined nordic, alpine and snowboard title.

Oles fall in close match

Despite a solid effort and several close matches, the St. Olaf women’s tennis team fell to St. Thomas 5-4 last Friday in Owatonna.

St. Thomas rolls over tennis

In sports, it is generally advantageous to win the last match before a long layoff. Unfortunately, the St. Olaf men’s tennis team will enjoy no such luxury.
