Hyped as one of the biggest MIAC series of the year, Tuesday afternoons matchup between St. Olaf and St. Thomas only served to prolong the drama between two teams still vying for the conference crown.
When St. Olaf football head coach Chris Meidt held his first team meeting in the spring of 2002, the room was all but empty. In a conference where the best teams contain around 100 athletes, with talented players three or even four deep at most positions, Meidt did not even have a second team.
The St. Olaf mens tennis team finished off their spring season at the MIAC championships on Friday and Saturday. At Carleton College the Oles played matches against Macalester, Carleton, Hamline, and St. Thomas, returning home at 11 p.m. Saturday night.
With the Minnesota Twins playing some of their worst baseball since the Dark Years of 1993-2000 (perhaps there are a few of you out there that still remember those infamous days of Scott Stahoviak, Rich Robertson and Butch Huskey), for much of the past month, baseball fans were able to console themselves with the fact that the Twins stadium deal seemed to be making real progress in the state legislature.
