Women's track team hosts Manitou Classic

If you were on campus last Saturday, you may have heard the dull drones of the announcer’'s microphones echoing from Manitou Field, where the St. Olaf women'’s track and field team hosted a meet featuring 20 schools and 600 athletes.

Tennis wins two of final three

The St. Olaf women’'s tennis squad secured the number six seed in the MIAC playoff tournament, which is set to take place this weekend at St. Olaf, with a pair of road wins on Thursday and Saturday.

The 2007 baseball season is nearly 20 games old, but those handful of contests (approximately 12 percent of the entire season) have taught us a lot. We know that Barry Bonds will likely break Hank Aaron's career home run record sooner rather than later (he has six homers already this season), Alex Rodriguez has more talent in his little pinky than you do in your entire body (14 home runs already this year!) and Daisuke Matsuzaka may have been a smidge overhyped (but will still be solid).

With a relatively thin squad this year, St. Olaf head track and field coach Bill Thornton decided to take a slightly different approach at Saturday’'s Carleton Relays.

Perfect week for Oles

After seeing their 16-game winning streak snapped last weekend against St. John’'s, the St. Olaf baseball team simply decided to start a new one.

The Ole men’'s tennis team closed out their season on a windy Tuesday afternoon with a lopsided 8-1 loss to a formidable Carleton team at St. Olaf’'s Carlson Courts.

Fastpitch enjoys turnaround

After winning just one of their first ten games, the St. Olaf fastpitch squad has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence during the MIAC season. The Oles used a pair of late rallies to gain two come-from-behind 4-3 victories over Bethel Wednesday afternoon at Mabel Shirley Field.
