George Bernard Shaw once said of baseball, "What is both surprising and delightful is that spectators are allowed, and even expected, to join in the vocal part of the game... There is no reason why the field should not try to put the batsman off his stroke at the critical moment by neatly timed disparagements of his wife's fidelity and his mother's respectability."
The St. Olaf women's tennis team had their season extinguished on a gorgeous Friday morning after St. Ben's squeaked past them 5-4 in the first round of the MIAC playoff tournament. The Oles did, however, jump out to a quick 2-0 lead, winning close doubles matches to start their playoff campaign.
The St. Olaf fastpitch team finished off their season on Tuesday with two losses to St. Mary's, a playoff-caliber MIAC team. The Oles dropped the first game 6-2 and the second 8-5. In circumstances typical of this often rain-delayed season, the home doubleheader had been postponed twice previously due to weather.
The St. Olaf men's golf team finished fourth out of six teams at last weekend's Augsburg Spring Classic. The Oles were paced by Mack Traynor '09, who finished 6th with a 76-78, and captain Brian DeLaitsch '07.
