'Dugout Girls' boost squad: Student managers valuable assets to Ole baseball

What wins championships? Is it dominating pitching? Clutch hitting? Outstanding defense? Or perhaps something more?

Oles hit Tommie roadblock: Baseball splits with Saints after St. Thomas sweep

What appeared to be a dream season for the St. Olaf baseball team suddenly got a lot more interesting.

Inside the Lines: An invitation to A-Rod

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."

Tennis eliminated from MIACs

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.

Men accomplish feat

Competing at the St. John's Quadrangular Saturday, the St. Olaf men's track and field team pulled off a remarkable feat, sweeping the top six places in the 400-meter run at the unscored meet.

Better luck next year

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.

Women fourth at Macalester Invitational

On Saturday, the St. Olaf women's track and field team finished fourth at the Macalester Invitational in St. Paul.

Traynor sixth overall

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.
