St. Olaf sent a trio of young talent to the 2008 NCAA Division III Women's Swimming and Diving Championships held last weekend at Miami University of Ohio. First-year swimmers Alli Beardsley and Kjersten Grinde, along with diver Alyssa Germeroth '10 rounded out the Ole fleet.
After a winter in which neither of St. Olaf's hockey teams or basketball teams made the playoffs, several athletes from those squads, as well as standouts from other Ole teams, received a variety of postseason honors.
The St. Olaf women's tennis team improved its MIAC conference record to 2 -- 2 after dominating the Concordia Cobbers early Sunday morning to end the indoor season. The women swept doubles play, an area the women struggled in a week ago, and five-of-six singles matches to trounce Concordia 8 -- 1.
The St. Olaf men's tennis squad upended its three-match losing streak with a potent 7 -- 2 win over the Concordia Cobbers Sunday. The men took points in two-of-three doubles matches, and then dominated singles play by winning five of the six remaining matches.
