With their fourth straight doubleheader sweep and ninth straight overall win, all in the MIAC, the St. Olaf baseball team climbed to second in the conference standings and moved within one Augsburg loss of clinching a playoff berth.

Despite snow and cold at Sunday's St. John's Invitational, St. Olaf's top performers were John Schantzen '10, who placed first in the shot put at 15.72 meters, and Bobby Anderson '08, who placed first in the high jump at 1.92 meters. Although a very good throw provisionally qualified Schantzen for Nationals, it didn't beat his personal best.

Softball completes season with sweep

A bizarre week of late April snow, a change in venue, a postponement and a cancellation concluded with the St. Olaf softball team sweeping Carleton College 9-5 and 8-5 on Monday to wrap up their regular-season schedule.

Track canceled again

This spring's weather has been unkind to the women's track and field team. This year, they have only had one outdoor meet, and are looking at their final meet this week.
