What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The Prospector — + 12 I Volleyball and by Molly Priddy Staff Writer It's the end of the road for two athletic teams here at Carroll. Both the soccer team and the volleyball team have finished their seasons in the past couple of weeks. The teams have each had successful seasons this year for Carroll, both reaching post season tournament play. The soccer team finished out their run with an impressive 14-4-1 record. The Saints made it to the championship match at the regional tourna­ ment in Portland. They fell just short of moving on to the national tournament in a 1-0 loss to Simon Fraser University. The finished season was the product of hard work and dedication, according to junior mid­ fielder Sarah McLaughlin. \I'm proud of my team. I mean, of course I wish we could have gone to nationals, but we played with every­ soccer season wrap-up thing Wë had and that's all we can do.\ The volleyball team went into the post-season firing on all cylinders. \I think we hit our peak w just at the right time,\ remarked junior medical redshirt Lindsey Lyman. \We're a really strong team and ending this season the way we did gives us a good jump off point for next season.\ The Saints had a lukewarm record of 13-14 overall, and 6-8 in the Frontier Conference before the post-season began. They were unim­ pressed by their performance earlier in the sea­ son, but they pulled their game together when it mattered. They took second place at the confer­ ence tournament, losing the thrilling five-game match to Westminster College. The volleyball team went on to take fourth place at the regional tournament the following week in Salt Lake City.

Neither team had really good opportuni­ ties. Dionne netted the goal after a turnover by the Saints, who were coming off a 2-0 win over Concordia, Ore. in the tourna­ ment’s first round. “I think we had a good match yesterday and sound energy and good enthusiasm today,” Heimenz said. “I think we had a good match yesterday. We kind of ran out of gas toward the end and you couldn’t ask anything more as a coach.” Heimenz was especially pleased with the play of senior Julianne Hedden. Simon Fraser received an auto­ matic berth in the NAIA national tournament in Olathe, Kan. later this month. The Saints could receive an at- large berth, but the chance is remote. “That is for the raters and com­ mittee to decide,” Heimenz said. “We just try to get a good result.” By IR Staff The Carroll College volleyball team was finally stopped in their post-season run, falling in the Regional Tournament semifinal round. The Saints fell to Northwest University Friday 30- 25, 30-27, 30-25. “It’s disappointing, but we’ve come along way.” Carroll head coach Moe Boyle said. “I don’t think the team has anything to hang its head about.” Tiffany Rochelle led Carroll with nine kills on the night. Rosie Meyn and Laurie Chambers each had eight against the Eagles. Katie Polette, a sophomroe from Helena, had 30 of Carroll’s 35 assists. Natalie Solomon recorded 16 digs, while teammate Valissa Sneck chipped in with 15. Meyn and Amber Sanchez combined for 14 digs on the night. ! LITHIA Ætn,ericf \'f5 Csfcr Z Trv\ck ..
