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.

Page 5 Four different team s , each with a strong desire to win bv katie beail September 26th marked the end of the golf team’s Fall season at the Rocky Mountain College Invitational. Assistant Coach Ben­ nett noted several key athletes on the golf team. “Andrea Tucker has been fairly solid all year so far and has the potential to finish in the top 10 in tournaments. On the men’s side, Junior Chris King leads all Saint golfers with a 78.33 scoring average in tournament play. He is followed by juniors John Beltrone (80.8) and BenWaiss (82.1)” In the pre-season the Saints plan to “hopefully gain some mo­ mentum into next year... individu­ ally we are going to see if we can get some top 10 performances and hopefully take some golfers to the regional golf tournament.” Carroll football has posted a solid 8-1 record, outscoring its opponents by 234-48 points thus far in the season. The only loss for the Saints came at the hands of the 9th ranked team in the nation, MSU-Northem, in a defensive battle that ended in a 3-10 loss. The football team will take on Montana Tech followed by Rocky Mountain College before the start of the NAIA playoffs on November 18th. Saint volleyball took down number 22 ranked Westminster College (3-1) and disposed of UM- Westem (3-0) to post a season re­ cord of 8-4 in conference play and 18-7 overall. The Saints victory over Westminster was a complete team effort and Coach Maureen Boyle noted the key blocking of Tiffany Rochelle, Natalie Solomon, and Laurie Chambers. The volley­ ball team has one final conference game against Rocky Mountain be­ fore the conference championship tournament begins November 10th. Carroll women’s basketball has started out the season running strong with a 4-0 start over the University of Regina, University of Lethbridge, and the University of Saskatchewan. Carroll also re­ ceived recognition through the play of junior Jolene Fuzesy who was named the Frontier Conference’s women player of the week after pouring in 24 points in each of the games Carroll played against the University of Regina. The team will begin play against confer­ ence teams November 3rd at the Montana National Guard Classic. The theme for Carroll basketball must be posting strong early season records, and the men’s basketball team has done just that by defeat­ ing Lethbridge, Thompson Rivers University, University of Regina, and Brandon University to begin the season. Coach Gary Turcott describes his team as exhibiting “excellent size and enough quick­ ness to play the way we want to play.. .we are getting outstanding leadership from our two captains Dallas Leslie and Eric Henkel.” Up next the Saints look to take on Point Loma and Vanguard Univer­ sity. Soccer girls to reaionals? column bv katie beali Above: Junior’ Katie Bea\ The 2006 Carroll women’s soccer season begins to seek definition of its season this week in Portland, Oregon at the Region I Tournament. The winner of the tournament automatically qualifies for the NAIA National tournament in Olathe, Kansas. Nothing has been handed to the Saints soccer team this sea­ son as they faced one of the most demanding schedules of any NAIA soccer team. The team had only seven home games and played four of the top ten teams in the nation. What would seem overwhelm­ ing to any typical soccer team has become the norm for the Carroll women. Whereas most student-ath­ letes would cringe at a long bus ride on the overwhelmingly un­ eventful drive to North Dakota the Saints see it as the road trip nec­ essary to gamer a win and come one step closer to the regional and national tournament. The team is composed of a wide range of players, from hometown athletes to the out-of­ staters, from the vocal scream-to- motivate-others personality types “Soccer” continued on page 16 Saints sweep senior night bv maaaie mccall The Saints volleyball team swept UM-Western in three games during “Senior Night.” The seven seniors recog­ nized prior to the game were Chris­ tie Tyrell, Tiffany Rochelle, Natalie Solomon, Amber Sanchez, Laurie Chambers, Valissa Sneck and Katie Polette. conference game against Rocky on Friday, Nov. 3. A win against Rocky means they will go into tournament play ranked 3rd. “Our main goal is to go to regionals,” said Tiffany Rochelle, middle hitter. “The majority of the team thinks we can take the tourna­ ment.” Carroll’s conference record is 9-4 and 19-7 overall. “We are a very versatile group,” said Amber Sanchez, defensive specialist. “We are very comfortable with how we play.” It is easy to see their ver­ satility as you watch them play. Christy Tyrell, a defensive special­ ist, has played both setter and right side hitter. The team has one more For seven seniors playing together for the last time, their per­ formance in the tournament will be an important culmination of their volleyball experience and they are going into it with a positive atti­ tude. “We feel like we are peak­ ing at the right time,” said Ro­ chelle. “There is nobody else I would rather be playing with.” Ip ■aRRo&i Volleyball girls take a break from practice to smile for the camera.
