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 team start­ ed hitting the ground running, literally, and did not stop until the end. Dur­ ing the Saints’ first home meet they swept the The women’s team huddles competition, beating out University of Great Falls, who were rated in the NAIA national polls. “There are four things that each of our athletes needed to be before we recruited them,” said head coach Bill Ballinger, “they needed to be good students, have a desire to complete, like being a part of a team, and like Carroll.” Most can see this was a great strategy in choosing the team. With common goals and ideals, they have truly come together as a team. One section of the Cross Country’s vision statement for their inaugural season was for the team to be “remembered as building a strong foundation for a successful running program.” By together before a race. looking at the success the team has had this year, they have done more than enough to meet their goal. While this year has been a suc­ cessful season, the Saints are still looking for more. “Championships are built during the winter, spring, and summer, and we haven’t had that time; but next year having that time will help our team tremen­ dously,” said Ballinger. The regional championships are November 3rd, so when you seeing you running saints wish them luck! And keep an eye out for those running Saints in 2008, for their sophomore season should be unbelievable. Members of the first ever Carroll College cross country team finish strong.
