Accomplishments & Accolades
The Talking Saints won 39 awards on the way to finishing third at the Mahaffey Tournament at Linfield College, November 18-20. Carroll finished behind Boise State University and Lewis & Clark College, among the 30 universities from seven states who competed.
“It was really nice to see success at all levels,” said coach Brent Northup. “We miss not having seniors this year, but the sophomores and juniors had a solid tournament, and the newcomers continue to shine. This year’s team is working very hard and we coaches have to dig deep to keep up with them.” Read more.

On the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving, the Carroll women’s softball team came together for a day of service to the Helena community. The team split forces with half of the team helping with interior work on a Habitat for Humanity house while the other half assisted with donations at the Restore Store. The experience provided an opportunity for team bonding while also providing the student-athletes and coaches an opportunity to give back to the Helena community that supports them in such generous ways during the season.
