A versatile player as a four-year starter, he saw action at right field, shortstop, first base, third base, and pitcher. Stoltz established 13 school records with the bat, and six of those marks still stand 30 years later. He belted 12 home runs as a senior and finished his career with 26 round-trippers. Both of those totals are still tops in recorded team history. His .494 batting average as a sophomore not only set the team single-season record but also ranked sixth in the nation that year. Stoltz still holds Carleton’s top mark for slugging percentage in a season (.861 in 1989) and a career (.741) as well as RBI in a season (48 in 1991). He hit over .400 twice and finished with a then school-record .394 career batting average. Upon graduation he also held the program standard for career hits (152), doubles (36), triples (10), RBI (137), and total bases (286). After batting .360 with 21 RBI and 16 stolen bases as a rookie, Stoltz earned his first all-conference award the following year by hitting .494 with 5 homers and 35 RBI. Those numbers helped Carleton post its first winning season since 1964. He paced the squad in home runs (7) and slugging (.688) as a junior in 1990 and concluded his career by helping Carleton capture the 1991 MIAC regular season title as the Knights went on the road to win the last two games at St. Thomas. He shared the 1991 MIAC MVP award with teammate John Nielson as Stoltz batted .402, ranked fifth in NCAA Division III with an .828 slugging percentage, and was among the top performers in the country for home runs and RBI per game. The 1991 squad won 24 games, the most victories in the baseball program’s nearly 140-year history. That year’s team advanced to the NCAA Division III Regionals for the first time. Stoltz was also was a three-time letter winner on the gridiron, where he saw time at punter, safety, linebacker, defensive end, running back, and tight end.

Schroeder was second on the team with 61 tackles that season and had three interceptions, including a pick-six in the season opener against Northwestern College. He totaled 55 tackles and four interceptions as a junior, then improved both of those figures the following fall with five interceptions and 61 tackles to earn the Lippert Award for Most Outstanding Senior. He was only the second baseball player in program history to be a three-time winner of the team’s Kelly Award as team MVP in 1999, 2000, and 2001. A center fielder, Schroeder established then-program records for games played (142), hits (154), walks (63), and stolen bases (65), a mark he still holds two decades later. He owned a career .342 batting average with 33 doubles, a .433 on-base percentage, and a .496 slugging percentage. Defensively, Schroeder had 346 career putouts, most by an outfielder and 7th all time.  His sophomore campaign, a season in which the team exclusively used wood bats, included a game winning home run in extra innings over Hamline. As a junior, he led the team in hitting (.381), runs (29), and slugging (.581). He was 18 for 19 in stolen base attempts that season and received Carleton’s Mel Taube Award in 2000, given to a Carleton male athlete that exemplifies the qualities of loyalty, dedication, and achievement.

The following fall, Carlton helped the Knights post a 0.31 goals-against average as they conceded the second-fewest goals among the more than 700 NCAA men’s soccer programs from all three divisions. It was more of the same during Carlton’s senior season, as he anchored the 2009 defense that allowed only 13 goals all season and ranked fifth in Division III with 13 shutouts in 20 games. All told, the Knights went 57-14-8 overall (.772 winning percentage) during his time at Carleton, including 29-6-2 (.810 winning percentage) in MIAC matches. He was equally successful in the classroom and earned several academic awards, including NSCAA Scholar-Athlete All-American and the prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. Carlton was the 2010 recipient of the College’s Warren Beson Award, which honors a senior for athletic and academic excellence.

Kelly Lovett ’11 • Track & Field, Volleyball

Kelly LovettKelly Lovett was an accomplished athlete in both track & field and volleyball. A three-time All-American in the javelin, she concluded her collegiate career as the 2011 NCAA Champion in the event and became only the fourth Carleton female track & field athlete to win a national outdoor title, and the first to do so since 1999. Lovett still holds the school record for the javelin at 47.36 meters, a mark she achieved on her final collegiate throw. She was the runner up in the javelin (38.95 meters) at the 2008 MIAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships, the first of her three All-MIAC performances in the event. The following spring she placed seventh at the NCAA Championships (41.96 meters) and captured her first All-American award. Lovett took second at the MIAC Championships again in 2010 and returned to Nationals, where she finished in fourth place (44.19 meters). The 2011 spring season saw her take second at the conference meet once again, but she made her third straight appearance at the NCAA Championships and controlled the event from the drop. She popped off a personal-best throw of 46.10 meters on her first attempt and followed with a 47.03-meter effort. Those two throws already ranked as the top two in the competition until she stepped to the line for her final attempt. Lovett unleashed a 47.36-meter toss, capping off the competition—and her career—with a flair. Her final distance (155 feet, 5.75 inches), won the event by more than four meters. She still ranks inside the track & field program’s top 10 in the discus (36.05 meters) and shot put (11.47 meters). On the volleyball court, Lovett earned All-MIAC First Team recognition in 2010 and totaled 760 kills, including team-bests of 309 in 2009 and 276 in 2010. She added 502 career digs and 71 aces, including a team-best 37 in 2009. She received the Pat Lamb Award in 2011, given to the top Carleton female athlete who exemplifies academic and athletic excellence. Lovett’s work in the classroom resulted in CoSIDA Academic All-District honors for volleyball in 2009 and track & field in 2011. She was the USTFCCCA Division III Field Scholar Athlete of the Year in 2011 and received an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.
