Harvieux was a “Renaissance kid” from a loving family who played basketball for Carleton and had a warm and affable personality, said Guy Kalland, Carleton’s basketball coach. “He was so fired up about his classes,” Kalland said. “He was curious, he was engaging, he was respectful. I think he epitomized all the values that Carleton holds dear.”
Andy Clark coached Sparks and Goodgame on Carleton’s swimming team but knew all five of them.
“They were all very good friends. I can’t imagine what their families are going through,” he said. “You just don’t expect to lose people at this age. It’s the worst kind of tragedy. It’s hard to comprehend.”
Goodgame spent two years on the swim team, and Sparks was a mainstay for the Knights this season. Clark was at the hospital with Sparks’ family Friday night. “Will [Sparks] is someone you can always count on,” Clark said. “In or out of the pool, he’s someone who gives 100 percent all the time. He has a sense of integrity that’s one of the best I’ve ever seen.”
On the stretch of Hwy. 3 not far from the Dairy Queen on the edge of Northfield, there was no sign of Friday’s tragedy.
“Last night and this morning, our immediate focus has been on just getting through today,” campus spokesman Eric Sieger said Saturday. The campus will have counseling and chaplaincy services available for students.
“Anyone who’s gone through the experience of losing a young person knows how difficult it is. We’ve lost three. The most important thing for us as a campus is that we come together and support one another.”
