The Lions are back in town

It was a busy break for the Lions with a number of successes to report. Men’s Basketball opened the Ivy League season with a big win over Cornell, and Men’s and Women’s Swimming & Diving added Ivy League wins against Brown and Cornell. Fencing cleaned up at the Penn State Invitational on January 12th, winning nine of ten matches between the Men’s and Women’s teams. Men’s Squash picked up five wins over the break and Wrestling won two of three matches at the Cal Poly Mustang Duals. More recently, Women’s Track & Field took home the Metropolitan Indoor Track & Field Championship title for the second consecutive year, besting the other 14 teams in the field, including Fordham and Rutgers.
