What’s Happening In Columbia Sports
Written by Abby Rubel
Sports Editor Abby Rubel brings you the athletics events to keep your eye on this weekend.
Track and Field: Both the men’s and women’s track and field teams will compete at the NYC Armory this weekend–the only meet all season on the island of Manhattan. Student tickets are $10, but this might be your only chance to cheer on these teams this year. (Unless you want to schlep out to Staten Island.) More information here.
Men’s Swimming and Diving: The Lions will take on Navy in an away meet today at 2:00 in their last non-conference meet of the season. Currently ranked at number four thanks to a 3-2 Ivy record and a 6-2 record overall, Columbia is coming off a three win streak and beat Navy by 36 points last year, so the Lions’ prospects are good.
Men’s Squash: Currently ranked nationally at number two, men’s squash will take on number 10 George Washington Sunday at 11:00 am in New Haven. The Lions are 9-1 overall and 3-0 in conference play, with their only loss coming against 9-0 Trinity. While this match-up isn’t a conference game, a win here could cement their national ranking and prevent 8-2 Penn from stealing their spot at the top.
