What’s Happening In Columbia Sports

She’s beauty, she’s grace, she’ll kick you in the face.

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.
