Today in Columbia Sports Victories: Water Polo
Written by Bwog Staff
Bwog pauses to congratulate the men’s water polo team, who came in 13th at the national championships in Athens, Ohio. In their final game, the Lions defeated Georgia Tech 7-5 in two overtimes, senior Sam Scioscia’s goal with 46 seconds left in the second overtime period providing the difference. Freshman Daniel Kirel scored three goals for Columbia, as the team finished as high as it ever has at the national championships.
In other sports news, the men’s and women’s cross country teams finished 3rd and 5th at NCAA regionals respectively, and women’s swimming added to their Friday night opening victory with a win over Yale. Men’s swimming lost to Yale to fall to 1-1, while the men’s and women’s basketball teams lost to Seton Hall and Delaware respectively.
