While baseball and softball both had their doubleheaders postponed, it was otherwise a successful Saturday for Columbia athletics. Most notably, the #10 ranked men’s heavyweight rowing team defeated #8 Princeton and Penn to win its first Childs Cup since 1963. A year after losing by just over a second to Princeton, the boat put it all together to win by nine seconds (or approximately two boatlengths).

Elsewhere, the women’s rowing team took home the Howard Willkins Bowl, winning the most points of all five teams (including Georgetown, George Washington, Navy, and St. Joseph’s), and the women’s lacrosse team got back to .500, defeating Bryant 19-11. Holly Glynn had 5 goals, while Gabrielle Geronimos added 4 goals and 3 assists (photo by Columbia University Athletics).
