Sports Roundup: Can’t We Play All Our Games in Nice Weather?

Written by

As reported, Columbia football had a rough outing in the rain at Dartmouth, falling 28-6. Columbia’s teams struggled through Saturday, but the crew and men’s soccer teams took advantage of Sunday’s summer-redux weather to uphold our sporting name.


The volleyball team dropped matches on Friday and Saturday to Princeton and Penn, respectively, leaving the team at 11-10, and 2-6 in the Ivy League. They’ll look to turn things around next week on a road trip that takes them to Harvard and Dartmouth.

Also at Dartmouth, the women’s field hockey team nearly held on for the tie, but fell in the final minutes to a tough 2-1 loss. In other Astroturf news, the men’s and women’s soccer teams saw their matches against Dartmouth postponed until Sunday on account of rain. While the women’s team dropped their match, 2-0, the extra rest seemed to help the men, who fought to a strong 2-0 victory. Both teams will host Yale at Baker field next weekend.

Along with men’s soccer, the myriad crew teams did their part to redeem the big blue C. At their end-of-season Princeton Three-Mile Chase, the women’s eight finished an improved 22nd of 55 teams, the lightweight men took fifth, and the heavyweights finished a strong third in their race.

  1. dropped?

    Means lost or forfeit?

  2. context!  

    The heavyweight men finished 3rd of 40 entries and the lightweight men were 5th of 31. Their accomplishments sound a lot better when you say "they beat 37 and 26 other teams" tho
