Jackie Dubrovich, center, is National Rookie of the Week and kind of a badass

Someone from Columbia is participating in Super Bowl XLVII tonight! Well, he’s not playing or anything, but Associate Athletic Director of Sports Medicine Jim Gossett with be on the sidelines serving as one of two “spotters,” whose job is to look for head and neck injuries during the game. Pretty big gig for an Ivy League AD. Now while the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers open for Beyonce tonight, let’s look back at this week’s results for the Columbia Lions. At The Amory this weekend, four Men’s Track & Field runners made history, breaking the Columbia University record in the Distance Medley relay, which consists of a 1200m leg, followed by 400m leg, then a 800m leg, and finally a 1600m leg. The quartet of John Gregorek, Harrison McFann, Connor Claflin, Mark Feigen clocked in at the record-breaking time of 9:40.67, the fifth-fastest NCAA time of the season. The Lions saw even more success in the second day of competition at The Amory Collegiate Invitational, including two first place finishes in both the Men’s and Women’s 4 x 800m relays. Over 100 teams were represented at the Invitational. Men’s Tennis also had an impressive weekend, beating Fordham 6-1 in their second win of the season and Men’s Swimming & Diving captured their fifth straight win against Navy. Though they didn’t compete this weekend, the Women’s Swimming & Diving team moved to No. 23 in national rankings following four consecutive wins. Men’s Basketball has been on a streak as well, but not the good kind, as they dropped their third straight game against Princeton yesterday. In fencing, both the Men’s and Women’s teams cleaned up at the NYU Invitational last Sunday, winning all ten of their combined matched. Freshman foilist Jackie Dubrovich was named National Rookie of the Week by CollegeFencing360.com after winning a combined 21 of 23 bouts in the St. John’s and NYU Invitationals.Touché.
