Sports Sunday: They’ve Begun!

lady lions doin' their thang

Slam dunk the funk okay wait wrong sport.

Another school year, another season of Columbia Athletics.  Max Rettig brings you the week’s highlight:

The Lady Lions beat Fordham yesterday in the Columbia Invitational’s second day by a score of 3-1. Moye-McLaren put up a double-double (kills and digs, not points and rebounds). Three frosh-girls also pitched in for the Lion victory, with Jennifer Petrovich padding her stats with 23 digs and 39 assists (that’s a lot, right?), Cassie Wes adding 13 digs and Zoe Jacobs adding 13 kills. Columbia lost the first set but took the next (and last) three rather easily, winning by at least 9 points each time, while their only loss was by a 7-point margin. Bon travail, les femmes!

It should be noted that the Lady Lions lost in 5 well-contested sets to the Binghamton Bearcats in the nightcap.

FYI, bearcats are real Southeast Asian mammals. They are also the inspiration for many school mascots, including, obviously, Binghamton, as well as Cincinnati, and the BearCat is the model name of a .22 revolver. Fun shit. Thanks Wikipedia.

The Lion girls are back on the court next weekend at the University of Virginia Tournament, where they take on Virginia, William & Mary, and Seton Hall.
