What Happened In Columbia Sports

Run, Sarah, run!

While you were partying hard, catching up on sleep, or jetting off to exotic locales, Columbia’s athletes were hard at work racking up wins (and losses). 

Wrestling: Seniors Markus Scheidel, Garrett Ryan, and Tyrel White all won at least one match at the NCAA Championships last week, with Scheidel winning two. After an 8-1 triumph over his first opponent, White fell to the number six seed 6-0, then lost his match in the consolation bracket. Ryan lost his first match of the tournament 4-0, but won his first match of the consolation bracket 9-3 before losing the next match 3-2. Scheidel defeated his first opponent 6-3. The senior couldn’t overcome Big Ten Champion Micah Jordan and was sent to the consolation bracket, where he won his first match 8-0 but lost the second.

Track and Field: Senior Sarah Hardie finished 10th in the one mile race with a time of 4:51.07 at the Track and Field NCAA Championships. Although she came in sixth in her heat, she had one of the fastest two remaining times (4:40.24) to qualify for the finals. The finish gave her All-American status for the first time in her career.

Baseball: The Lions won two more games over spring break, giving them a non-conference record of 3-15 before starting their conference play against Yale this Saturday. The Lions started off strong, winning their first two games against University of Texas, San Antonio 9-3 and 11-7. They then went 0-10, including two overtime losses against University of Mexico and University of Houston.

Lacrosse: lost 17-5 at Cornell, won 18-6 at East Carolina

Softball: lost 6-1 against Boise State, lost 9-5 against UC Riverside, lost 7-1 against North Dakota State, won 7-1 against Colgate (at UC Riverside Classic), won 5-0 at Cal State Fullerton, lost 5-0 at Loyola Marymount, won 4-3 at Florida Atlantic, won 8-6, 9-7, and lost 8-5 at Penn
