While you’re enjoying Bacchanal (or shivering your butt off), Columbia’s teams are busy taking on Ivy opponents.
Baseball: The Lions (8-18, 4-2 Ivy) head up to Hanover this weekend to take on Dartmouth (5-13, 1-1-1 Ivy) in their first conference roadtrip of the season. Columbia is currently tied with Yale for first place; the Bulldogs will take on last-place Cornell this weekend. The Lions are coming off a midweek 7-6 win against St. Johns, while the Big Green haven’t played since going 1-1-1 against Penn last weekend. Although Dartmouth swept Columbia last year, the Light Blue are in a much better position to take the series this weekend.
Men’s Tennis: Columbia travels to Penn (12-9, 1-0 Ivy) today for its first Ivy game of the season at 2 pm, then plays a home match against Princeton (15-8, 0-1 Ivy) on Sunday at 1 pm. The 11-3 Lions are ranked 15th going into the weekend and have dominated both teams in previous seasons. Penn and Princeton both opened conference play last weekend, when Penn beat Princeton 6-1.
Women’s Tennis: After a resounding victory over defending Ivy League Champion Cornell last weekend, women’s tennis (9-5, 1-0 Ivy) takes on Penn (7-9, 0-1 Ivy) today at 1 pm and travels to Princeton (13-3, 1-0 Ivy) on Sunday for another 1 pm game. Last weekend, Princeton took down Penn 5-2 in their conference openers.
