Knickerbocker Roundup: Venus Is In Retrograde Edition

EVERY SINGLE MINUTE

Sports Editor Abby Rubel has been informed that Venus is in retrograde, which means we should spend time reflecting on relationships, including with Columbia Athletics! To help, here’s what’s going on this weekend.

Women’s Soccer: Columbia (5-4-1, 2-0 Ivy) will look to stay on top of the Ivy League on Friday at 4:00 pm at Penn (7-1-1, 1-0-1 Ivy). The Light Blue’s past few games have been close: a double-overtime victory over Cornell and a last-minute one over Brown. Penn has only one Ivy victory, a 2-0 win over Cornell last weekend. The Lions have won their last two matches against Penn 1-0 in extra minutes and will have to shut down Emily Sands if they hope to win this one. Sands has the most game-winning goals in the league, with four on the season.

Men’s Tennis: Three Lions will play at the International Tennis Association Championships this weekend. Sophomore Rian Pandole advanced from the pre-qualifying round with four wins and will take on South Carolina’s Yancy Dennis in his first match. Senior William Matheson will take on Idaho State’s Peter Trhac. Austen Huang, a fellow senior, will take on Scott Jones from Tennessee.

Men’s Soccer: The Blue and White (4-3-1, 1-0 Ivy) will take on Penn (2-2-3, 0-1 Ivy) on Saturday at 7:00 pm in an away game. Columbia lost to Pittsburgh last weekend 1-0, and Penn dropped its last game against Cornell in double overtime. Senior Knyan Rocks has three goals on the season, leading the team and the Ivy League. Senior Dylan Castanheira has played every minute in the net for Columbia, with a .68 goals against average. He’s also two shutouts away from holding the Columbia career record.
