Knickerbocker Roundup: Breaking Fall Edition

Is that water dyed Pantone 292?

Before you jet off to some exotic location for fall break, consider catching up with Columbia Athletics. Sports Editor Abby Rubel brings you the latest and a reminder to vote if you haven’t already!

Men’s Soccer: The Lions (9-4-1, 4-1 Ivy) will travel to Cambridge Saturday to take on Harvard (3-11, 1-4 Ivy) at 7:00 pm. The Lions sit at second place in the Ivy League, just behind Princeton (9-4-2, 4-0-1 Ivy). The Ivy title is hotly contested. Princeton could clinch it this weekend if they beat Penn and if Columbia ties or loses to Harvard, but such a loss is unlikely—the Bulldogs have been shut out in four of their last five games. Senior goalie Dylan Castanheira will look to add another shutout. If he does, he’ll tie the Ivy League record of 26 career shutouts. Cornell and Dartmouth are also still in the running for the Ivy title and will duke it out this weekend. Princeton, however, remains the favorite.

Women’s Soccer: Columbia (8-6-1, 4-2 Ivy) will also head up to Cambridge for a road match against Harvard (6-7-1, 3-2-1 Ivy) on Saturday at 1:00 pm for their last game of the season. Currently in third place, the Light Blue could move up to second with a win or tie this weekend. They haven’t beaten Harvard since 2007, but the offense is strong—10 players have scored goals this season, including team leader Maddie Temares with four goals so far. Senior Emma Anderson and sophomore Jordyn Geller each have three goals. Harvard’s offense is headed by Leah Mohammadi, who is fourth in the Ivies with seven goals this season.

Men’s/Women’s Swimming and Diving: Both teams will open their season this weekend. The women’s team will start by traveling to Penn for a meet starting at 5:00 pm Friday, and come home on Saturday for a meet against Northeastern at 1:00 pm. Admission is free! Last year, the Lions finished fifth at the Ivy Championships and went 3-5 on the season. Ten of their 13 championship top-16 finishers return for this season. This season will be Mary Ashby’s last—she earned two top-six finishes last year in both the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events. The men’s team also has two meets this weekend, first at Army on Friday at 5:00 pm and then at Penn on Saturday at 1:00 pm. The Light Blue finished fourth place at the Ivy Championships off an 8-2 record. Sophomore Jonathan Suckow returns to the team after finishing 25th at the NCAA Championships in the 3-meter dive, Columbia’s highest finish in nearly 20 years.
