Knickerbocker Roundup: Winding Down Edition

Dylan Castanheira can save anything, probably.

Like your hopes and dreams of doing all your reading after midterms, fall sports are coming to an end. Sports Editor Abby Rubel is here, as always, to give you the 411. (Do people still say that or have I been rewatching Clueless too much?)

Men’s Tennis: Sophomore Jack Lin and senior William Matheson lost their first doubles round in the ITA Fall Championships on Wednesday. The pair was seeded at number one, a program first for Columbia men’s tennis. After losing to two players from Drake 6-3, 7-6(7), Lin and Matheson dropped to the consolation bracket, where they defeated a team from South Carolina. They will play their next match at 6:00 pm today. Junior Jackie Tang also lost to his first opponent in the singles bracket, Paul Jubb of South Carolina. (Incidentally, Jubb was half of the doubles duo that lost to Lin and Matheson.) Tang also lost his consolation bracket match to Majed Kilani of Tulsa.

Men’s Soccer: The Lions (10-4-1, 5-1 Ivy) will take on Cornell (10-6, 3-3 Ivy) at home on Saturday at 1:00 pm in their final game of the season. Princeton (10-4-1, 5-0-1 Ivy) leads the Ivy League and will claim the championship if they win against Yale this weekend, but a loss or draw gives Columbia a shot at the title. If Princeton loses or draws and Columbia wins, the Lions will take the title. If Columbia draws, the two teams will share the title but Princeton will advance to the NCAA post-season because they beat Columbia earlier in the season. Yale is fighting to finish with a winning record and Princeton has won their last eight games. Regardless of how things go down in New Haven, senior goalie Dylan Castanheira will look to get one last shutout and tie the Ivy record of 26 career blank sheets. (He currently has 25, including two of his last three games.) Additionally, he will likely break the conference record of goals against average. The record is .75 and he is at .47 for his career.

Cross Country: Both the men’s and women’s cross country teams will head to the NCAA Regionals today. The women will race first in a 6,000 meter jaunt at 11:00 am. The men will follow in a 10,000 meter race at noon. The women’s team is ranked 20th nationally heading into the meet, and have been ranked 1st regionally over the past three weeks. They finished first at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships a few weeks ago. The men finished fifth at the Heps.
