Knickerbocker Recap: It’s Putting Szn Edition

Groundhog Day is typically a holiday overlooked by us lowly NARP Columbians, but we know one group of people who must have been ecstatic about Punxsutawney Phil’s heedless prediction of an early Spring just a few weeks ago- Columbia’s golf teams! The men and women kicked off their Spring seasons on the greens of Georgia and Florida this weekend, and Bwog’s Sports Editor Jana Jaran has the details (and more CU sports news). 

Golf: Both the men’s and women’s golf teams kicked off their seasons this weekend, with the men competing at the Invitational at Savannah Harbor in Savannah, Georgia and the women at the Florida Atlantic Winter Warmup Event in Boca Raton. The team of five men placed 18th for Columbia with John Robertson leading the way (placing 26th individually). 

Squash: In the first round of the College Squash Association Team Nationals on Friday afternoon, Columbia lost to No. 5 Trinity College with wins in positions 1,2, 6 and 8.

Tennis: This weekend, the men’s tennis team competed in the ITA National Indoor Team Championship in downtown Chicago. They had two hard-fought wins over Notre Dame and Baylor, but lost to No. 1 seed Wake Forest.

Basketball: Two major Ls were taken for Columbia Men’s Basketball this weekend, losing to both Yale (70-64) and Brown (65-63) in close games. On the other hand, the women’s team came back from their loss to Yale on Friday (69-61) by defeating Brown on Saturday night (83-81) with a game-winning three pointer from first-year Madison Hardy. 

Wrestling: Columbia wrestlers had a long day on Saturday with a morning match against Brown followed by an evening match against Harvard. They lost to Brown in the morning in a close match (19-18) that came down to the final bout, but they came back in the evening against Harvard beating them 32-3.
