Knickerbocker Recap: Winding Down Edition

Sports seasons are almost over! We are almost done! Read about it. 

Heavyweight Rowing: Columbia’s heavyweight rowers came in third place at the Doc Lusins Trophy regatta this weekend against two tough opponents- Boston University and Syracuse. Columbia also placed third in both the second and third varsity eight races.

Men’s Tennis: Columbia’s men’s tennis team claimed its sixth straight Ivy League title this Saturday after beating Cornell in a tight 4-2 match. A well deserved title after a great season.

Baseball: Columbia played a set of three games against Harvard this weekend in Cambridge. On Saturday, Columbia beat Harvard in the morning 11-9, but Harvard came back to take the second game 6-4. Harvard took the final match on Sunday in a tight game with a score of 10-9. The weekend’s results place Harvard and Columbia in a tie for first place in the race for the Ivy League title.

Softball: Columbia’s softball players won 2 out of 3 matches against Penn in a set of three home games this weekend. The first and last games were won by Columbia with scores of 6-5 and 5-4 while Penn managed to take the middle game with a score of 4-3. The results of the weekend also placed the team in a tie with Harvard for first place in Ivy League standings.

Lacrosse: In their last game of the season, Columbia’s lacrosse team lost to Brown with a score of 13-8 in Providence, Rhode Island.

Track and Field: 32 track and field athletes competed in the Penn Relays in Philadelphia from Thursday to Saturday. Some high-performing Columbia athletes included runners Allie Hays and Erin Gregoire in the 3000 meter run, hammer thrower Jack Pihlkar, triple jumper Maryam Hassan, as well as the 4×800 relay team and men’s and women’s DMR teams.

    @TOD HOWARD HAWKS CC 66 Columbia Tennis vs. Columbia Baseball:

    Columbia Tennis is the 2019 Ivy League Champion! Congratulations to Coach Goswami and all the players on the squad! Though I didn’t watch the contest, it is my understanding that the match against Cornell, and the Ivy Championship, came down to a tiebreaker, which Ambrosy heroically won. Unbelievable guts!

    Meanwhile, Columbia played Harvard in baseball yesterday afternoon (Sunday, 28 April). My understanding is that if Columbia had beaten Harvard in that game, Columbia would have become the Ivy Champs in baseball. While I again didn’t watch the game, I did check the score from time to time. The first time I checked, Columbia was leading 6-0 in the fourth or fifth inning (I forget which it was); nonetheless, I thought Columbia had the game, and concomitantly, the Ivy Championship won. Columbia had a six-run lead with the game almost half over.

    I am not a baseball coach, but I thought all Columbia had to do to win the whole enchilada was to keep Harvard from scoring seven runs, and to do that, I thought, all Columbia would have to do is use its very best pitchers to keep Harvard at bay.

    Well, when I checked back later, I was, of course, shocked to see the score was tied 9 to 9 in the eleventh inning. How had this happen, I thought? Later, when I saw that Harvard had won the game in the 14th inning by a score of 10 to 9, I was so upset I couldn’t bring myself to read the recap to learn how Columbia had managed to lose the game, and the Ivy Championship, when seemingly, at least to me, they had had both in the bag.

    Now, if Columbia Baseball wishes to emulate Columbia Tennis, they will have a much more difficult row to hoe.
