In the second round on Saturday, they won their 10th consecutive match, beating Penn State in a 4-0 shutout, causing them to advance to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen for the second year in a row. They’ll travel to Ohio next weekend to continue with the tournament.

Lightweight Rowing: Columbia’s lightweight varsity eight won its last regatta of the regular season against Delaware and Drexel’s heavyweights.
