Home Court Advantage has become an ever more contentious topic for the Ivy League since 2016’s announcement of an Ivy League Basketball Tournament.

We are now a few weeks into the fall sports season, but how just how deep varies by team. Some, such as volleyball and soccer, began their seasons before even school had begun. Others, are only now kicking off. We bring you what you should pay attention to this week in Columbia athletics, with senior staff […]
Champion of the sporting life Ross Chapman went to a softball game and lived to tell the tale, sustained only by fevered visions of you, dear reader.

Two separate teams for Columbia hit their highest national rankings in program history in the final days of January.

The women (6-9, 0-1 Ivy) will tip off at 4:30 pm against Cornell (10-5, 1-0 […]
The men’s basketball team in light blue that showed up in Ithaca today was not the same team that went blow-for-blow with #1 Kentucky. Thankfully, they didn’t have to be against a Cornell squad that showed shades of its abysmal performances last year. Led by first-year Kyle Castlin’s 12 points, the Lions defeated the Big […]
What did we miss while we were doing anything except watching basketball getting ahead on our final term papers, awaiting the first snow, or dreaming of Thanksgiving break? The basketball teams here at Columbia are clearly more deserving of our attention, as sports fanatic Ross Chapman will tell you. The men’s and women’s basketball teams […]

Ever heard of a sport called softball? Apparently it’s a lot of fun and Columbia has a team. Softball enthusiast Max Rettig talked to softballer Alyssa Rodia about it. Bwog: Explain softball briefly. Alyssa: Softball is basically baseball, but with a bigger ball and smaller field B: Tell me about the innings rules-baseball always seems to […]
Less than a week after the Lions repeated as Gehrig Division champions, they reaffirmed their place atop the Ivy League.
