Despite a loss by a significant margin on Wednesday night, the field hockey team was been quite satisfied with their performance against Princeton. They did, after all, succeed in keeping the national powerhouse in check for the entire second half of the game.
To say that Princeton field hockey, a team that has won the Ivy League title eight years running, is a strong team would be an understatement. Their program is ranked 13th in the nation, and eight of their players received All-Ivy honors last season, when they made the national semifinals.
Columbia Athletics, which has seen changes to its Sports Information Department and Dodge Fitness Center supervisors over the summer, has also experienced a significant turnover in coaching recently.

The Columbia field hockey team of 2001 experienced a season of frustration. Despite retaining the core from its 2000 ECAC championship team, the Lions went 5-11 and tied for a league-worst 1-6 in Ivy competition. In one two-week stretch, Columbia dropped six straight decisions.
The Columbia Athletics Communications Department is undergoing a makeover this fall: following Senior Associate Director Bill Steinman's retirement and the transfer in leadership from Al Langer to Thad Dohrn, the department has reorganized and reassigned roles in order to keep its operations runn
Sometimes for Columbia, everything goes right. The 2001-2002 men's swimming and diving team set an example for Columbia that realistic goals can be accomplished.

In perhaps their best season in fifteen years, Columbia baseball made a respectable run at the Gehrig Division title, keeping themselves within reach of dethroning Princeton, the reigning six-time champions, up until the last weekend of the Ivy season.
