“Oh, my God, that’s a Rembrandt!” my mom half-shouted, waving her hand close enough to the portrait of Nicolaes Ruts to get a stern look from museum security. “I love Rembrandt.”...

Good morning Columbia Lions! Brace yourselves, for it is almost summer time.
Columbia wrestling had a rough weekend at the Northeast Duals on Nov. 24. The Lions suffered defeats at the hands of No. 16 Maryland and Rutgers, but managed to end the week on a positive note, beating Drexel in their third and final dual. At the onset of Columbia's first dual in the event, against Maryland, the Lions appeared to be far out of their league. The Terrapins took two decisions and a major decision in the first three matches to jump out to a 10-0 lead. The Lions managed to right the ship by winning the next three straight. But Maryland proved to be too strong, going undefeated in the remaining matches for a final score of 27-10. The Lions' second dual went worse than the first. Rutgers had a slight advantage in that it was fresh, not having wrestled in an early-morning bout. The Scarlet Knights took off to a flying start with a 13-0 advantage and ran away with the dual for a 30-6 victory. Light Blue senior No. 13 Stephen West suffered a bitter 1-0 defeat at the hands of No. 10 Greg Zanetti. Scott Winston upset senior Jake O'Hara in the 157-pound weight class. The only Columbians to emerge victorious were seniors Steve Santos and Nick Mills. Columbia finished the event against Drexel. The Lions fared much better, taking seven of 10 decisions, resulting in a 26-9 victory. Columbia freshman Joe Moita won a major decision in the 133-pound weight class to bring the Lions to an early 7-0 lead. The Dragons responded with a victory at the 141-pound weight class. But a trio of Columbia seniors led a run that all but secured victory for the Lions during the next few matches. Santos got the Lions started with a pin at the 2:05 mark during his match; O'Hara followed his lead, winning 10-6 in the following 157-pound match; and senior Stephen West finished the run with a close 6-4 victory. email@example.com...
