NEW YORK – No.5 Columbia men's squash upset No.3 Rochester on Thursday at SL Green Streetsquash in comeback fashion and improved to 3-1 on the season. 

It came down to the final match between first-year Rahul Sehrawat and Rochester's Lawrence Kuhn in the seventh position. With the match tied at two sets a piece, the two rallied back and forth in the fifth set but it was Sehrawat who was able to score the final two points and bring home the 12-10 match victory, and the 5-4 win for Columbia.

After trailing for much of the afternoon, Sehrawat and Osama Khalifa in the top spot (11-9, 4-11, 11-6, 11-9) won the final two matches to complete the upset. 

Adding victories for Columbia were also Seif Atta, playing at No. 3, Arhum Saleem at No. 7 and Joshua Sekhar at No. 9.

UP NEXT: The Lions will begin a Ivy League play this weekend hosting a pair of conference foes. On Saturday, Jan.14 at 12 p.m. Columbia will take on #16 Brown, followed by #2 Yale on Sunday Jan. 15 at 12 p.m..
