Box Score

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Columbia volleyball team fell to Harvard in straight sets Saturday night by set scores of 16-25, 21-25, 21-25 in Malkin Athletic Center.

The Lions dropped to 4-10 on the season with a 2-3 Ivy League mark after rallying for a come-from-behind victory over Dartmouth on Friday night. Harvard moved into second place in the Ivy League, improving to 8-6 overall and 3-2 in conference action.

Sophomore Bailey Springer led the way for Columbia with nine kills, while senior Colleen Brennan posted a team-high 17 assists and first-year Cassie Wes contributed 10 digs.

The Crimson had a strong offensive night with three players registering double-digit kills, led by Caroline Walters who recorded a match-high 11 kills. Overall, Harvard hit .226 and outkilled Columbia by a 47 to 29 margin. However, the Lions were strong at the net, outblocking the Crimson 10 to 8.

Columbia continues its Ivy League slate with a pair of home matches next weekend in Levien Gymnasium. The Lions are set to host Brown on Friday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m., followed by a 5 p.m. match against Yale on Saturday.
