NEW YORK - The Columbia men's squash team will head to Princeton, N.J. this weekend to play in the 2012 CSA National Championships on Friday, Feb. 17 - Sunday, Feb. 19. The 14th ranked Lions will be in the Hoehn Cup (B Division), facing 11th ranked Navy in their first match of the tournament on Friday, Feb. 17 at 1:30 p.m. Columbia will look to avenge a 2-7 loss to the Midshipmen earlier this season in Annapolis, Md. on Tuesday, Jan. 10.
The Lions will enter the tournament at 5-10 after losing a competitive match to Ivy League Champion Princeton. Columbia was handed an 1-8 home loss to end the regular season, however the sole win of the match for the Lions seemed to be the highlight of the night. The battle of Princeton's Todd Harrity and Columbia's Ramit Tandon marked a national match-up of the No. 2 and No. 4 players. Tandon pulled the upset to win in four with a score of 11-6, 11-5, 7-11, 11-5.
