NEW YORK – Columbia announced that women’s track and field’s Sarah Hardie and men’s swimming and diving’s Jonathan Suckow were named Student-Athletes of the Month for February.

Hardie successfully defended her indoor 1K title and won the event for the fourth time in her career at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships on February 25. Her time of 2:44.85 broke the school, which she previously held, and the meet record. Hardie, who hails from Eastport, New York, also anchored the DMR to the Ivy Heps title and overcame a 25-meter deficit to help the Lions take the top spot on the podium.

Earlier in the month, Hardie established a new school record in the one-mile run, clocking a 4:39.11 to win her heat at the Valentine Invitational (Feb. 9) and is qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships with the 14th best time in the field.

Suckow continued his dominant rookie campaign, sweeping the 1 and 3-meter diving events at the Ivy League Championships. For his efforts, he was named 2018 Ivy League Diver of the Year. Suckow, who finished the Ancient Eight dual-meet season unbeaten in both the 1M and 3M, broke the 3-meter diving record twice and established a Uris Pool record.
