Gold Dinner was hosted at Carmine's on West 44th Street this past Thursday, and
the family style Italian restaurant never seems to disappoint. We decided to go
back to the format used by the Lions in the 1970s, when the first Gold Dinner
was held at Mamma Leone's. We had great representation from Lions graduating in
the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Our honored speaker was Chandler Bocklage
CC'00. Chandler is from an era of
alums we value getting back into the fold. This program is about the people in
it - the players that are here, the players we have recruited and the players
that came before. Each generation learns from the last.
that we are getting settled into The
Campbell Sports Center, we are in the process of laying out a community
outreach plan that will engage not only the Columbia community, but create a
relationship with our neighborhood. We are excited to be in Inwood and Coach Mangurian has been
busy meeting regarding our involvement efforts. We welcome your advice and if
you have any community service suggestions please tweet @gocolumbialionsfb and
use the hashtag #LionsInInwood. You can also email your suggestions directly
Break before Spring Ball
the week before spring break and the team is looking forward to getting some
R&R after eight weeks of strength and conditioning. The hard work is
undoubtedly paying off, making the 6 a.m. wake up calls four times a week worthwhile. The players will get a week of rest,
and when they return we'll let you know their testing results and changes in
body composition. Coach Cidzik's program in the weight room has had a huge
impact on our team and we are excited to share the results.

are meeting continuously to review film, evaluate and implement in preparation

the morning three days a week. Our main focus and goals are to improve our
