The men’s swimming and diving team defeated Penn in its season opener for the third consecutive year at home in dominating fashion. Sophomores Dominik Koll, Kevin Quinn, and diver Micah Rembrandt each won individual events en route to a 182.5-115.5 win for the Lions. But Columbia could not build on its opening win and had to settle for an opening weekend split after a 170-130 loss to Yale on Sunday. Koll won two individual events once again, but the rest of the team could not overcome a strong Bulldog team that won 11 of 16 events.
This week in history in 1979, University cafeteria and clerical workers voted 183-100 to halt a 15-day walkout and return to work.
