Women’s squash will start its third season as a varsity team at home this weekend. The Lions will face Georgetown (2-1) Friday at 8 p.m. and Cornell (3-0) on Sunday at 11 a.m. Though Columbia had a record of 7-11 and finished last in the Ancient Eight last season, the College Squash Association’s preseason poll ranked this year’s squad 13th nationally going into the season. The team has seven returning players, including Alisha Maity, Katie Quan, and Kate Calihan, and also features four freshmen. The action starts Friday at the SL Green StreetSquash Center at 40 West 116th Street.
