Women’s squash was swept by Cornell in its first match of the season on Sunday, losing all nine matches in four games or fewer. Junior Katie Quan (a sports columnist for Spectator) and freshman Catherine Jenkins were the only Columbia players able to force a fourth game in their matches. Although Quan won her first game, she lost to Cornell’s Rachel Au (9-11, 11-8, 11-5, 11-5). Jenkins played in the No. 1 spot and won her second game, but fell to Cornell’s Danielle Letourneau (11-9, 10-12, 11-2, 11-6). The Lions will look for their first win of the season after the break on Jan. 12, when they host Brown.
Four seniors reflect on their time at Columbia, and what it means to be leaving these years—and NYC—behind.
