This weekend, the women’s swimming and diving team hopes to follow up its successful meet against Cornell by defeating another Ivy League foe, Brown. Seniors Katie Meili, Caroline Lukins, and Kristina Parsons have all been highlighting the run to Ivy League Championships next month, and should prove essential tools in the Lions’ offense. The Bears are coming off a resounding 219-80 victory against Penn. Though Columbia and Brown are currently tied in conference standings, it’s notable that the Lions’ win against Penn was much slimmer—a mere 19-point margin. The two teams clash Saturday in Uris pool at noon.
Four seniors reflect on their time at Columbia, and what it means to be leaving these years—and NYC—behind.
