The Lions posted arguably the best season in program history last year, taking home the Ivy League championship and posting their first-ever NCAA tournament win in a 6-5 thriller over New Mexico. While a couple of key players have moved on, the Lions return a talented roster headlined by senior pitchers Joey Donino and David Speer, senior catcher Mike Fischer, and power-hitting junior outfielder/designated hitter Joey Falcone. Head coach Brett Boretti and his coaching staff have led the Light Blue to two Ivy titles and three Ivy League Championship Series apperances in eight years at Columbia, and have the Lions posed for another strong campaign in 2014.
