Lions get swooped by Mountain Hawks

COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, NEW YORK, NY- Columbia University Lions faced off the Lehigh University Mountain Hawks this past weekend. The students at Columbia sported light blue and white in support of their Lions, but not even the halftime show from the school marching band was enough to win the game. The Lions lost to the Mountain Hawks 10 to 24. It was a tough defeat for the team, but the amount of school spirit was still felt among the bleachers at Robert K. Kraft field in Lawrence A. Wein Stadium. Roars and cheers made the players stand strong with the hope of another win soon
