On a cold and rainy October day at Princeton’s West Windsor Fields, the Columbia women’s cross-country team won its second straight Ivy League Heptagonal Championship title. Seniors Erin Gregoire and Libby Kokes, junior Katie Wasserman, and sophomore Allie Hays earned All-Ivy team honors. “It was a great run for us,” says head coach Dan Ireland. “We have an entirely new team this year, so we weren’t sure what to expect. We thought if we worked hard, we could defend our title. I’m really proud of them.” 

In the men’s race, junior Kenny Vasbinder was the first to cross the line for Columbia, claiming ninth in the field overall and earning a spot on the All-Ivy team.
