Welcome back! We’re proud to present the 12th episode of the Spectator Sportscast, a weekly offering about Columbia varsity sports. Hosted by Spectator columnists and varsity soccer players Ronnie Shaban and Zach Glubiak, with fellow columnist and Spectrum daily editor Mrinal Mohanka, the SportsCast provides a succinct round-up of what happened last weekend, and what lies ahead for the Lions.

This edition includes the weekend’s basketball, wrestling, tennis, swimming and diving, and track and field events, and looks ahead to all the action coming up, featuring a special guest in senior fencer Sean Leahy.

Can people die while fencing? What has Greek life taught a student-athlete? Want to know Sean’s favorite thing about America? All that and more, including Sean being quizzed on interesting fencing terminology. Take a listen.
