The softball team is hoping to continue their winning streak as they travel to New York City to play against Columbia University at 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. The softball team hosted the University of Pennsylvania this past weekend in their first Ivy League conference series and swept, starting their conference season 3-0. These big wins came from a huge performance at the plate by Alaana Panu ’25, who hit two walk-offs during the weekend, building upon the team’s momentum.
