A good day for Columbia. The Ivies hand out titles in 33 varsity sports, a credit to the League and the athletes that participate. Some sports draw a lot more interest than others, but it doesn't take away from the achievement of being the best team in the League. Incidentally, in these three sports, the Ivy level of competition is extremely high.

Thank you. And you're right about the level of competition. Went to the Columbia and Harvard squash matches at Yale over the past two weekends. Terrific matches--best college squash in the nation. These players makes gets and shots that are unbelievable.

Random trivia question that I just looked up: How many outright Ivy titles have been won by the five non-HYP programs? Answer below.

From top to bottom, the sport that Ivy schools most dominate on a national level is not squash -- surprisingly -- but fencing.

Full disclosure: Columbia men's fencing was one of three tri-champions this year. Still champion of course, but not the same thing when 3/8 of the conference achieves it.

Answer to trivia question above: One. Only once in Ivy history has a non-HYP squash team won an outright conference title, Penn in 1969.

Actually 3/6, as Cornell and Dartmouth do not have men's teams. Dartmouth has no women's team.

Now . . . it's twice.

Yeah, I remember many days walking by that list of Ivy men's squash champions on a wooden board that was mounted in Harvard's atmospheric former varsity squash facility, Hemenway Gym, in the North Yard.
