Match notes: Columbia was the 13th ITA-ranked opponent Princeton has faced this season and the fourth straight ranked opponent Princeton has faced ... the Lions have won the last five meetings with Princeton, with the Tigers' last win coming in 2011.
Order of finish: Doubles: 3,1; Singles: 4,5,2

Coach Billy Pate on the match:
"It was a tough day for us, but Columbia played a great match start to finish. They have a great team and will represent the Ivy League well in the NCAA tournament. The doubles point was played at a high level from both sides, but we needed to get that point today. Unfortunately, we weren't 100 percent in a couple spots but it was going to be a challenge regardless. We likely needed this match to have a chance for the NCAA tournament. Nonetheless, I'm very proud of this team and the progress we have made while setting a particular standard for this program. We faced a few unforeseen hurdles early in the year and did a great job of persevering and finding ways to have success. We put ourselves in a good position with a challenging schedule and that will help us immensely going forward. We are excited about next year as we return several starters and welcome a talented group of young players."
