Coach Billy Pate on the match:
"This was a high-level, closely contested match. Columbia has one of the best teams they've had in several years and I give them credit because it could have gone either way. We played a good doubles point and all six singles were highly competitive. We couldn't quite get the win but I couldn't be more pleased with our effort and determination today. Now it's important to rebound and get ready for a strong George Washington squad."
