No. 16 men's tennis exits NCAA tournament with loss to No. 1 Ohio State


Goswami, Columbia’s winningest coach, is retiring after a 37-year career that most recently saw him lead the Lions to six consecutive Ivy League titles.


Ohio State’s Hunter Tubert and John McNally finished the job with a 6-3 win over the tandem of junior Adam Ambrozy and sophomore Jason Lui, giving the Buckeyes the early 1-0 lead.


At sixth singles, sophomore Austen Huang dropped his match 6-1, 6-4 to Tubert, giving Ohio State its second point of the day.


In a season where the Light Blue won the Ivy League title outright by rallying back from a deficit against Cornell, the possibility was still likely.


Associate Head Coach Howard Endelman will take over as head coach following Goswami’s retirement, and though Lions will lose seniors Victor Pham, Tim Wang, and Will Matheson, three players who have been instrumental in the team’s success over the past four years, Goswami sees a bright future ahead.


While the team’s season unfortunately ended when it was unable to clinch the win against Ohio State, Pham, Lin, and Matheson will travel to Orlando, Florida to compete in the NCAA Division I Men’s Tennis Singles and Doubles Championships.
