Light Blue Pride at Homecoming, '99
A Photo Essay

Under bright sunshine that turned a mid-October afternoon into a last gasp of summer, Columbians of all ages demonstrated their Light Blue Pride as they gathered for Homecoming '99 at Baker Field. Unfortunately, the football team couldn't replicate last year's rousing shutout of Harvard, fading in the second half and bowing to Penn 41-17. The loss, before a crowd of 7,702 at Wien Stadium on October 16, snapped a string of five consecutive Homecoming victories for the Lions.

Alumni, students, parents and friends of Columbia enjoyed the festive atmosphere of the balloon-bedecked hospitality tent, including visits from the marching band, the cheerleaders and the Lion. Columbia College Young Alumni even had a stand with cotton candy for the kids (of all ages).

The upbeat mood carried over into the football stadium as the Lions struck first, grabbing a 7-0 lead on a 72-yard screen pass play from Mike Glynn '00 to Johnathan Reese '02. The Lions remained competitive throughout the first half and went into intermission trailing just 21-17, but Penn dominated from the start of the second half and pulled away to win easily.
