The men are undefeated at home this season and will hope to keep it that way after tonight’s meet. This will also be the first meeting between these two teams at the CSI Sports & Recreation Center in the school’s history. Tonight’s meet will be the final meet before their last CUNYAC meet of the season. CSI will use the meet tonight to prepare for the CUNYAC Championships on February 3 where they will look to win their fourth straight CUNYAC title.
