Jenny Graap 11th Year at Cornell • Cornell ‘86 Head Coach of Women’s Lacrosse Jenny Graap returned to her alma mater in 1997 with one goal in mind: to build the Cornell women’s lacrosse team into a championship contender. Now entering her 11th year at the helm, the 2002 Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Coach of the Year and 2006 Inside Lacrosse Magazine and IWLCA Northeast Coach of the Year has developed the Big Red women’s lacrosse program into one of the most successful in the nation. Graap has built an Ivy League and national title contender in her first 10 years. She has posted a 99-57 record at Cornell and a 120101 mark in 14 years as a head coach. With her first victory, she’ll become the second Cornell lacrosse coach to reach 100 wins. In her tenure at Cornell, Graap has had 46 All-Ivy selections, 33 IWLCA Regional All-Americans, 13 IWLCA national All-Americans, three CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, two Ivy League Players of the Year and one national player of the year finalist. Her teams have reached postseason play in six of the last nine years and have won at least 10 games five times. Courtney Farrell was named first-team all-region in 2007 after setting the school record for single-season assists (34). She joined classmate Katherine Simmons as an all-region and first-team All-Ivy pick. Despite finishing 5-10, all 10 of the team’s losses came against squads that were nationally ranked at the time of the game or moved into the rankings after a win over the Big Red. In 2006, Graap directed a team featuring just four seniors to a share of the program’s first Ivy title, leading the Big Red to a 12-4 overall record and its third NCAA tournament appearance. The 12 wins in a season ranks third all-time at Cornell, while the six Ivy wins tied the school record set by her 2002 squad. For her efforts, Graap was named the IWLCA and Inside Lacrosse Northeast Region Coach of

the Year. The Big Red also completed its second undefeated home slate (7-0). In all, 11 of the team’s top 12 scorers were underclassmen, setting Cornell up for even bigger things in 2007. Graap did all of this despite a schedule that featured 10 games against teams ranked at some point during the season, including a win over NCAA finalist Dartmouth, as well as victories over perennial powerhouses Syracuse, Yale and Vanderbilt. Senior goalkeeper Maggie Fava was selected as Ivy League co-Player of the Year, while five players earned first-team All-Ivy honors, four were first-team all-region picks, and Fava (third-team), Margaux Viola (third-team) and Anne Riordan (second-team) were named to the IWLCA All-America teams. In 2005, Cornell posted a strong 9-6 record, finishing the season ranked No. 17 in the final IWLCA poll. Graap’s young squad toppled four teams ranked in the top 20 during the season and also defeated NCAA bound Patriot League champion Colgate. The team’s 4-3 mark in Ancient Eight play was good for a third-place tie in the final standings and represented the fifth season in the last six years Cornell has posted a winning league record. Eight of the team’s top 11 scorers were freshmen or sophomores. The 2004 campaign was a trying one for Graap and the Big Red, but the 6-9 season may have been one of her best coaching efforts. After losing a combined six All-Americans in the previous two years, Graap took a team with just two seniors that dropped eight of its first nine games and turned the ship around, helping Cornell to five wins in its last six contests. The Big Red knocked off nationally ranked Rutgers and Syracuse, as well as NCAA tournament participant and Patriot League champion Colgate. It also dropped one-goal decisions to NCAA semifinalist Vanderbilt and Ivy League runner-up Dartmouth on the road. Cornell claimed its second Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference title in four years to cap off an 11-5 campaign in 2003. The team finished the season ranked No. 12 nationally in the IWLCA poll and defeated three

Despite another treacherous schedule, a senior-laden squad that was the backbone of that title-winning team will face their last opportunity to make history. Coming off a 2007 season that saw the Big Red go 5-10 with all 10 defeats coming at the hands of IWLCA top 20 squads, Cornell has the pieces to bounce back quickly. Four All-Ivy players return, including three from the Big Red’s quick-strike offense. A young defense that had an up-and-down year in 2007 is now an experienced unit intent on returning to the Big Red’s roots of ranking among the top squads in the country in scoring defense. Led by returning two-time first-team All-Ivy picks Courtney Farrell and Katherine Simmons, as well as four-year veterans Noelle Dowd, Amanda Linnertz, Charlotte Schmidlapp and Ashleigh Smith, Cornell enters the season highly motivated to prove last season was a fluke. The last time the Big Red posted a losing record, it fought back to a 21-10 record over the next two seasons with a 10-4 Ivy mark. The Big Red will again challenge themselves with a schedule that will be one of the toughest in the country. Eight of the 15 scheduled contests will come against teams that were ranked in the final 2007 IWLCA Top 20 poll. Non-league games against ranked teams from Rutgers, Hofstra, Vanderbilt, Syracuse and Notre Dame highlight the schedule and give the Big Red opportunities to boost their NCAA resume. The Ivy League will again be one of the toughest conferences in the country. Besides 2007 Final Four participant Penn, three other Ivy schools (Dartmouth, Princeton and Yale) were ranked in the top 10 at some point during the 2007 season. THE ATTACK

Cornell returns one of the most productive attackers in the country and several additional key players in what should be a balanced and effective group. Two year junior national team member Courtney Farrell joins senior captains Charlotte Schmidlapp and Noelle Dowd, as well as sophomore Kathryn Dewey as double figure scorers at the position. Also attempting to make names for themselves will be junior Halsey Diakow, sophomores Natalie Curreri and freshmen Libby Johnson and Claire Poza. A two-time first-team All-Ivy selection, Farrell returns as the team’s leading scorer and one of the most creative and talented scorers in the country. She set a school record for single-season assists in 2007, helping on 34 tallies overall while recording 67 total points, the secondhighest mark in school history. Farrell had a career-best 30 points in Ivy play and scored on better than 50 percent of her shots for the season. An incredible natural talent, she has all the skills necessary to be an unguardable go-to player. As opponents continue to focus their defenses to stop her, Farrell will have the responsibility of becoming a distributor for one of the nation’s most explosive offenses. Dowd was a second-team All-Ivy selection as a junior after placing second on the team in scoring (37 points). A strong all-around player, she reached double figures in ground balls (16), draw controls (15) and caused turnovers (13). The team tri-captain is not only a strong offensive player, but she also is an aggressive re-defender on the ride and can slide into the midfield when needed. Schmidlapp had a breakout junior season and will be expected to again be one of the team’s most dangerous offensive threats. She has the ability to be a dominant scorer thanks to her tremendous instincts, while her ability to see the field and find open teammates make her more than a onedimensional scorer. The 5-8 attacker has unrivaled stick skills. Schmidlapp is a tremendous competitor who will serve as a team tri-captain. After a solid rookie campaign, Dewey will be an even bigger part of the offense as a sophomore. The 5-11 Dewey registered 10 goals and 11 total points while coming off the bench in 13 contests in 2007. A big target around the crease, Dewey has the potential to become a dominant force on the offensive end with her size and scorer’s mentality. Diakow and Curreri enter the 2008 season attempting to break into the rotation. Diakow played in two contests as a sophomore and is a vocal member of the unit. Curreri played in one game as a freshman, but the 5-4 attacker has excellent speed and can break down her defender to get her own shot or to find an open teammate. Both Johnson and Poza enter their first seasons at Cornell after outstanding prep careers that featured state titles. Johnson was a member of the two-time New York state champion Skaneateles HS team, ending her career with more than 300 points. The 5-7 Johnson had a prolific senior year, registering 56 goals and dishing off 56 assists. Poza brings additional quickness to the table after earning two IWLCA All-America honors while at Florida’s Wellington HS. She helped her team to a state title as a freshman. THE MIDFIELD The deepest position on the roster for the Big Red remains at midfield, where All-Ivy pick Katherine Simmons leads a talented corps that includes junior Jessica Wiegand and sophomores Kaitlyn Giles, Morgan Hale, Lindsey Kane and Tissy O’Connor. Freshmen Julia Nissi, Elizabeth Tillotson and Michelle Winglee also have an opportunity to earn playing time. Simmons is one of the top midfielders in the country and will again lend her two-way talents to helping the Big Red attempt to capture the Ancient Eight title. The two-time first-team All-Ivy selection was second on the team in goals (32) and led the squad in both ground balls (35) and caused turnovers (19). A superior athlete blessed with great speed and strength, Simmons will again be looked at to be one of Cornell’s go-to players. Wiegand picked up her play as a sophomore after a strong freshman campaign. A dynamic player who can create for herself and her teammates, she scored 14 points in her 15 games. Wiegand ‘s speed in

THE GOALKEEPERS A pair of returning goalkeepers will have a spirited competition for the starting slot in the cage, as junior Renee Hughes and sophomore Kristen Reese look to lead the Big Red defense in their run toward a second Ivy League title in three years. Hughes has the most experience of the two players after splitting time in goal with graduated senior Mary Montague. The transfer from Quinnipiac opened eight games in her first season on East Hill and saw action in 13 total contests. Hughes ended the year with a 13.46 goals against average and a .376 save percentage, recording 19 ground balls and a pair of caused turnovers. She had at least eight saves in four different contests and showed flashes of being an outstanding option with improved consistency. She provides good size in goal and is also very skilled with the ball, which should help Cornell’s transition game. Reese spent much of her freshman season adjusting to the college game, but earned the praises of the coaching staff with her work ethic and ability to quickly pick up the defensive schemes. Reese saw action in two contests for a total of 14 minutes, making two saves and allowing three goals in her limited time. An excellent athlete, Reese was a part-time field player in high school and a two-time honorable mention All-America selection at the Severn School.

THE DEFENSE After being one of the most inexperienced units a season ago, this year’s defense has plenty of op-

tions from which to choose. Returning starters Ashleigh Smith, Amanda Linnertz, Deirdre Lafferty and Kelly Hansen will join key returners Marla Diakow, Megan Gray and Alexa Shimizu. Freshmen Cara Grealy, Norah Kennedy and Jane Peters will also attempt to break into the rotation in their first season at Cornell. Smith returns for a fifth season and will provide key leadership in the back. An All-Ivy selection as a junior, Smith is a fiery competitor who has outstanding instincts and is a good communicator. She is an all-around player who can win the ground ball fight or the tough draw and also has the skill to dominate in the backfield. Smith’s versatility may also allow her to move into the midfield rotation. Linnertz moved from midfield into the back full-time as a junior and benefitted from the move, starting all 15 games and ranking among the team leaders in draws won (15). A strong defender who understands all of the team’s concepts, she will be relied on heavily to provide a steadying influence in the back, as well as experienced leadership. After a breakout season as a sophomore, Lafferty posted careerbest numbers in ground balls (23), caused turnovers (14) and draw controls (6) in 2007. Lafferty possesses tremendous speed and can play line defense or on a mark with equal skill. She emerged as one of the team’s top defenders over the second half of the year, including forcing eight turnovers and scooping up seven ground balls in the final three games of the year. One of the team’s quickest players, Hansen started all 15 games as one of the top mark-up defenders and will likely play a similar role in her junior campaign. She was often put on one of the opposing team’s top offensive threats and was productive throughout the year, registering 18 ground balls and nine caused turnovers. Diakow was one of the team’s most improved players last year and will have a chance to contribute on line defense in 2008. The senior saw action in a career-best five games a season ago and earned her first career start when she opened the Hofstra game. A team leader, her hard work will continue to be a great example for the team’s 18 underclassmen. Sophomores Megan Gray and Alexa Shimizu combined to play in just eight games as freshmen, but have the potential to become solid defenders in the Big Red’s scheme. Gray played in six contests and had two ground balls and a caused turnover, while Shimizu had two caused turnovers and a ground ball in two games off the bench as a rookie. Grealy, Kennedy and Peters will all have an opportunity to join the lineup in their first seasons on the roster. All three had tremendously successful prep careers. Grealy was a two-time IWLCA Scholastic AllAmerican at Yorktown HS, while Kennedy was a two-time all-section pick at Rye HS. Peters was a Central Massachusetts all-star at Phillips Andover Academy.

General Information

transition and contribution to the defense will be as important as her offensive production. Both Hale and O’Connor had solid freshman seasons in 2007 and have a chance to play even greater roles this year. As a rookie, Hale played in 13 games with one start and posted two goals and an assist to go along with nine ground balls and three caused turnovers. O’Connor started four games and played in 10 total, winning 10 draws, seven ground balls and causing three turnovers. Sophomore transfer Kaitlyn Giles will also have a chance to earn playing time in her first season on East Hill. Giles played in 13 contests with one start, scoring three goals with an assist as a freshman at Brown. She added seven ground balls, two caused turnovers and two draw controls. Kane is a player who will have a chance to see an expanded role this season. She is a tough competitor who makes her teammates better everyday. Three freshmen will hope to see time in the midfield in 2008, Julia Nissi, Elizabeth Tillotson and Michelle Winglee all enter their first seasons. Nissi was an IWLCA honorable mention AllAmerican at Milton Academy, while Tillotson was a two-time all-league pick at Thayer Academy and Winglee captured All-American honors as a senior at Sidwell Friends School.

Big Red Timeline

1972 Women’s lacrosse was first recognized on the varsity level in 1972. The program’s first-ever game, under head coach Sue Tyler, was played against local rival Ithaca College. Though the team would lose 7-4, it went on to win their very next game against a tough Brockport team 13-3, and would finish the season with a 3-2 record. 1975 Head coach Judy Kosstrin takes the helm for the Big Red, as the team played games on Jessup Field. Cornell defeats Penn 8-7 in the first-ever meeting between the Big Red and an Ivy League opponent. 1977 Cheryl Wolf becomes the head coach and leads the team to consecutive wins over William Smith, Hartwick and Ithaca. 1978 The Big Red posts the program’s first winning record since its inaugural season when it went 3-2 by going 7-2-2 on the season. The program hosted the second annual NYSAIAW lacrosse championship, falling to Brockport in the final. 1979 The team moves its home games to Schoellkopf Field. 1980 Cornell would compete against a “full” Ivy League schedule for the first time, finishing 0-6. The only Ivy League school that did not have a women’s lacrosse program at this point was Columbia, who would launch their program 17 years later in 1997. The first All-Ivy Team was selected, with Carol Johnson and Cate Snow capturing honorable mention honors. 1981 Another year of firsts, the Big Red recorded its first-ever Ivy League win with a 10-5 effort over Brown, as well as its first New York state championship with triumphs over Rochester, William Smith and Cortland. 1983 Cornell captures its second New York state title in three years, defeating Colgate 10-4 in the final.

1985 Cornell registers its first win over Princeton in program history, topping the Tigers 11-10 on the road behind captains Jenny Graap, Kate Howard-Johnson and Leane Sinicki.

1994 The Ivy League established itself as one of the dominate leagues in the country, as every active Ivy League team entered the 1994 season ranked among the nation’s Top 20 teams. Though Cornell would go on to finish a disappointing 4-10 overall and 0-6 in the Ivy League, their record did not accurately reflect the caliber of the team. The Big Red dropped four of their 10 games in overtime, including a triple overtime showdown vs. Brown early in the season. Additionally, the Big Red would finish the season with two decisive wins. In the last game of the season, a 22-11 win vs. Rutgers, senior Sara Gur tied the school record for goals in a game (8) and set a new school record for points in a game (10). Cornell also won on the road at No. 10 Vermont.

This Is Cornell


General Information The Coaching Staff Meet The Big Red

In the mid 1800s, two New York state senators, Ezra Cornell and Andrew Dickson White, shared the bold dream of founding a “truly great university.” Cornell, a plain-spoken inventor, wanted “an institution where any person can find instruction in any study,” including the mechanical arts and agriculture. White, a scholarly graduate of Oxford and Yale, yearned to establish a university where “truth shall be taught for truth’s sake” in the arts and sciences. Together they created a nonsectarian university that was the first in the eastern United States to admit women and that pioneered the concept of elective courses. Their egalitarian vision and innovative ideas, which set Cornell apart at its opening in 1868, continue to guide the university today. Cornell includes 13 colleges and schools. On the Ithaca campus are the seven undergraduate units—the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences; the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning; the College of Arts and Sciences; the College of Engineering; the School of Hotel Administration; the College of Human Ecology; and the School of Industrial and Labor Relations—as well as four graduate and professional units: the Graduate School, the Law School, the Johnson Graduate School of Management, and the College of Veterinary Medicine. (The Weill Medical College and the Weill Graduate School of Medical Sciences are in New York City.) An Ivy League university that is also the land grant institution of New York State, Cornell is a unique combination of public and private divisions committed to teaching, research, and public service. Cornell’s 13,700 undergraduates and 6,000 graduate and professional students come from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. Interdisciplinary study and research are

Cornell hallmarks, as is attention to undergraduate education. The university’s 2,200 faculty members are active teachers as well as researchers—Nobel laureates often conduct introductory courses— and the lines of traditional disciplines are easily crossed. Engineering students dabble in photography; theatre arts students explore the world of computers; physics majors learn landscape architecture. National Science Foundation studies on programs in research and development at U.S. universities consistently rank Cornell among the top 10 or 11 in total research and development expenditures, and in federally financed expenditures. Cornell ranks second among U.S. universities in funds allocated by the National Science Foundation for programs in academic science and engineering. Cornell has five national research centers: the Center for High Energy Synchrotron Studies, the Floyd R. Newman Laboratory of Nuclear Studies, the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (which operates the world’s largest radio-radar telescope, in

2007 Season Review

Cornell may be a cutting-edge research university, but that doesn’t mean undergraduate education is an afterthought. A Cornell undergrad could spend the morning in a meeting with a professor for an independent study and the afternoon in large survey courses like psych 101. Students here work hard. Besides attending classes, there’s reading, writing, and research, not to mention preparing for exams. But students still find time to build friendships, volunteer off campus, hold part-time jobs and play sports. And while some students spend their four years close to campus, many go farther afield. They study natural medicinals in South America, marine biology off the coast of Maine, and public policy in Albany, N.Y. In addition to universityrun programs in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Rome, Italy, Cornellians travel to sites around the world, polishing their language skills and broadening their horizons.

Arecibo, Puerto Rico), the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility, and the National Science and Technology Center for Computer Graphics and Scientific Visualization. The university also has four national resource centers: the Latin American Studies Program, the East Asia Program, the South Asia Program, and the Southeast Asia Program. Cornell University Library’s 17 Ithaca-campus units provide an array of reference, information, and instructional services. At the southeast edge of the Arts Quad, Olin and Kroch libraries house the largest concentration of resources in the humanities, social sciences, and area studies, including extensive Asia collections, and rare books, manuscripts, and archival materials. Mann Library, on the Ag Quad, has materials in agriculture, biology, biotechnology, and related fields. Other libraries specialize in African and African American studies, engineering, entomology, the fine arts, hotel management, industrial and labor relations, law, management, mathematics, music, the physical sciences, and veterinary medicine. Famed for its woodlands, gorges, and waterfalls, the 745-acre main campus is on a hilltop overlooking Ithaca, a lively city of about 30,000 situated at the southern end of 44-mile-long Cayuga Lake, in the Finger Lakes region of New York state. Campus attractions of special interest include the Johnson Museum of Art, the Cornell Plantations, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Sapsucker Woods wildlife sanctuary. The heart of New York state’s wine-growing region is less than an hour away, as are the Corning Glass Center and Museum and the Watkins Glen auto circuit. New York City is about a four-hour drive from Ithaca.

General Information

At a research institution, scholars don’t just acquire knowledge ��� they help create it. Cornell’s faculty members have garnered such prizes as the Nobel and the Pulitzer, not to mention MacArthur “genius” grants and countless other honors. These same luminaries teach undergraduate classes and include students on their research teams. Cornell serves as a land grant institution, receiving funding from New York State for its colleges of Human Ecology, Agriculture and Life Sciences and Veterinary Medicine and for its School of Industrial and Labor Relations. In return, the university offers reduced tuition to state residents in those colleges and helps citizens apply the research generated here to improve the state’s economy and the health of its people. A network of more than 200,000 alumni around the world supports the efforts of current students by sponsoring internships, offering career counseling and mentorship, and providing much of the financial support that maintains the university’s world-class libraries, laboratories, and faculty. Four thousand courses offered by nearly 100 departments, more interdisciplinary programs than you’ll find at any other university in the country, research opportunities for undergraduates in nearly every field, and faculty-guided independent study give you the wherewithal to shape a program that speaks to your interests and passions and grows with you over your four years here.


Nestled in the heart of New York State’s beautiful Finger Lakes region is Tompkins County, with Ithaca at its center. Long known for the excellence of its educational and research institutions, and more recently for its multitude of scenic wonders, Ithaca is indeed, “Gorges.” • Ithaca and Tompkins County are located in the central Finger Lakes Region of New York State, five hours from New York City, three hours from Niagara Falls, two hours from Rochester and 4.5 hours from Philadelphia.

Ithaca is America’s best emerging city - Cities Ranked & Rated -

• The 14 counties in the Finger Lakes Region cover more than 9,000 square miles, or roughly the size of New Hampshire or Vermont, and slightly larger than the state of New Jersey.

Ithaca, N.Y.

The beauty of Ithaca and the Cornell campus is unmatched. Ithaca is host to over 150 waterfalls, all of which lie within a 10-mile radius of downtown.

His position was endowed in December 2003 by Jack ’58 and Diane ’61 Meakem and Scott Smith ’79. Jack is a former oarsman and member of Cornell’s Athletic Hall of Fame, while Scott wrestled under Noel during his time on East Hill. The Big Red teams have parlayed Noel’s accomplishments into success on and off the playing field. Cornell’s athletic teams have won 41 Ivy League team titles and 10 national championships during his tenure and have posted a cumulative .510 winning percentage or better in seven of his first eight seasons, including a .541 percentage in 2006-07. The program captured 31 Ivy titles from 2002-03 through 2005-06, setting a Cornell record dating back to the inception of the Ivy League, including a record nine in 2005-06. Academically in 2006-07, nine student-athletes were named to academic all-district teams, with three of those earning Academic AllAmerica honors, bringing Cornell’s five-year total to 15, among the most of any school in the Ivy League.

The Friedman Center

Champions are crowned during the season, but championships are earned long before competition begins. Cornell’s 900 varsity athletes have exclusive access to one of the newest and best training facilities in the nation—the 8,000-square-foot Friedman Strength and Conditioning Center. Completed in June 1997, this impressive $2 million addition to Bartels Hall reflects the university’s strong commitment to athletic excellence. Coaches and team members alike credit the center, its world-class equipment, and first-rate staff with adding immensely to the success of the Big Red athletic program. The Friedman Center contains freeweight, selectorized, plyometric, and cardiovascular equipment and has been designed to meet the diverse training needs of Cornell’s athletes. The center can accommodate up to 100 users at a time without compromising safety or function. Its unique features include airconditioning, a 175-watt stereo system, and damage-resistant flooring. Cornell’s varsity strength and conditioning program—nicknamed “Big Red Power”—focuses on enhancing performance and preventing injury. The new facility and equipment enable the staff to prescribe year-round sport-specific programs with variety and precision. Before the training programs are designed, the muscular and metabolic needs for each sport—and for each position within the sport—are analyzed. Athletes are then assessed to identify their individual strengths and weaknesses, and follow-up assessments are conducted at regular intervals. Comprehensive workouts are prescribed to address deficiencies and promote the development of skills used during competition. Injury prevention also is emphasized. Through resistance training, the number and the severity of injuries are reduced. If an injury does occur, the strength and conditioning staff works closely with the sports medicine staff to ensure a safe and complete rehabilitation. The objective is to allow the athlete to resume full Jay Andress participation as soon as possible. Assistant Strength Coach

The Coaching Staff

The Ivy League is truly one of a kind. While the 2006-07 academic year marks the 50th season of official Ivy League athletic competition, the rivalries and traditions in the League go so much deeper. The first official athletic competition between League schools was more than 150 years ago (1852, Harvard-Yale rowing) and the first football game was more than 130 years ago (1872, Columbia-Yale). In the early days, the Ivy schools dominated college athletics. All-America status, Olympic medals and national championships were routinely earned by students from the Ancient Eight. Today, Ivy Leaguers continue to claim national titles and Olympic medals — as well as All-America and Academic All-America status. Hundreds continue athletic careers as professionals and hundreds more as coaches and athletic administrators. The student-athletes also are among the nation’s leading public servants, doctors, journalists, lawyers, scientists, scholars, business leaders, entertainers, educators and so much more. The success of the League comes without athletic scholarships while maintaining self-imposed high academic standards. The Ivy League has demonstrated a rare willingness and ability, given the pressures on intercollegiate success throughout the nation, to abide by these rules and still compete successfully in Division I athletics. Sponsoring conference championships in 33 men’s and women’s sports, and averaging more than 35 varsity teams at each school, the Ivy League provides intercollegiate athletic opportunities for more men and women than any other conference in the country. All eight Ivy schools are among the “top 20” of NCAA Division I schools in number of sports offered for both men and women. The term “Ivy colleges” was first in October, 1933 by Stanley Woodward of the New York Herald Tribune to describe the eight current Ivy schools (plus Army). On Feb. 8, 1935, Associated Press sports editor Alan Gould first used the exact term “Ivy League.” The first “Ivy Group Agreement,” signed in 1945, applied only to football. It affirmed the observance of common practices in academic standards and eligibility requirements and the administration of need-based financial aid, with no athletic scholarships. The agreement created the Presidents Policy Committee, including the eight Presidents; the Coordination and Eligibility Committee, made up of one senior non-athletic administrator from each school; and the committee on Administration, comprised of the eight directors of athletics. The Ivy Presidents extended the Ivy Group Agreement to all intercollegiate sports in February 1954. Their statement also focused on presidential governance of the League, the importance of intra-League competition, and a desire that recruited athletes be academically ‘representative’ of each institution¹s overall student body. Although that is the League¹s official founding date, the first year of competition was 1956-57. The Ivy League office is housed in Princeton, N.J., under the leadership of Executive Director Jeffrey H. Orleans, who has been at that post since 1984.

Chris Wlosinski Ninth Year at Cornell The Andrew ‘78 & Margaret Paul Assistant Director of Athletics for Student Services and Compliance Chris Wlosinski took over the role of the Andrew ‘78 and Margaret Paul Director of Student-Athlete Support Services in August 2001 and was promoted to Assistant Athletic Director for Student Services and Compliance in March 2005. In her position, she has assumed a dedicated role focused on student-athlete support and compliance with NCAA and Ivy League rules. Cornell and its counterparts embrace a philosophy that includes the notion that student-athletes should experience a mainstream collegiate life, but the university also recognized the extra demands placed on this special population. In August of 1998, the position, the first of its kind in the Ivy League, was created, a role that asks Wlosinski to work as an available and reliable adviser who understands the lifestyle student-athletes lead and assists them in balancing their academic, athletic and personal challenges. In this capacity she also serves as a liaison with the colleges and directs student-athletes to appropriate campus-wide resources for academic and personal needs. When Wlosinski first joined the Big Red program, she worked collaboratively with the director of student-athlete support services, coaches and administrators to provide counseling and academic support services serving 36 varsity sports. She developed and maintained personal contacts with ad-

ministrators and professors throughout Cornell’s seven colleges, and she assisted the director in monitoring the academic progress of student-athletes. Most of Wlosinski’s time is devoted to personal meetings with student-athletes, and while the bulk of her work focuses on freshmen, sophomores and transfer students, she does assist athletes from all classes and across all colleges at Cornell. Wlosinski came to Cornell in August 1999 and worked in compliance, student services and event management. In June 2000, she accepted the position of associate director of alumni affairs and development for athletics where she served until assuming her current position. Prior to joining the Cornell staff, Wlosinski spent a year each as an athletics administrative intern at Bates College and Plymouth State College. She also served as a special education teacher for the learning disabled for seven years in Lancaster, Pa. Wlosinski graduated from Millersville University in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in special education and from Plymouth State College in 1999 with a master’s degree in education.

General Information

Prominent Cornell Alumni


To be a Cornellian is to be among the best and Cornell University’s intercollegiate athletic program is no different, ranking among the nation’s elite. The Big Red competes at the highest level of intercollegiate athletic competition as an NCAA Division I institution. Rich tradition and history follow Cornell athletics throughout the university’s storied past. Cornellians have been national champions in ice hockey, lacrosse, polo, rowing, track and field and wrestling. They have also earned spots in halls of fame, on All-America teams, on the Olympic medal podium and have written their names in record books as Wimbledon tennis champions and major league players in baseball, basketball, football and hockey. More recently, Cornell has won 37 Ivy League titles in the last four years, including six during the 2006-07 season. That is only part of the equation. Over the last five seasons, the Big Red has had 15 student-athletes named Academic All-Americans.

The Department of Athletics and Physical Education strives to provide students with powerful and meaningful participatory experiences that forge enduring bonds with Cornell, and to provide for the well-being of members of the faculty, staff, and community. We offer a diverse program of physical and outdoor education, recreational services, and intercollegiate athletic competition, equitably adminstered with special attention to the needs of women and members of under-represented minority groups. We foster the values of physical fitness, total well-being, and enduring participation in athletics; teach leadership skills, teamwork, responsibility, and accountability; and administer programs that can be critical to the educational and personal development of students in keeping with the high standards of Cornell, the Ivy League, the Eastern College Athletic Conference, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The department promotes pride and unity within the university community and provides opportunities to develop, strengthen and maintain ties to external audiences such as alumni, friends, the educational community, and the general public by attracting interest, recognition and support.
