Cornell University: 2021-2022 Season Preview


Cornell University Big Red


  • The Cornell teams have fallen outside the Top-8 rankings in recent years, but Head Coach David Palmer has fostered a group that is ready to compete for national consideration once again.
  • The women’s team graduated the middle of their lineup, but talented reinforcements have arrived in Ithaca to bolster the Top-8 push.
  • The men’s team is one of several deep squads with several returning starters vying for a Potter Cup (A Division) berth, and they will work to ensure that their 10th-place finish in 2020 is not their upper limit this year.
