If there's ever a time to cheer for Cornell Women's athletics (besides every day), it's today! The Cornell Women's Ice Hockey team and Cornell Women's Basketball team are traveling away for the NCAA tournament and Ivy Madness, respectively.
Cornell Women's Ice Hockey
After a heart-breaking loss to Clarkson in the ECAC Championship final, the Cornell Women's Ice Hockey team were granted one more shot at the NCAA title by receiving an "at-large bid."
Cornell earned its first ECAC regular season championship since 2013 with a 17-3-2 record. Head Coach Doug Derraugh was named the ECAC's coach of the year, and #14 Jaime Bourbonnais was named the best defenseman.
The Big Red faces #3 Northeastern University at Matthews Arena. The two have only met twice since 2002. The NCAA will stream the game live at 1pm ET. To watch, go to: http://bit.ly/ncaacornell
