CORNELL Cancellations
Coach’s Luncheon for this Friday is cancelled. Pursuant to Cornell policy developed to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, any event with more than 100 persons should be cancelled. Our popular Friday luncheons meet this criteria and we will comply with University policy and cancel the luncheon. Regrets to all … stay safe and clean … wash your hands!

Additionally, with Harvard and Yale withdrawing from quarterfinal competition, the ECAC has announced that the top two seeds, Cornell and Clarkson, will have a bye in the quarterfinal round. This leaves Quinnipiac [3] vs. Princeton [11] and Rensselaer [4] vs. Colgate [8] to play for the other semifinal game. As far as we know today, the Championship Weekend in Lake Placid will still be played Friday and Saturday, March 20-21. Cornell [1] will play the number four seed at 4PM. The second semifinal is at 7:30PM. The Championship Final is Saturday, March 21 at 7:30PM.

#1 Women’s Ice Hockey Set to Host Mercyhurst for NCAA First Round

3/8/2020 9:14 PM

ITHACA, N.Y. – The #1 Cornell women’s ice hockey team will host the Mercyhurst Lakers for the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The game, which will take place at Lynah Rink in Ithaca, N.Y., is scheduled for a 2 p.m. puck drop on Saturday, March 14. Purchase tickets here.

The full bracket can be viewed here.

Cornell finished as ECAC Hockey regular-season champions with a league mark of 19-0-3 for their first undefeated regular-season in league play. After defeating Harvard, 4-0, in the semifinals, the Big Red advanced to the ECAC Hockey title game for the 9th time in the last 11 years, but lost to Princeton in overtime, 3-2.

Should the Big Red defeat the Mercyhurst Lakers, Cornell would face the winner of the NCAA quarterfinal between Minnesota and Ohio State in a semifinal match-up in Boston on March 20 (Friday). The Championship game is scheduled for Sunday, March 22 at 4:30 PM. The Women’s Frozen Four venue is Agganis Arena, Boston MA. Tickets can be purchased here.

This marks the eighth time in program history that Cornell has reached the NCAA Tournament. Cornell earned bids in 2019, 2017 and from 2010-14.
