Cornell Wrestling Looks to Ride Regular Season Success Into Championship Season
March 02, 2017


It’s not over yet. Despite winning a 15th straight Ivy League title and ending the dual meet season in dominant fashion with an eight-match win streak, Cornell wrestling still has work left to do. The Red (13-2, 5-0 Ivy) will look for an 11th consecutive Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association Championship and attempt to qualify its wrestlers for the NCAA Championships.

Ithaca has been home to the EIWA trophy for the past 10 years — the longest streak in the more than 100 year history of the tournament. Head coach Rob Koll and the Red expect that trophy to come home with them once more.

“The culture is such that anything less than a championship will be a disappointment,” Koll said.
