Despite Numerous Challenges, Senior Leadership Thrives in 2019-20 Cornell Wrestling Season
March 18, 2020


From start to finish, the 2019-2020 Cornell wrestling campaign was accompanied by unusual circumstances. The Red ventured into uncharted territory without its star wrestlers, which it lost to the Olympic redshirt, and the team faced a premature conclusion to its season due to the mounting concerns over the novel coronavirus.

Such abnormalities presented the team with unprecedented challenges, but nothing that the seasoned athletes were not ready to face. Despite the season’s drawbacks, the Red achieved a season record of 11-7 and a conference record of 4-1. More importantly, Cornell accomplished its wins and suffered its losses as a team with humility and grit.
