Cornell's Best and Brightest: Mitch and Matt

Cornellís lacrosse team is what the Ivy League is all about: True scholar-athletes competing to be the very best in the country. Itís a shame that college athletics is sometimes anything but.

Cornell lacrosse co-captains and All-Americans, Mitch Belisle and Matt McMonagle, have been nominated for the Loweís Senior Class Award, for achievement both on the playing field and in the classroom. Fans can vote once a day for their picks on this website; given the sheer size of Cornellís student body and alumni base, there should be no reason for a Cornellian not to winÖ especially given that Cornell is the only school to have two students nominated.

Matt is a physics major in the College of Arts and Sciences, and is considered to be the best college goalie in the country. Mitch is in the School of Industrial and Labor Relations, plays defense for the Red, and has consistently shut down the nationís best offensive threats. To boot, both are active volunteers in the Cornell community and have posted absurdly high GPAs over the last couple of semesters.

You can read interviews with Belislehere and here. McMonagle was interviewed by the Daily Sun today.

The last time a Cornell team won a national championship in an NCAA sanctioned sport was 1977. Itís been thirty years, folks.

Full disclosure: Mitch Belisle was a student of mine when I was a teaching assistant for a statistics class during my senior year. He was the best student I had my section.
