Cornell 2014 Schedule Includes Penn State, Stanford, Syracuse

ITHACA, N.Y. Cornell head lacrosse coach Jenny Graap has announced the team's 2014 schedule, a challenging slate that includes six teams that advanced to the NCAA tournament last season, all of whom the Big Red will face in the second half of the season.

Among those tournament teams are non-conference opponents Penn State, Stanford, and Syracuse as well as Ivy League foes Dartmouth, Penn and Princeton.

Cornell opens the regular season at home on Feb. 23, playing host to Temple University a new opponent for the Big Red before hitting the road for games against familiar Ivy and Patriot League opponents in Harvard and Colgate.

In the first of three home double-headers with Cornell on tap for 2014, the Big Red will play host to Columbia on March 8 at 3:00 p.m.

Two more road games follow, as Coach Graap and her team continue their young series' with both Binghamton and Albany on the road.

After a one-year hiatus in the rivalry with Rutgers, the Scarlet Knights return to Schoellkopf Field on Saturday, March 22. The following Tuesday, the team squares off against Stanford for the first time since 2008.

Princeton and Dartmouth are the first two Ivy League teams on the slate in the second half of the season and also the first of four tournament teams for the Big Red in as many games. After a non-conference weekend versus Penn State in State College, Penn., Cornell travels to Brown for its final road contest of 2014.

The team's last three games will all be played at home on Schoellkopf, starting with a midweek contest against familiar central New York rival Syracuse a team which advanced as far as the NCAA quarterfinals in 2013. The Big Red will take on the Orange under the lights on Schoellkopf at 7:00 p.m. in its only night game of the year.

The final two games are Ivy League match-ups; first against Yale on April 19, before closing out the regular season against defending Ivy champion Penn on April 26.
