As a sophomore, LeNeveu led the Cornell Big Red to the 2003 Frozen Four. He set a Cornell record for shutouts that year, nine, topping legendary goalie Ken Dryden's record of six set in 1968. He was selected to the "Hobey Hat Trick", the three finalists for the Hobey Baker Award. Following that season he elected to leave school for professional hockey.
