The Cornell Big Red men's lacrosse team represents Cornell University in NCAA Division I men's lacrosse.

History[edit]

As a member of the Ivy League, Cornell has won 29 conference championships (18 outright, 11 shared), more than any other school (Princeton has won 27 – 18 outright, 9 shared). The Ivy League awards the conference championship to the team with the best record at the conclusion of the regular season. If two or more teams are tied with the same record the championship is shared.

The team was undefeated and untied in league play during 17 of their 18 outright championships, the most of any Ivy team.

Since the introduction of the Ivy League lacrosse tournament in 2010 Cornell has won the tournament twice, in 2011 and 2018.

The Big Red have appeared in the NCAA lacrosse tournament 28 times.

The 2004 Cornell lacrosse team

They have won the three championships and were runner up four times, most recently in 2009 when they lost to Syracuse in overtime 10–9.[2]

Cornell maintains one of the oldest rivalries in college lacrosse with the Hobart College Statesmen.[3] Their main Ivy League rivalry is with Princeton.

Cornell has claimed three NCAA national championships and four pre-NCAA era titles. Some of the all-time great lacrosse players and coaches have played for or coached the Big Red, including Mike French, Eamon McEneaney and Richie Moran.

In 2009, Max Seibald won the Tewaaraton Trophy, awarded to the "Most Outstanding" collegiate lacrosse player in the United States.[4]

In 2013, Rob Pannell won the Tewaaraton Trophy while leading Cornell to the NCAA semifinals, also breaking the all-time NCAA career scoring mark that season.

Cornell played their first official season of lacrosse in 1892 and through 2018 have a record of 759-481-37 (.608).[5]
