Campus-Champ-S-Comins

Campus Champion

Much has been written about SUNY Cortland’s superior athletic teams. But there’s something to be said about one of the people who keep the nearly 700 student-athletes healthy. Sonya Comins ’96, the College’s head athletic trainer, treats every ache and pain, from a football player’s sprained ankle to a cross-country runner’s shin splints. A former basketball player, Comins tore her anterior cruciate ligament during her Cortland career and today helps student-athletes with their recoveries. She supervises a four-person staff, four graduate assistants and field experience learning for athletic training majors, and also teaches two courses in the Kinesiology Department.
