Campus Champion

Grace Schnorr ’21 is a natural leader. A team captain and top scorer for Cortland’s women’s hockey team, she’s tenacious on the ice and focused on post-season play. Grace, who is pursuing her master’s in exercise science, led the Red Dragons in this past Saturday’s National Girls and Women in Sports Day game against No. 2 nationally ranked SUNY Plattsburgh at Upstate Medical University Arena in Syracuse. The day appreciates the achievements of female coaches and female athletes and acknowledges the role they play to help unlock the endless potential of women.
