Campus Champion

Eight SUNY Cortland skaters, a goalie and two alumni coaches just returned from the National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association championships in Kalamazoo, Michigan. First-year Michael Luzopone scored three goals in the Division III national championship game, a 6-4 loss to the Ohio State University. Despite the final result, it was a worthwhile and memorable trip for the team. Michael, a business economics major from Queens who has played hockey and roller hockey all his life, credits the team’s great chemistry for beating some of the biggest schools in the country on the way to the national final. Men’s Club Roller Hockey is the latest sport club team making SUNY Cortland proud on a national stage.
