SUNY Cortland junior Ryan Cory (Beacon) has been honored as a national third team Division III Men’s Track and Field/Cross Country Academic All-American for the 2021-22 school year by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). 

A sport management major, Cory had a 3.91 cumulative grade point average prior to the 2022 spring semester. 

During the 2021 cross country season, Cory earned All-America honors with a 40th-place national finish and was the Niagara Regional qualifier champion. He also earned first team All-SUNYAC honors with a fourth-place showing. He was named the USTFCCCA Niagara Region Men's Cross Country Athlete of the Year and the SUNYAC Men's Cross Country Co-Runner of the Year. 

Cory set school records during the track and field seasons in both the 3,000 meters indoors (8:19.14) and 5,000 meters outdoors (14:18.10). He was an NCAA indoor national qualifier in the 3,000 meters, placing 14th nationally, in addition to winning the title in that event at the AARTFC championships. He also finished second in the SUNYAC in the mile run. During the outdoor season, Cory was All-SUNYAC with a third-place finish in the 5,000 meters. 

Cortland student-athletes have now earned 41 Academic All-America honors, including 21 since 2011. Cortland’s previous men’s track and field/cross country honorees were Brent DiVittorio (third team in 2019-20) and Connor Christopherson (third team in 2016-17)
