Cornell Big Red Wrestling TicketsFar above Cayuga's waters as the Cornell anthem begins is a wrestling team with an impressive history that began back in 1907. In its initial year, coach E.J. O'Connell brought the team to a pair of .500 finishes for the first two years and a third-place finish at the EIWA (Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association) Championships. Since then, the team has been lead by just five more head coaches in over 100 years of athletics. Under current Coach Rob Koll, who came to the team as an assistant coach during the 1989-1990 season, the team has won two second-place finishes in the NCAA Championships and had seven different four-time NCAA All American wrestlers. Cornell has also had an impressive 39 Ivy League team titles, 25 EIWA team titles and had an individual wrestler in the NCAA finals 29 different times. The team competes during the regular season each fall through spring as a part of the Ivy League of the NCAA before entering post-season play.

Where does Cornell Big Red Wrestling compete?Cornell hosts its wrestlers in the Friedman Wrestling Center. Opened in 2002, the center became the first standalone building devoted solely to college wrestling. The Niemand arena section of the center offers a modular setup with retractable bleachers that can host multiple matches simultaneously or create seating space for 900 to watch two champions compete in a final match. State-of-the-art concert sound systems make it easy to hear scoring and announcements anywhere in the building.

In the first 25 seasons of coaching, he has had at least one qualifying wrestler in the NCAA championships every year.
