Cornell Excited for Dedication Weekend

The Big Red is bringing back several starters who were missing from the last two games. Eddie Hogan, Dan Capelin, Chuck Sanderson and Nic Jedema are rejoining John Schuler and captain, Ethan Venosa for what is expected to be a very tough game against the Crimson. Dave Matthews, HRFC President and the entire Harvard team will be hosting what's anticipated to be a large alumni gathering to celebrate the generous donation by Roberto Mignone. Matthews is, "... excited to be dedicating the Mignone Field officially on Saturday afternoon." The dedication is part of a triple header with Cornell men and women playing Harvard. The business school will also play a match during the day.
