There are 1,112 varsity athletes at Cornell, 220 of them seniors. Of those 220, we in the Sun sports department were faced with the tall task of choosing 25 for inclusion in our spread. Well, technically, including our Athlete of the Year, there’s 26, which is pretty unprecedented. Then again, one could argue that the accomplishments of this senior class are unprecedented as well. Just as difficult as choosing the Top 25 (if not more) was photographing them all individually in the span of 20 days. That said, many thanks go to Sun photographer Tina Chou. Without her these pictures, and accompanying slideshow on www.cornellsun.com (which includes additional athlete portraits), would not have been possible.
