Women’s Polo Drops First Game Of the Spring

ITHACA, N.Y. — The Cornell women’s polo team suffered its first loss of the spring Friday night, falling 12-5 to the Skaneateles Polo Club at the Oxley Equestrian Center. 

Cornell trailed by one, 3-2, at the end of the first half before Skaneateles outscored the Big Red 9-3 in the third and fourth chukkers. The Big Red had won seven straight contests coming into the matchup. 

“While it’s always tremendously disappointing to lose a match, I purposely scheduled this game against high-level competition in order to prepare us for the upcoming National Tournament,” Anthony Condo, the Peter B. Orthwein ’68 Head Coach of Polo, said. “In order to really work on and fix those areas where we need to improve, we need to have a game here and there where some of our weaknesses are exploited. 

“We will review the game tape, make adjustments, and structure upcoming practices accordingly to continue to improve.”

Ava RamachandranLara Chong and Isabelle Braden led the scoring effort for Cornell. 

“All things considered, I am pleased with where we are, and I’m confident you’ll see our team make a big run at the National Championship in April,” Condo said. “It will be an exciting time for us and for our fans and supporters.”
