The prestigious Senior CLASS Award has named its 20 finalists for the year in hockey. Of the 20 finalists, Cornell tri-captain Nick D'Agostino was nominated. More information regarding it can be found at the Cornell Sports site. Last year, captain Keir Ross was nominated, and 2010 captain Colin Greening was Cornell's latest winner of the award. Other ECAC nominees include RPI's Nick Bailen, Harvard's Danny Biega, and SLU's Kyle Flanagan. Hockey East, Atlantic Hockey, the CCHA, and the WCHA all have representatives as well. Midway through the season, the finalists are narrowed down to 10 and voting is opened to media, coaches, and fans. WAFT will alert people when voting becomes available for D'Agostino.

We at WAFT happened upon this video of Mayor Bloomberg celebrating Cornell's announcement of the NYC Tech Campus with some humor. We thought it appropriate for the weekend when Cornell once again takes over NYC at Madison Square Garden.
