I’m wrong. He was a 2019 grad. Didn’t greyshirt. 

So he was almost done with HS, then moved to Ithaca and graduated from diploma mill. It actually makes sense if his focus is on wrestling.

Unless the wrestlers are that far below the other students.

Just looked attractive the roster and saw that Yapoujian is a graduate of Jeffco Virtual Academy (though he wrestled somewhere else). Looks like Jeffco is a school for kids who don't wanna go to school. Must be an interesting story about how he wound up there and then wound up at Cornell.

Jeffco Virtual Academy is a branch of the Jefferson County, CO school system:  https://jeffcovirtual.jeffcopublicschools.org/  As I recall it's open to all students in Colorado.

Just another sign that the world is changing.  Not everyone graduates HS in four years, not everyone takes four years to major in one subject in college.

Yapoujian's situation is unique, at least right now.  The time he spent at Finger Lakes coincided with his senior year of high school.  The following year (2019-20) he was on Cornell's roster.  I remember discussing this on-line, and while it's a little weird it was Yapoujian's true freshman year even if it didn't look like one.

i prefer the all-things-cornell thread to a million single topic threads. 

Yapoujian got injured over winter break and never returned to the lineup

Thanks for your thoughts on Yapoujian vs. Richard.

So based on your previous response you think that Saunders beats Richard out for 149, if Yianni stays at 141?  It would kinda be sad to bench a senior, returning EIWA 2nd/NCAA qualifier for a unproven freshman (no matter how highly ranked a recruit the freshman is).

Buck is a well-known disparager of Cornell due to their long time dominance of Lehigh.  Pls don’t put much stock in what he says.

You mean "previous long time dominance of Lehigh", don't you?

Hmm....LU has won EIWA 3 times running and has defeated CU 4 of last 5 in duals.   Plus CU women tend to be 30 - 40 lbs oveweight.   When does the dominance end?

I agree that it would suck to lose your spot in the lineup as a senior to a freshman but ... best team goes on the mat. I don't really know who would win the wrestle-off. I don't know if 149 is an optimal weight for Saunders. I do know that Yianni goes where he wants and if that means Saunders v Richard, that's what it means. The alternative is Yianni at 149 and there's no doubt that Richard hits the bench.

I have no desire to discuss a specific person. 

That SAT is actually average for Ivy League wrestlers? If that is the average board score for any group at an ivy, we can dispense with the notion of academics being more rigorous and demanding in the ivy league.

I don't believe that for a second.

And how does anyone know Y's scores?
