Dr. Gross Goes To NYC, Go Say Hi

You know you wanna go....

An update on New York's College Team

While everyone is familiar with SU's basketball and lacrosse greatness, hear how Athletic Director Dr. Daryl Gross is extending this success and greatness to all Orange sports teams. SU is currently ranked 16th nationally in the Learfield Cup - http://cts.vresp.com/c/?WhitmanAlumniClubofN/9f7c796596/TEST/53a4ff5dae , a ranking of overall athletic program success.

 

Since Gross' hiring in 2004 the women's lacrosse team reached its first ever Final Four, as did the field hockey team.  Multiple teams reached their highest ever national ranking - Men's Rowing (5th), Men's Cross Country (11th) and Women's Cross Country (10th).  Under new coach Doug Marrone, the football team reached, and won, its first bowl game since 2004.  New facilities (the Carmelo Center, new fields and weight rooms) and a new women's team - ice hockey - are other examples of Gross' drive for SU success.  Off the field the Athletic Department has raised over $100 million since 2007 and last year 13 SU teams had grades and graduation rates above the national average.

 Dr. Gross will discuss

 -SU's 27 football recruits -ALL of them high school captains! 

-The outlook for spring Orange teams 

-The story behind "New York's College Team" 

-Trends and issues surrounding the Big East 

-Conference re-alignment and what it means for the Orange

 Dr. Gross' vision is to ensure that Syracuse, year in and year out, is recognized as one of the great athletics institutions in the country.  His mission for Syracuse Athletics is to compete and perform at the highest level in everything - on the playing field, in the classroom, and in the community. The principles in which he believes include winning championships, graduating all of the student-athletes, maintaining compliance to all NCAA rules, and being fiscally sound.
