The 2017 season for Cornell proved to be impressive and historic for the Big Red. The team came in second during the ECAC championships after claiming the title in 2016 and claimed its second straight Ivy Classic title—the 12th in program history. The Big Red broke records at USAG nationals with program high scores on floor, beam and with its team score with a 194.950. The team placed fourth at the championships as sophomore Kaitlin Green became the seventh Cornell gymnast to win a USAG national title. Junior Lyanda Dudley holds the school all around record with a 39.225, and Dudley and Green were chosen to compete at NCAA regionals, marking the first time two Cornell gymnasts have competed at a regionals the same year since 1998. Dudley earned co-ECAC Gymnast of the Year honors while assistant coach Melanie Dilliplane was awarded Assistant Coach of the Year. Former successful gymnasts include Melanie Jorgensen, Emily Santoro, Stacey Ohara and Shannon Weiman.
