SUNY Cortland Making Playoff Push
I always like to promote my alma mater, SUNY Cortland, which also happens to be a Division III sports powerhouse. It's spring NCAA playoff time and that means Cortland, once again, is showing a strong presence. - The Cortland baseball team is the #1 seed in their 8-team regional that kicks off Wednesday. - Also on Wednesday is the Cortland men's lacrosse team's third-round playoff game against Middlebury. Two years ago, Cortland won the NCAA title and last year finished second. - Finally, the Cortland softball team is heading to the Division III World Series, which begins this Friday.

Cortland's Sports Information Director Fran Elia, whom I worked closely with during my time covering Cortland sports, is one of the best out there.
