Jenny Graap returned to her alma mater in 1997 with one goal in mind: to build the Cornell women’s lacrosse team into a championship contender. Now entering her 20th year at the helm in 2016-17, Graap has been honored as the the 2002 Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Coach of the Year, the 2006 Inside Lacrosse Magazine Northeast Coach of the Year, and a three-time IWLCA Northeast Coach of the Year (2002, 2006, 2016), while developing the Big Red women’s lacrosse program into one of the most successful in the nation.
Graap has built an Ivy League and national title contender in her first 19 years. She has posted a 180-120 record at Cornell and a 201-164 mark in 22 years as a head coach. She reached her 200th career win in dramatic fashion, defeating Penn, 11-10, on May 8, 2016, to win the Big Red's first-ever Ivy League Tournament Championship and earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
In her tenure at Cornell, Graap has had 85 All-Ivy selections, 49 IWLCA All-Region selections, 17 IWLCA national All-Americans, three CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, three Ivy League Players of the Year and one national player of the year finalist. Her teams have reached postseason play nine times since she returned to Cornell and have won at least 10 games eight times as well.
The Big Red had one of the best seasons in program history in 2016, beginning the season 8-0, marking the best start in program history. Led by a balanced offense, with six players finishing with 30+ points, and a nationally elite defense, Cornell was an underdog team that fought its way into the national conversation. Ranking as high as No. 13 in the IWLCA Coaches Poll, the Big Red posted its second-most wins in program history, finishing the year 14-5. Cornell battled to a 5-2 Ivy League record, its best conference mark since 2012, earning a No. 3 seed in the 2016 Ivy League Tournament. But the Big Red emerged on top, defeating second-seeded Princeton, 10-9, in overtime for the program's first Ivy League Tournament win before taking down host Penn, 11-10, to hoist the championship trophy for the first time. After earning an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament with the win and making its first Tournament appearance since 2006, the Big Red was once again rewarded, snagging the Tournament's No. 8 seed and earning the right to host First and Second Round games for the first time since 2002. The Big Red downed a hot Canisius team, 15-11, in the first round before suffering a heartbreaking 7-6 loss to Massachusetts in the second round to end the storybook season. In addition to the team's historic success, a number of individuals on the 2016 squad etched their names into the record books. Co-captain Emily Tripodi '16 set a new school record in career assists, finishing with 116, and Catie Smith '17 set a new single-season standard in caused turnovers with 41. Tripodi earned Second-Team All-Ivy, along with goalkeeper Renee Poulllott '17 and Taylor Reed '18, while Smith and Joey Coffy '18 were named to the First-Team. Smith and Coffy were both also IWLCA Regional All-Americans, while Poullott earned second-team honors. Smith concluded her stellar season as an IWLCA Third-Team All-American.

She received her first coaching experience as the head lacrosse mentor at the Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child in Summit, N.J., in 1989.
