Cooperman, Hahn named assistant coaches at Cornell



ITHACA, N.Y. - Cornell University coach Rob Koll has announced that Cory Cooperman, a three-time All-American and three-time EIWA champion for Lehigh, has been named assistant coach of the Big Red wrestling team. Koll has also announced that Damion Hahn, a two-time NCAA champion at Minnesota, has been named the volunteer assistant coach. The Big Red is coming off a fifth-place finish in last year's NCAA tournament.

Cooperman compiled a 99-12 record for the Mountain Hawks, including a 65-7 mark in dual meets. He is 12th on Lehigh's all-time wins list and has the fifth-most dual victories in school history. Last season, Cooperman went 28-2, losing only to Oklahoma's Teyon Ware. He took titles at the Southern Scuffle and the EIWA tournament and finished third at the NCAA championships. It was his second-consecutive third-place finish and he took seventh in 2004 for his first All-America honor. He wrestled at both 133 and 141 during his career.

Cooperman was a psychology major at Lehigh.

Hahn, who wrapped up his Golden Gopher career in 2004 12th all-time and currently ranks 13th in career victories at Minnesota with a 118-21-0 record over his career, including a 33-1 mark during his senior season in 2003-04. Hahn became the third wrestler in school history to capture two NCAA Championships when he won back-to-back crowns in 2003 and 04. He became just the fourth four-time All-American, as well as the fifth three-time Big Ten Champion in school history. He was awarded the 2004 Jesse Owens Male Athlete of the Year Award, which is awarded to the top male athlete in the Big Ten Conference.

Hahn earned a B.A. in an inter-college program relating to education/youth studies and rhetoric.
