Although the women's hockey team fell to nationally ranked Boston College in Lynah Rink Oct. 24, volunteers for the Cornell United Way campaign felt like winners.

About $1,700 was raised through raffles, donations and a portion of the tickets purchased.

Seventeen student groups wearing their club or organization's colors at the game vied to receive the inaugural "Cornell and Community Spirit" trophy for having the greatest number of game attendees. Ithaca Acting Mayor Deborah Mohlenhoff presented the award to the Cornell women’s basketball team.
