Cortland HOF

Former Walton wrestling coach Rick Armstrong will be inducted into the SUNY Cortland C-Club Hall of Fame on Oct. 20.

Armstrong, who graduated from Cortland in 1979, became the wrestling program’s first national champion when he won the NCAA Division III title at 158 pounds as a junior in 1978.

A three-time SUNYAC champion (1977-79), Armstrong also earned All-America honors in 1979 with a fourth-place finish and in 1976 by placing sixth. The two-time all-stater (1976, 1977) went 88-21-4 for the Red Dragons.

Binghamton resident Armstrong also went 33-0 for Whitney Point High in 1974, when he won the school’s first state wrestling crown.

Armstrong went on to coach wrestling at Walton from 1982-2011. He was inducted into the New York State Collegiate Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2005 and the NCAA D-III Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2009.

Armstrong will join John LaBombard (Class of 1963), Tony Seaman (1965), Ann Dunwoody (1975), Paul Alexander (1982), Tracey Armstead (1986) and honorary inductee Fran Elia (Cortland’s sports information director since 1992) in Cortland’s Class of 2012.
