Campus Champion

Senior Aljamain Sterling of Uniondale, N.Y., goes to the mat, literally, to help his team and his College maintain a national, high-profile athletic standing. Notably, the wrestler earned All-America honors for the second straight season with his sixth-place finish in the 141-pound weight class at the NCAA Div. III Wrestling Championships March 11-12 in La Crosse, Wis. Sterling, a physical education major, finished with a 4-3 record at the national meet. He completed the season with a 28-8 record, and his 87 victories over three seasons ranks 11th all-time at Cortland. Once he steps across the graduation platform, Sterling’s past prowess prepares him to successfully conquer any new challenges in his career and life.
