MARK GUMBLE
Inducted 1996



A native of Endwell, NY, Mark Gumble wrestled at Binghamton from 1985-88. He earned his bachelor's degree in literature/rhetoric in 1988 and went on to receive his master's in social science from Binghamton in 1993. He was named BU's head wrestling coach in 1988.
One of the school's three national champions, Gumble won more career matches than any other Binghamton wrestler, compiling a 112-18-2 record in four years.
He was a national runner-up at 142 pounds in 1986 after posting an undefeated dual season (10-0). One year later, Gumble repeated as an All-American with a third-place national finish. He won a school-record 37 matches and was named the Most Outstanding Wrestler at the New York State Championships after winning a title. In his senior season in 1987, Gumble posted another undefeated dual season (10-0-1), won a third-straight SUNYAC championship, and closed out his career as a 150-pound national champion. At the NCAA Championships, he pinned his opponent in both the semifinals and final, becoming a three-time All-American in the process.
Back home, the three-time team captain was named BU's "Athlete of the Year" a record three straight years, and also was honored as the 1988 Jake Pitler Award recipient.
