Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Former UMD All-American wrestler Ron McClure will join seven others in entering the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Hall of Fame, it was announced on Thursday.

McClure earned NCAA Division II All-American honors in 1993 and 1994, the only Bulldog wrestler to ever earn that distinction more than once.

During his senior season in 1993-94, McClure amassed an overall record of (27-1), with his only loss coming in the 142-pound title match at the NCAA Division II Championships.

He finished his four-year career at UMD with a record of (108-17), qualifying for three NCAA Division II national tournaments and one NAIA championship event.
