NCAA champ and college coach Duane Goldman takes his place in the Colorado Springs Sports Hall



Duane Goldman's induction into the Colorado Springs Sports Hall of Fame on October 30 recognizes a lifetime of excellence within wrestling.

One of the best high school wrestlers in Colorado history, Duane Goldman won two state championships at Cheyenne Mountain High in 1979 and 1981, compiling an 85-2 record over three varsity seasons. He joined the powerful NCAA program at the University of Iowa in 1982 and won four straight Big Ten titles, recorded three NCAA second-place finishes, and won the 1986 NCAA championship at 190 pounds for the Hawkeyes, who also won four NCAA team crowns under the legendary head coach Dan Gable.

His senior campaign at Iowa included a 36-0 record, and his combined prep and collegiate record was 217-12. Goldman won a gold medal at the 1987 Pan American Championships in Colorado Springs.

He has been the head coach at Indiana University for twenty seasons, taking his Hoosier teams to the NCAA Championships in each season. His teams have posted a 253-135-5 mark in dual meets.

His IU wrestlers have won three NCAA individual titles, earned 25 All-American honors, and recorded significant academic achievement. He’s been inducted into the Iowa Wrestling Hall of Fame and the University of Iowa Athletic Hall of Fame.

Goldman will join Olympic figure skater and famed coach Christy Krall, International and Olympic sports leader George Killian, CU two-time All-American punter Barry Helton, who also owns two Super Bowl Championship rings with the 49ers, longtime Air Force mat coach and Olympian Wayne Baughman, and the 1986-2012 Cheyenne Mountain High Girls state championship tennis teams in the Class of 2012.
