CCS names six athletes, two teams to HOF

Induction will be held on Sept. 28

(Continued)

Murphy, a 1994 graduate, was the second Cooperstown wrestler to make the state tournament. He went 34-1 his senior year, winning Section Three and losing in the state finals to three-time champ John Lang. His career record was 121-20.

Senchyshyn, a 2000 graduate, played basketball and excelled in track. He was the 2000 Daily Star Track Athlete of the Year, when he won the state C-D title in the 400-meters. He also won the Center State Conference title in the 200-meters. He is still the CCS record holder in the 100-, 200- and 400-meters and also in the 400- meter relay with Ryan Brennan, Matt Peters and Bob Piel.

The field hockey team, which also included current CCS coach Cheryl McArdle Rock, went 13-0-1 and won a Section Three Class C-D title.

The basketball team, coached by current coach Dave Bertram, finished second in the state. The team’s only loss came in the state finals, as it finished 26-1, and won the Center State Conference, Section Three and regional titles.

It will be the district’s fifth induction and the first time that the ceremonies are not  honor athletes from a specific time period. The last induction, in 2011, was to honor players and teams from the 1990s.

There will also be a CCS HOF golf tournament on July 12 at Meadow Links in Richfield Springs. More details on both events will be released in the future.
