Former Honesdale star Josh Arnone is continuing his collegiate wrestling career this winter at Cornell. Arnone...who set all-time records for wins at the school, league and district levels...has battled injuries the past few years. Josh is now a senior and competing at 285 lbs.


After two frustrating years spent battling health issues, Josh Arnone is back on the wrestling mat.

The former Honesdale High School star...who set all-time records for his school, the Lackawanna League and District Two...is looking to close out his college grappling career at Cornell University this winter.

Arnone is now a fifth year senior at the Ithaca (NY)?school. Josh was forced to take a medical redshirt early in his career, so he’s never managed to put up the mind-boggling numbers he compiled at HHS.

Nevertheless, Arnone is still a valuable member of the Cornell squad and has worked his way back into the starting line-up for the 2009-‘10 season.

Josh’s career mark to date at Cornell is 28-10 (.737 winning percentage) with five falls.

Arnone opened his senior season with a heartbreaking loss against Maryland.

Josh led his bout at 285 by a score of 3-1 after one period. Unfortunately for Big Red fans, the Terps’ Patrick Gilmore rallied to tie the bout and force overtime. Just 10 seconds into the extra session, Gilmore tallied a takedown to earn the win.
