Wabash Preview

A good mix of upperclassmen and new wrestlers will take the mat for Wabash this season.  A quartet of regional placewinners are back and will be joined by three state placers and four other qualifiers.  The returning placewinners from the regional last year are all juniors and seniors, and will put their experience to work on improving their individual placements as well as that of the team.  Rob Arnett led the way with 34 victories between 197 and 285, while Jared Tribbett, Stephen Mosier, and Michael Burke each topped 20 for the year.  They are set with a tough schedule including the Pete Willson Invitational, Ohio Northern Invitational, and they host the Little State Tournament.
