Season outlook:
With all three NCAA qualifiers from last year graduating, Stevens Point will look to the six returning starters to led the team into 2013-2014. Upper weights Dustin Wozniak and Jordan Koranda both had big seasons with Wozniak finishing 4th in a region featuring the 1st and 4th place NCAA finishers and Koranda leading the nation in falls for most of the season before an injury ended his season at the regional. St. Cloud transfer Jared Kust should step in and make an impact right away along with a large freshman class who will gain experience behind a lineup that could have at least six junior or senior starters.
