The Bombers look to improve in on their 16-5 Dual meet record from last season. With the return of 3 AA’s and two other National Qualifiers the Bombers should be very solid again from top to bottom. With a great mix of experience and talented incoming athletes another top 5 finish at the National Duals and the NCAA tournament are within reach.
