The Bombers are very solid in the Lower Weights with the return of Ricardo and Alex Gomez at 125/133, while Captain Dom Giacolone will make the move from 125 to 141 this season. The Middle Weights should again be very tough with the return of 2 All-Americans Derek Brenon 157lbs and Jules Doliscar 174lbs. The Bombers look to make their biggest improvements in the upper weights this season with the addition of two Freshmen at 184 lbs. and returning from injuries with Shane Bartrum 197lbs and Cris Ramirez Hwt.
