Season outlook:
Scott Honecker steps up from assistant coach to head coach this season at Williams. He takes over a team with a pair of 2x NCAA Qualifiers in Tom Foote and Ces Antista. Both will challenge for championships in the new Northeast Region. A strong freshman class backs them up and helps to fill out a roster that was down as low as 11 athletes last season. After forfeiting 125 last season, the Ephs should have that spot ably filled by a pair of freshmen including Virginia 3rd place finisher Danny Seidita. Filling all ten weights will be the first step to an improved dual meet record at Williams.
