Season outlook:
WPI had gone through a rebuilding phase where dual meet wins were somewhat hard to come by. That looks be changing, as the team returns four NEWA placewinners and looks to have brought in a talented class that should help the team compete as they mature into college wrestlers. All of the returning conference placewinners are sophomores or juniors, so the Engineers are looking good for the next two seasons at least with that group. A pair of New England area state champs head the incoming class in Chris Schramm and Tanner Burke and are joined by PA qualifier Justin Marsh. With some stability in the coaching staff and a solid foundation on which to build, WPI looks to be headed int he right direction.
