Season Outlook:
With as many as nine starter left, John Carroll is poised for improvement in 2013-2014. Both of their NCAA qualifiers, Dan Mirman and Terner Gott, return with their eyes set on making the podium this March. Both were regional finalists at 149 and 157, respectively, with Gott taking the 157 title to become a 2x qualifier. John Carroll’s third regional placewinner was Will Porter at 285. The team will be counting on the rest of the lineup to build on last year’s experience to improve individual and team records this season. Gott and Mirman are the headliners, and a strong group of Ohio state qualifiers joins the team to challenge the incumbents for time in the lineup.
