Season outlook:
Last year, Williams relied on a young team bolstered by a pair of senior national qualifiers, including All-American Ces Antista. With only 1 senior and 2 juniors, the 2013-2014 Ephs team will do more of the same but with a solid sophomore class. All-American Jorge Lopez returns as their only regional placewinner but will move up to 157 seeking an encore of last year’s 6th place national finish. Classmate Tim Garripoli will switch weights with Lopez and head down to 149. The incoming class has a couple of highlights in New England champion Chris Chorzepa and PA AAA placewinner Martin Strenk. Both hope to be able to contribute right away. As with any young team, the success of this group will depend on how the sophomores on the team adjust to their second full year of NCAA competition.
