Season outlook:
The Spartans are starting a new era under first year Head Coach Duane Bastress after being led by Coach Tom Kessler for the past 21 seasons. The Spartans will look to improve from last season’s 8th place finish at the regional tournament and 18 dual meet wins. Coach Bastress will rely on national qualifiers Joey Giaccio and Chuck Glatz to help lead this year’s squad along with a solid core of returners from last year’s team. The Spartans coaching staff has brought in another solid recruiting class headlined by state qualifiers and place winners from New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia, & Pennsylvania.
