Season Outlook:
Graduating three All-Americans and five national qualifiers creates a fresh look for the 2015-16 Delaware Valley University wrestling team. However, with the familiar face of two-time All-American junior Zach Roseberry and the strong freshmen and transfer class that has come on board, the Aggies are excited about this year. Add a seasoned group of upperclassmen returning to DelVal’s lineup, and the team expects to be right back into the thick of the national competition.
