Season Outlook:
The goal is the same for the Hawks but in a different city – make a splash on the National scene and bring some hardware back from Cedar Rapids in March. The Hawks look to have a banner year as Tyler Gazaway and Taylor Shay return as NCAA Qualifiers as well Region Placers – Kyle Kaiser, Chris Fuschetto, Jack Kelly and Brett Leonard.

A number of notable returners look to make their name heard on the scene – 20 match winners Luke Bokina, Seth Frohnheiser, Ryan Grebe and Andy Lombard. There have also been some strong additions to the roster and many look to make a splash in the starting lineup.

The schedule is set for the Hawks as they travel to Louisville, Kentucky for the National Duals and Pennsylvania a number of times for the Monarch Invitational (Kings College) and the New Standard Invitational (York). Coach Egan looks to win his 150th dual win as well.
