Two All-Americans return at 125 in Mike Tortorice (2nd) and Peter Del Gallo (3rd). Tortorice came out of the #2 seed to make the finals where he fell to Jay Alibs of Johnson & Wales. Del Gallo lost in the quarterfinals and fought back to 3rd. Each has only lost to one opponent this season, though Carlos Champagne, who defeated Tortorice in a tiebreaker, did not qualify. Del Gallo has two losses to Nick Arborio of Western New England with one loss happening in the regional final.

Samuel Braswell, Matt Caccamise, and Sawyer Sarbacker were in this bracket last season. Caccamise eliminated both Sarbacker and Braswell before bowing out in the round of 12. This year, Braswell dealt Caccamise his only DIII loss in the York finals. Sarbacker has seen limited action this year, but managed to get through with a 3rd place finish in the Upper Midwest.

Robbie Precin of North Central and Dan Ortego of TCNJ each have a single loss on the year. Precin dropped a 3-2 match to Tortorice in November but has otherwise been unscathed. Ortega is coming off his only loss of the year in the regional final in a 7-5 loss to Caccamise that wasn’t decided until the second sudden victory period. Andrew Perelka won the Central region and has a win over Redington along with wins in his region.

Sean Redington of Messiah and Nathaneal Rankin qualified in 2018 but did not qualify last season.
