Season Outlook:
The Auggies are looking to continue their NCAA Tournament momentum from the 2019 NCAA Tournament with a large group of underclassmen. Solomon Nielsen is the only returning national team member from the 2019 NCAA Championship Team. He is joined by Stauffacher and Kim who were both region place winners that year and Shilson, Rogge, & Schwanebeck-Ostermann who all reached the podium at the NWCA Nationals. The freshmen class is one of the largest and most accomplished recruiting classes in Augsburg Wrestling history and will challenge the returning starters at all 10 weight classes.
