Season outlook:
Elizabethtown looks to continue the success from last year’s team. There will be a few changes in the lineup and additions of some guys coming off of injury for the second semester. Both Bill and Julian Meaney will be back from injuries hoping to make it through the year unscathed. 2010 national qualifier Tye Boyer will be looking to return to the tournament, while Will Bentley hopes to finally break through and punch his ticket. There is a nice mixture of young talent coupled with the experience of some talented upperclassmen. The top recruit coming in is probably heavyweight Jeremy Rieth, a 4th place finisher in PA a year ago. He will likely start the year behind Meaney and get reps at the tournaments while standing ready as needed.
