Season Outlook:
Only two seniors graduated from last year’s Gettysburg team that placed third in the Centennial Conference and returns five regional placewinners. Junior Paul Triandafilou leads the way as a 2x NCAA Qualifier and 2016 All-American who seeks his first regional championship and a return to the NCAA podium in 2018. Four other past regional placewinners are back from last season as well. As many as five seniors could be in the lineup for an experienced Bullets team that will score well in tournaments. A 16 man freshman class is one of the best in the last decade and features numerous state qualifiers and placewinners who will be finding their way into the lineup as the season progresses.
