Heidelberg took six to the NCAA championships last year, and three of those return for 2009-2010.  Two time qualifier Zach Mizer leads the way and is joined by OAC champs Tony Lawler and Matt Curley.  Two other OAC placewinners are back as part of the seven returning starters.  Heidelberg always brings impressive depth to the table and should be able to fill in as needed for the three starters lost.  A large roster of mostly Ohio wrestlers makes the team strong and has them poised to win their 5th straight OAC championship.  2009 was the first year since 2005 that Heidelberg missed out on an All-American, and head coach Jason Miller hopes to get a new streak going in 2010.
