Season outlook:
John Carroll could potentially return ten former starters into an experienced lineup. Of these, John Cobos and Greg Ryan were both one step away from the NCAA tournament, finishing 2nd in the OAC behind wrestlers from Mount Union. six other possible Blue Streak starters have been conference placewinners in their careers, giving the team a balanced look that should be competitive in every dual meet thanks to its experience. A good group of incoming wrestlers including a lot of state qualifiers and placewinners will bolster the lineup and perhaps challenge to start. The OAC has been improving, so John Carroll will have to keep improving right along with it as Coach Volkmann enters his 26th year at the helm.
