Season outlook:
New coach Mike DeRoehn came over from Oshkosh last season to take over for the departed Pete Rogers, and he was able to get Isaac Roberson through to the NCAA tournament out of the tough Great Lakes Regional. Roberson is gone, but there is some talent left as DeRoehn keeps building the program. Ryan Renon is the top returner after a 4th place regional finish and 22 win season. A good group of incoming freshmen that includes a number with state level experience. Also joining up in the second semester are North Central transfer and Great Lakes placer Andrew Bradley as well as Miguel Luis, a 16 match winner from a year ago. If the young talent can gel, the Muskies will have a good season.
