After recording the program’s first winning dual match season since 2003, McDaniel College continues to add pieces to the puzzle in hopes of returning to the top of the Centennial Conference.  Senior All-American heavyweight Brock Glotfelty looks for his third Centennial title and has his eyes set for a run at an individual National title in March.  Some shifting of weight classes and a talented group of newcomers should prove beneficial to McDaniel over the course of the season.  Head Coach Davey Blake enters his fourth season at his alma mater, and each year has been an improvement over the last.  This season, the Green Terror hope to have multiple national qualifiers for the first time during Blake’s tenure as a couple of Centennial runners-up in the lightweights join three time conference finalist Glotfelty.
