Season Outlook:
Heading into the 2016-2017 season, the Muhlenberg College wrestling program continues to rise under the leadership of 3rd year coach Shaun Lally. The ascension of the program comes on the heels of a young and hungry roster with zero seniors. Departed seniors and leaders Che Chengsupanamit and Jimmy Coiley will force the young Mules to step up and fill the void. Muhlenberg’s schedule includes a return trip to Madison Square Garden for the Grapple at the Garden, a flight to the Citrus Open in Fort Lauderdale Florida, and a full slate of Centennial Conference matches and more. The Mules will also be breaking in a new and expanded wrestling facility for the 2016-2017 season. Upper-classmen Mark Gutierrez, Jake Gordon, and Ben Peck will look to make their mark on the Division III landscape and a slew of young wrestlers will also be working to break through as well. Returning assistant coach Andrew Drake and newly added assistant coach Nick Sanko will both contribute to the ascension of the wrestling program and the energy that surrounds it. Look for the Mules to make some noise in Division III this year as coach Lally and the staff will have the young Mules ready for competition.
