Season outlook:
Oswego returns a fairly experienced group from last season that will be bolstered by a group of 22 freshman and transfers. Cam Mills missed the postseason last year with an injury after compiling a 22-5 record at 174. He returns at 184 for his final season of competition. Omar Santiago and 133 and Joe Pesce at 285 each finished 6th in the Empire Conference and also return. 125 should be covered by AIC transfer and 3x NY state finalist Kyle Crisafulli while Scott McGregor split time at 133 with Santiago last year and will move up to 141 for 2012-2012. With some good experience back and hopefully a full season from their best wrestler, the Lakers hope to improve on last year’s record and placement in the ECWC tournament.
