Washington and Jefferson continues on its upward trajectory after a winning season in 2008-2009.  A very young team, W&J brings back 20 match winners Zach Cecchetti, Brandon Sansom, and Dominick Demor along with Midwest Region placewinner Taylor Potts.  Head Coach Jay Robison heads into his fourth season with a solid base of talent on which to build.  This year’s recruiting class features multiple state qualifiers along with Maryland state champ Robbie Mies who could be one of a few freshmen stepping into the lineup right away.  They start the season at the Clarion open and hope to have their second consecutive winning season.
