Season outlook:
As Rich Hasenfus enters his second season coaching Williams, he will be doing it without two of the winningest wrestlers in school history as All-American Corey Paulish and 3x All-American Ryan Malo have graduated and moved on. However, the other two NCAA qualifiers from last year are back in Ces Antista and Tom Foote. Other top starters back include NEWA 3rd place finisher Mike Lomio at 184 and 17 match winner Kaison Tanabe. Nikola Mirkovic will move down from 285 with the departure of Malo as the Ephs look to repeat and improve upon their 2nd place NEWA finish from last year. It will be tough to replace Paulish, Malo, and All-New England Josh Mattana, and the team will be counting on some incoming freshmen to step in and contribute right away.
