Season outlook:
A pair of NEWA placewinners will help lead the Engineers in head coach Steve Hall’s 2nd season at the helm. Additionally, Brian Jennings put up 17 wins last year in his first season at 125. With a smaller roster, the incoming wrestlers will have a chance to shine, and there is a pair of high school New England placewinners that figure to challenge for spots in the starting lineup. Other freshmen could step in and give the WPI lineup a very youthful look that bodes well for the future of the program.
