The Generals enter the Centennial Conference tournament with high goals, looking for their first conference champion since 2014 when Ron Tassoni ’16 won the 174 lb weight class. W&L has had 5 conference finalists over the last two years, and is looking to break through in a big way in the home gym! The Generals will have up to 6 wrestlers seeded in the top 4: Zach Bylykbashi (141), Bryce Crew (149), Shane Conners (157), Brandon Lefore (174), Rexx Hallyburton (184), and Matt Kaminer (285). Ethan Hartman (125), Matt Muller (133), Alec Horne (165), and Zach England (197) will also look to fight for team points. It looks to be a very close team race, with Stevens Institute the heavy favorite, but W&L, Gettysburg, Johns Hopkins, and Merchant Marine all battling to close the gap and pull off the upset.
