2017 Season Preview

Head Coach: Neil Saunders (3rd Season / 17-22)

2016 Record: 8-10
5th Place District 24
4th Place B-South
2nd Place Buc Classic
3rd Place Holmdel Holiday Tournament
11th Place Colt Classic

A little bit of everything here: The established big gun, solid returners, returning starters looking to take the next step, and new faces looking to make impacts.

We start up top where Wildcat hammer Christopher Nielsen returns after a huge 2016 that saw him win the D24 title, finish 2nd in the Region, and record 31 wins. He anchors the upperweights, but will have some help from senior Kelly Lutz. Lutz, a 3rd place finisher in the District last year, could be due for a very big 2017 as rolling with Nielsen in the wrestling room every day is only going to make him tougher. Underclassmen Evan Burton and Maski Avery are expected to crack the lineup up top, but the Cats get a boost with the return of Rob Hart at 215 who missed last season after starting as a sophomore. Keep an eye on Jacob Menia here. He wrestled up at 182/195 as a sophomore last year, but could have a very nice year down at 160.

The lower half of the lineup has potential to be pretty good for the Wildcats. There will be a few new faces in the lineup, but head coach Neil Saunders has returning starters, Riley Stephenson, an 18-bout winner last year, 17-match winner Brennan Richardson, and fellow returning lettermen Danny Diaz, Sam Cardillo, and Sean O'Rourke to break in the newcomers around.

You have to go back to 2010 for the last winning season down in Tuckerton, but the potential is here for the Cats to end that streak. They have some proven vets that are looking for even bigger years, and if the new starters hold their own, this team will get their share of wins. Individually, we already know the potential Nielsen has, but guys like Stephenson, Richardson, Lutz, Mena, and Hart bear watching too. Could be a very interesting team if they stay healthy.
