Outlook: "We lost a core group of seniors last year, but have some talented freshman coming in and are looking to keep building the team and send as many as possible to regionals and states," Warriors head coach Joshua Foy said.

Outlook: "With the strength of schedule being what it is, the key to me may be durability," Patriots head coach Keith Watson said. "We wrestle seven of the top 25 teams in the U.S. one way or another. If we stay healthy and last year's back-up varsity wrestlers continue to improve, this could be John Carroll's best team ever."

2012-13 record: N/A
Top returning wrestlers: Tariq Moore, Sr.; Keddrick Johnson, Sr.; Coty Piechock, Sr.; Nick Burton, Sr.

Outlook: "Well it's finally here, another year of Joppatowne wrestling and we are ready to go," Mariners head coach Kelly Bryant said. "This year is full of fresh faces we have three new captains this year who are all seniors."
Head coach: Gerald Christian (seventh year)
2012-13 record: 8-6
Top returning wrestlers: Trevor Smith, Jr., (138)
Key newcomers: Austin Mitchell, Fr., (120)
Outlook: Hawks head coach Gerald Christian says his team is gearing up to win the UCBAC's Susquehanna (lower) Division.
Head coach: Ryan Arist (14th year)
2012-13 record: 27-9
Top returning wrestlers: Eric Eckstein, Sr., (220); Jake Nikkila, Jr., (132); Chase Tallon, Sr., (126); Connor Allmon, So., (120)
Key newcomers: Collin McDonald, So., (113); Brian Whitby, Sr., (285); Juan Bustamante, So., (152); Lawrence Swartz, Sr.,(145); Josh Holbrock, Sr., (160); Brent Iwanowski, Jr., (120/126)
Outlook: The Huskies have a small core group of returners with solid experience who will anchor the team, highlighted by Eckstein and Nikkila, who are both returning state qualifiers. "The test will be if the new kids with only JV experience can step up and compete at the next level to give our team success," Huskies head coach Ryan Arist said. Heavyweight Mark Reuter (28-9 last year) is out for most of the season with a football injury, so Arist is looking for senior Brian Whitby to fill those shoes. Transfer Collin McDonald will add depth to the lower weights coming off a solid ninth grade year.
