Head coach: Tim Jeffries, third season

Returning lettermen: Nine

Top wrestlers: Steven Tarno (Jr.), Cameron Cox (Jr.), Trenton May (Sr.), Peter Enos (So.)

Outlook: Tarno, who probably will wrestle at 113 pounds, May (119) and Cox (195) all qualified for the Division I-A state meet last year and are among nine lettermen back for the Crusaders.

“Coming off one of the most successful seasons in Crusader wrestling history, this year’s Faith Lutheran wrestling team is poised to continue the progress that coach Jeffries has established with the program,” Jeffries said. “This year’s schedule includes five high-caliber tournaments.

“The entire staff is excited about the season and looks forward to future success on the mat and in the classroom.”
