    Season outlook:

    After a few years of sending a lot of qualifiers to the tournament but coming back empty-handed, the Merchant Marine Academy broke through in 2010 with an 8th place finish from Jordan Alfaro and the first NCAA Champion in conference history in unseeded 165 lb. Vincent Renaut. Both are back, along with a pair of other qualifiers in Dan Twito and James Beshada. Four years ago, the Mariners had an outstanding recruiting class that has yielded four NCAA qualifiers, two of whom became All-Americans last year. This group is now seniors and looking to have one last great year together to move the team higher in the NCAA standings and maintain their hold on the Centennial Conference championship.
