Wrestling Announces Class of 2017

LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall head wrestling coach Mike Rogers has announced the Diplomats' latest recruiting class. The six-person class features five grapplers from Pennsylvania and one from New York. 

"We're excited about our incoming group of six freshmen," said Rogers. "All of these wrestlers come to F&M as accomplished student-athletes in their own right, and they all have the ability to make an immediate impact on the program. I'm looking forward to an exciting season watching them develop."

The Class of 2017 joins a group of 17 returners this winter. The Diplomats lost just one senior to graduation last year.
