2014 Preview

Lower Half (106-145):
Long Branch returns a TON of experience in the lower half, including four Region qualifiers from a year ago.  There is a wealth of depth here as well, giving the Wave a huge advantage against teams thin in the lowerweights and giving them the option to exploit weaknesses with the ability to shuffle the lineup around.  Menkin, a senior, is a 4-year starter.  He has picked up some big individual wins, and has had some near misses against State-caliber wrestlers, throughout his career, and could be poised to
have a monster year for the Wave.

Upper Half (152-Hwt): The bad news for LB is that they were hammered by graduation in the upperweights.  The good news is that throughout his career, very few coaches have been as adept at developing upperweight wrestlers like head coach Danny George.  So while replacing the 169 losses from 2013 provided by J. George, Roselli, Guidetti, Augustin, and the Pappaylious is an unenviable task,  the Wave have the right coach in place to make the transition a lot smoother than it would be at other schools.

Outlook:  While the graduation losses will hurt, especially early on, Long Branch has always been a consistent program at restocking their lineup.  If that trend continues, the Wave will continue to be a presence in the Top 10 in the Shore, and will contend with Ocean & Wall for the division crown.  The Sectional path got much tougher with the addition of Wall joining perennial contenders Raritan and Del Val, but if the new additions come along as expected, the Wave can be a sleeper there as well.
