The Harvard wrestling team had a great end to the 2010 season last March crowning the program's third national champion at the NCAA Championships in Omaha. The Crimson welcome back a talented group of wrestlers who garnered a lot of experience on the mat last season and a few grapplers who return to Cambridge after taking time off to pursue other endeavors. This combination will look to bring back accolades from the EIWA and NCAA Championships this coming March.

Senior Andrew Knapp and sophomore Walter Peppelman will serve as the captains for the 2010-11 season, but as Jay Weiss, the David G. Bunning Head Coach for Harvard Wrestling, explains in his season preview, the squad boasts a group of leaders that all push each other to be better wrestlers, better students and better human beings.
