The men's squad brings Henry Harper, Chris Korabik, John Korte, Charlie McIntyre, and returns Deck, Pecorin, and Ryan to the NCAA Midwest Regional. Seniors Korabik, Pecorin, and Ryan will continue to lead the Blue Demons. "That group of seniors has been pretty steady over the course of the season, comments Coach Derrick Peterson. "Chris helps lead our men's team and Jake stepping up and being a major contributor on the men's side has been tremendous throughout the season. James has made major improvements and has been major for our men's team."
