Green concluded last season with a 33-8 record. That mark was good enough for Green to tie for the third-highest win total in a season in school-history. The senior placed first at both the Mid-States Tournament and Trine University Invitational. A 5-2 performance in the National Championships capped off his junior season with All-America honors.

Defending-National Champion James Buss of Loras College, and reigning third-place finisher Zach Roseberry of Delaware Valley are the only two wrestlers ranked ahead of Green.

Preston battled through injuries and was still able to earn a National Championship berth last season, as he concluded the year with a 25-15 record. Included in that record were five wins by pin, two by tech fall and five by major decision. Preston has appeared in the National Championships at both the 125-lb and 133-lb weight classes.

Also included among last season's highlights for Preston was a first-place finish in the Ohio Northern Invitational, and a second-place finish at the Mid-States Tournament.

Trine opens the season Saturday, Nov. 8 at Muskegon (Mich.) Community College's Ben McMullen Open. The Thunder will host the Trine Invitational Saturday, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m.
