Coach Kevin Dresser talks about Hokies outlook for 2016-17.

Virginia Tech finished fourth at the NCAA wrestling championships last spring, the best in program history. Can it get even closer to a championship? Coach Kevin Dresser went over where the Hokies stand.

Sure, there are parts missing from last season's run, most notably Nick Brascetta, who finished third at the NCAAs at 157 pounds. Bascetta also became the second three-time all-American in school history last season.

But there are plenty of bright spots returning, including junior Zach Epperly at 174 pounds. He also finished third at the NCAAs last season. Joey Dance returns at 125 pounds, Solomon Chisko at 149 pounds, Zach Zavatsky at 184 pounds and Jared Haught at 197 pounds. All are ranked in the top 10 in their weight class nationally according to InterMat Wrestle.
