Lower Half (106-145): Senior Costa Poniros, a District runner-up in 2013, and juniors Dave Tieto and Joey Benner return as the most experienced wrestlers in the lower half of the lineup. The junior trio of Gerrell Cox, Chris Donnelly, and Jeff Andre saw plenty of action last season and will be looking to step up in larger roles this year. Ocean will also look for strong contributions from talented freshmen Jake Benner and Adam Manzo.

Upper Half (152-Hwt): The Spartans get a huge lift with the return of 2-time State medal winner Zach Hertling returning after missing the 2nd half of last season with an injury. Hertling, along with District medal winner TJ Saldutti, will be the anchors of the upper half of the lineup that will be breaking in several new starters that suffered a big blow with an injury to junior Tyler Thompson during football season.

Outlook: Ocean is looking to bounce back from a rough 2014 where they were hounded by the injury bug all season long.  With only a few seniors, this is a relatively young team that should keep improving as the season progresses. The Spartans will look to compete with Wall and Long Branch for a run at the B-North Title, and will look to make some noise in the Sectionals, as well as the individual post-season. If the newcomers come along, Ocean should be able to reclaim its usual spot among the Shore's Top 10.
