DIII Team Preview – Coe College

ryan harrington

Coe College returns two All-Americans, senior Jan Rosenberg at 125 and junior Ryan Harrington at 174 pounds. Rosenberg earned All-American honors for the first time and finished the season 23-13, and he’ll enter his senior season with a 53-47 career record. Harrington is a two-time All-American finishing third in 2016 with a 29-4 record and boasts a 49-10 career record.

Coe’s lineup will see a lot of weight changes from the previous season, guys moving both up and down trying to break the line-up. Major weight classes yet to be determined will be 133, 141, and 184 where a lot of our upperclassman will be battling for the starting spot. Coe bolsters a great incoming freshman class and many will challenge the upperclassman for the starting spots. The Kohawks will also welcome back junior Brennan Koerperich at 285 pounds, a Western Dubuque High School graduate.  Koerperich is returning to the mat after playing football his freshman year at Coe and taking his sophomore year off. Koerperich will be looking to step into the heavyweight spot against sophomore Dylan VanDusen, a West Liberty High School graduate, who is coming back from a season ending injury last year.
