The Comets return a large portion of their lineup from the 2019 MIAA Championship team, including a pair of National Qualifiers in Haydn Kinjorski and Trevor Piggott.  They'll add fifteen new faces this fall.  2x state champ Owen Guilford and Trevor Robinson, who placed in the top three all four years, are the biggest pickups; both were top-35 seniors in the Class of '19.   Some other notable incoming freshmen include Kyle Schaaf,  a four-time all-stater, and Jerry Hall, a three-time top-six finisher.   

Lincoln Olson will be available second semester and has two seasons left to compete, which is a massive boost to the lineup.  The former Davison four-time state champ has spent time at both Oklahoma State and CMU thus far in his career.  Arthur Payne is another big transfer, coming from Mott CC where he won a NWCA title in 2018.  He began his career at the D1 level at North Dakota State.
