Roger Williams has brought in 26 freshman to go along with 26 returning athletes, making theirs one of the largest rosters in Division III. Seven starters return from a year ago, as do two others who were injured last year and started in 05-06. The loss of All-American Andy Lacroix will hurt, but they are hopeful that 2006 national qualifier Ant Nicolicchia can return from injury suffered at the end of last year. All ten probable starters have won at least 20 matches once in their career, while the group of newcomers has potential to be the best class RWU has had and will make things interesting as they look to improve upon 4th place finish in the NEWA and defend their New England Dual Meet.
