Wrestlers Avenge Lost – Win Team Regional
On Wednesday, February 15 the #6 ranked Romeo Bulldogs met the #4 ranked Dakota Cougars in the first round of the Team Regional in what ended up being the match of the evening. Dakota had beaten Romeo 44-19 the first time they met, but, the Bulldogs came in with a full line-up and a different attitude!
Romeo spotted Dakota an early 21-9 lead after 6 matches before the Bulldogs ran off 5 straight wins. It was 31 – 24 Romeo going into the last two matches before Romeo got a tech fall to put the dual meet out of reach.
The Bulldogs had Rochester Adams in the finals after they beat Troy High School. It was all Romeo in the finals!
The Bulldogs won their 7th Team Regional Championship overall and the first since 2011. Romeo advances to the state quarterfinals in Kalamazoo on Friday, February 24.
