The Romeo wrestlers have been traveling to Dearborn Heights Crestwood High School for the past few years to see different schools and face some good competition. This year was a little different since Crestwood could only host four schools based on limitations from the state. Fortunately, the Bulldogs were still able to have a couple tough matches and end the week on a high note!
Romeo faced Crestwood the first match and the Chargers came charging out of the gate winning three of the first four weight classes. Romeo won nine of the last ten weight classes for a 49-15 victory over the scrappy Chargers.
In round two the Bulldogs faced up and coming Stoney Creek. The Cougars from Stoney Creek have been getting better over the past few years. They brought a strong team and good numbers to Crestwood. The Bulldogs lost six of the first eight matches and were down 27 -12 on the scoreboard. Romeo came roaring back with six straight victories on their way to a 45-27 victory over the Cougars.
The final round was against Romulus Summit Academy. The Dragons from Romulus came in with an inexperienced team and small numbers. It gave the Bulldogs a chance to give some JV guys a taste of some varsity competition. After all was said and done, four Bulldog wrestlers earned their first varsity win and concluded the day with an 84-0 victory.
