Bulldogs travel to Imlay City

The Romeo Wrestling team was at Imlay City High School on Saturday, February 28 for a rare afternoon start.  This season has seen a shortage of referees so many have had to pull double duty on Saturdays.  Thus, a ref will officiate a morning quad and then travel to another high school to officiate an afternoon quad.  In attendance for the afternoon were: Flint Kearsley, Imlay City, Lamphere, and Romeo. 

The Bulldogs had Kearsley for the first round.  The Hornets were missing a number of wrestlers, but, the ones they had were pretty good.  Romeo took round one 66-15.  

Next up were the Spartans from Imlay City.  Imlay City always has a competitive team and this year was no different.  The Bulldogs wrestled tough as nails and pulled off a few big wins over some tough individuals.  The end result was Romeo 57  Imlay City  18.

In the final match of the evening Romeo had the Lamphere Rams.  Lamphere and Romeo were both 2-0 on the day coming into the last round.  Again, the Bulldogs won some big individual match-ups on their way to a 57-18 victory.

It was a great day that saw 12 freshman or sophomores see varsity action.  The goal for the day was to try things we have been working on in practice and the day was a nice step in the right direction.  There was some real improvement even from the previous Wednesday.  The Bulldogs are now 13-1 overall.
