Bulldogs Make the State Semifinals!
On Friday, February 24 and Saturday, February 25 the Romeo wrestlers competed in the team state quarterfinals and semifinals. In the quarterfinals the Bulldogs faced the two-time defending state champions Davison Cardinals. Romeo came into the match as the underdogs, but, wrestled with composure, heart, grit, and pride. At the end of the match Romeo became the first team in school history to reach the state semifinals!
In the semifinals Romeo had Catholic Central the #1 seed. The Bulldogs gave everything they had, but, CC turned out to be a little too much. Romeo ended up losing to the eventual champions, but, they can certainly hold their heads high. They represented their team, school, and community very well.
A special thanks to all the parents, fans, and alumni who came to support the team. It was great seeing everyone cheering and supporting our team. We have a great group of parents who helped with rides and supervision. It was much appreciated!!
The whole weekend was a great experience from the Friday morning workout at Three Rivers High School, to the walking in the parade on Friday and Saturday, to team dinner on Friday night, to competing with the best of the best!
