Varsity Wrestlers compete at Catholic Central

Saturday, January 4, 2020

The Catholic Central Invitational is billed as the “toughest individual tournament in Michigan.”  The 2020 version of the tournament certainly lived up to its’ billing. This years’ field featured over 100 ranked wrestlers from four Top-50 nationally ranked programs!  In most weight classes this tournament is tougher than the state tournament because we have teams from all divisions and a highly ranked team from Ohio. Romeo entered 12 wrestlers to compete. The Bulldogs got off to a rough start winning only 3 first round matches, but, the team wrestled better throughout the day.  At this point of the season, it is about gaining experience to get ready for the end of the season. Our goal for the day was very simple: wrestle with heart and pride. Overall we learned a lot about ourselves and showed the ability to bounce back after a tough loss and still compete with heart and pride. It was a long day, but, it was a good day!

Romeo ended up in 15th place out of 22 teams with 58 points. 

Here are the results for the TOP FIVE TEAMS:

1.  Detroit Catholic Central – 284
2.  Davison – 225
3.  Brighton – 195
4.  Lowell – 155
5.  La Salle (Ohio) – 112
