Junior Colby Romjue recently placed third in PIAA Wrestling South Central Regional Championships.

Romjue has a total record of 29 wins and 2 losses, the highest on the wrestling team.

This is the first time that Romjue has placed for states.

Romjue attributes his achievements to his practice.

A lot of summer practice, hours and hours,” said Romjue. “A lot of club also, but just a lot of hard work and dedication to it. My coaches, coach Trimpy helped a lot, a lot of summer practices with just him and I in there for hours. I go to club and all of that just ties together.”

The Warrior wrestling team has a season record of 13-5 and a season league record of 6-0.

Last year, Romjue placed sixth at districts, jumping up three places this year to secure a place at states.

Romjue believes that aggression has helped him this season.

More aggression,” said Romjue. “I think I’m attacking when I should and not when I shouldn’t. Just overall smarter wrestling.”

Romjue will wrestle next in the PIAA State Championships on March 7 to March 9 at the Giant Center in Hershey.

Romjue advises younger wrestlers to work hard.

Dedication, dedication, dedication,” said Romjue. “You gotta keep your head in it, keep looking at the end goal, and just get it.”
