Victor Romeiro
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Oliver Ames senior Victor Romeiro has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Jan. 9 through Jan. 15. Romeiro is the 16th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year and fourth in the winter season.

Romeiro continued his outstanding senior season with a big week for the Tigers. Wrestling at 126, he went 4-0 overall and earned a gold medal at the 2023 Kieron Smith Memorial Tournament (held in honor of the former Monty Tech coach). He picked up back-to-back pins to advance to the semifinals, where he won by major decision (10-1). In the final, he pinned Southwick’s Isiah Wood at 2:50 to claim the individual title. For the season, Romeiro is 10-1 overall with seven pins and three major decisions. OA stayed one back of Sharon in the Davenport standings with two league dual meets remaining, and the Tigers have now won seven of their nine dual meets in 2023.

“Victor has been on a mission this season,” said Oliver Ames head coach John McKeon. “Since getting healthy, he has been making up for lost time, scoring points for his team in bunches and getting quick pins. This weekend’s tournament win is hopefully just the beginning, as Victor has put in a lot of hard work to be successful, and it’s exciting to see it pay off.”

OA won two of three matches at the Sandwich quad meet heading into the week and on Wednesday earned its second win of the league season by beating Stoughton 48-28. In the win over the Black Knights, Romeiro secured a pinfall victory in 1:06. Over the weekend, the Tigers won all four of their matchups, including close battles against Milton and Norwood. Romeiro was at the heart of all OA’s success, winning all five of his individual matches, including four pins.
