ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - Roxbury High School sent two wrestlers to the 2017 NJSIAA Individual Wrestling State Championships at Boardwalk Hall over the weekend.

Senior Richard Reimers (138 pounds) and junior Michael Roumes (152 pounds) were each part of the 448-member field in this year’s tournament, the largest group of wrestlers to compete in New Jersey state tournament history.

In Friday night’s opening round, Reimers dropped a close match to Hackettstown’s Alex Carida, 6-4. Reimers trailed 2-1 through one period, then scored three quick points on an escape and takedown to jump ahead 3-2.

In the third period, after the duo traded “stalling” points, Carida picked up a 2-point reversal to send the Roxbury grappler to the consolation bracket.

Trying to wrestle his way back into medal contention, Reimers was thwarted by Summit’s Phil Angelo in his first and only consolation bracket. Reimers ended his season with a 32-10 record.

Roumes faced a similar fate, going 0-2 to finish his season at 30-12. In his first round match, the Roxbury junior lost a 11-4 decision to Seton Hall Prep’s TJ Calas. Roumes led the match early, courtesy of an opening minute 2-point takedown, however, the match quickly went down hill.

Calas earned two reversal points less than a minute later, coupled with three “nearfall” points to end the period on top 5-2. Following a scoreless middle frame, Calas added to his lead with six more “nearfall” points and a stalling point to win the match going away, 11-4.

In his consolation bracket match, Roumes lost a close 6-4 decision to North Hunterdon’s Cole Marra.
