Romero wins NCAA Wrestling National Title

Lindenwood University junior Abner Romero won the 2021 NCAA Division II National Championship title for wrestling at 174 pounds. In addition, Romero along with five teammates achieved All-American status as the team finished third.

Originally from Fresno, Ca., Romero is majoring in physical education and has had an impressive career at Lindenwood. The 2020-21 season marks the second time he has been named an All-American. "I predicted this," said the 174-pound champion Romero.  "A year ago today, I had this moment taken from me…This is not random, I worked harder than everyone else and just believed that I was better than everyone else.  I'm better than I was a year ago, and all the hard work I put in paid off.”

The complete story is available on the Lindenwood Athletics site.
