“The KCAC warmly welcomes Hastings College, Head Coach Cara Romeike, and her team into the KCAC Women’s Wrestling fold for the 2020-21 season. In a COVID-19 focused athletic environment, it is refreshing to see sport growth and to see the outstanding work by Coach Romeike since she and I first spoke earlier this year,” stated Dr. Scott Crawford, KCAC Commissioner. “For me, it’s a lot of fun to see her growth from student-athlete to head coach with her first collegiate program in just a few short years.”
“Hastings College is greatly appreciative of the KCAC for accepting our associate membership application,” B.J. Pumroy, athletic director at Hastings College, said.”Our Women’s Wrestling Coach Cara Romeike has done great work in assembling a team in a short amount of time and we are thankful our team is afforded a chance to compete for championships. Her experience as a competitor in the KCAC allows a unique experience of coaching in the championships she competed in.”
“We are very thankful to now be a part of the KCAC,” Cara Romeike, the Broncos’ head coach of women’s wrestling, said. “It is very exciting to be able to bring my very own team to the same conference championship that I competed in myself. It is certainly the start of something great for Hastings College Women’s Wrestling.”
