Mariemont High School senior Adam Romick recently signed a letter of intent with Taylor University for soccer.
According to Adam's father, Brian, Adam has been playing soccer since he was four or five years old. "He has always wanted to play college soccer, for as long as I can remember," said Brian. "He made this happen. He did this on his own. We are extremely proud of him and thrilled that he gets to continue to play a sport he loves."
Present at the signing ceremony were Adam's parents, Brian and Kristen, Adam's sister, Caroline, Taylor University's head men's soccer coach, Gary Ross, MHS varsity boys soccer coach, Erik Vanags, Mariemont High School principal, Dr. James Renner, teammates and friends.
The high school boys varsity soccer team had a great year. In the Warriors' first season in Division II, the final statewide poll placed the Warriors at #12 out of 191 schools. They were CHL Champions (7-0-0) and Division II Sectional Champions.
Coach Erik Vanags said Adam was "an excellent mentor and teammate, who provided leadership to his teammates both on and off the field."
Adam currently plays midfield although he has experience in nearly all positions on the field. Adam's parents are excited about this next step for Adam. "Taylor University is a great place for Adam to grow in the sport and in his faith," said Adam's mom, Kristen.
Good luck and congratulations, Adam!
