Arturo Romero ♦ Muskegon Oakridge
Soccer ♦ Junior
Arturo Romero needed all of a month to rewrite Oakridge’s single-season scoring record – and he’s not done yet. Romero scored all six goals during a 6-1 win over Fremont on Aug. 31, bringing his season total to a school record-setting 28 goals after just nine games. He added four more goals in Wednesday’s 4-1 win over Ravenna, which also was his seventh-straight game with three or more goals.
Romero joined the varsity as a freshman and earned Division 3 all-state honorable mention as a sophomore. His six goals against Fremont will make the MHSAA record book, he needs just seven more goals to make the single-season list, and he’s carrying the second-longest hat trick streak in MHSAA boys soccer history. Oakridge is 8-1-1 and 2-0 in West Michigan Conference play.
