Lawrence D. (Rombo) Romboski played
only one year of varsity basketball at Washington High School but
blossomed into one the outstanding players in W&J history.
Romboski, a four-year letterman for the Presidents, still holds the
single game record for total points, a 43-point effort as a sophomore
against Bethany in 1956. For a number of years, he also held the W & J
career record with 1,294 points.
He was a member of the 1956-57 team which reached the NAIA district
playoffs before bowing to Indiana University of Pennsylvania despite
Romboski's 25 points before he fouled out.
Romboski, a resident of California, PA., was high scorer for a national
Army Air Defense Command championship team in 1961 and played for the
Tylerdale Civics, a Washington semi-pro team.
