Competition makes a person work harder, but what happens when one’s competition is their family?

Matthew Gromowsky, senior, and his brother Josh, sophomore, are two of the most academically competitive people at Skutt Catholic. “I’d say we have a fairly competitive relationship. That’s definitely what made me take the ACT so many times, because I wanted to get a 36 before him,” Matthew commented. After a string of 35s, Matthew finally received a 36 on his ninth attempt and completed his goal of beating his brother.

Josh also earned a perfect 36 only a little while after Matt’s. “It took me five tries to get 36,” said Josh.

The Gromowsky brothers attribute their brains to genetics and reading a lot as kids.

These Mary Our Queen alumni are the best of friends and don’t let their competitive spirits obstruct their brotherly bond. Smarts aren’t the only thing they have in common; they enjoy playing ping pong and video games with each other as well as debating political ideas for fun.

They’ve tried to make the most of their Skutt Catholic experience by excelling in both academics and extracurricular participation, each of them have their own activities they enjoy. Matthew played football, ran track, as well as participated in chess club and Science Olympiad. Josh is a member of Science Olympiad and Mock Trial.

Their competition is, for the most part, healthy and good spirited. It helps them push each other to work harder and strive to reach their fullest potential. Iron sharpens iron after all.
