ROXBURY TWP., N.J — Roxbury High School, one of the top high schools in the state of New Jersey, hosted a Letter of Intent/College Commitment Ceremony for 2013 NJSIAA Wresting Tournament champion Dillon Artigliere.
“Dillon is the epitome of what we want an athlete to be at Roxbury. He’s outstanding in the classroom, on the mat, with his teammates and in the community,” said RHS Director of Athletics Stuart Mason.
Artigliere is part of a prestigious athletic tradition at Roxbury, joining state wrestling champions such as Ryan Fikslin, state champion in 2005, who went on to attend Rutgers, as well as Tom Sloan, 1976 state champion, who went on to attend Lehigh University.
Artigliere’s commitment to Cornell University, however, puts him a league of his own.
“What is really unique about him is that he is the first Roxbury wrestling state champion to go to an Ivy League school,” said RHS Principal Jeffrey Swanson. “This really speaks to his academic acumen as well as his physical prowess.”
