Anthony Curlo Accomplishes Rare 3 PEAT TRIPLE CROWN  

Congratulations to Anthony Curlo from Chester as he accomplished a rare feat by winning the Triple Crown (Folkstyle, Freestyle and Greco-Roman) for his third consecutive year in the recently held NJ State Wrestling Championships. On March 11th Anthony won his 80 lbs. weight class in Folkstyle that was held at the Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ. He then completed the 2nd and 3rd legs of the significant accomplishment on Sunday May 21st held at Union High School in the International styles known as Freestyle and Greco-Roman at 83 lbs. 


Anthony continues to be nationally ranked as he is listed as high as #3 in the country by one well known media source. His Father, Anthony Curlo, Sr. summed it up by saying “There are no secrets to success. It is a result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.”


Anthony continues to be grateful for the opportunity and gives special consideration and thanks to all his coaches including Jeff Buxton, Cory Cooperman, Mario Mason among dozens of others. The International Legend, Jeff Buxton summed it up best by saying, “1) Anthony’s unwavering commitment, 2) Being the hardest worker in the room and 3) His coachability, there is your Triple Crown!”   


Anthony will continue competing in both Freestyle and Greco-Roman championships this summer as he will be representing Team NJ in the prestigious 14U Schoolboy division.  These duals represent the best of the best as every state around the US sends their all-star teams to compete. Last Year Anthony led Team NJ and was recognized as an ”All American” as it was the first time in the history of NJ wrestling that the Schoolboy team has won both styles.  Anthony’s team was subsequently recognized by Governor Murphy and various congressman for their significant accomplishment. That team will be forever known as #DOUBLECHAMPS.


Anthony has aspirations to represent the USA at the world championships in the coming years.  He has just begun looking at top tier high schools in the state that will challenge him both academically and athletically.  He will enter 9th grade in the fall of 2024.
