It has been a learning season for the Northeastern Junior College Wrestling team for the 2016-2017 comeback year. However, with the trials and tribulations of a whirlwind season Anthony Curtis came out on top. Curtis won the NJCAA Rocky Mountain Regional without giving up a single point up against him in the 157# class. He was one of three Northeastern wrestlers to qualify for the national tournament in February, placing fifth in his weight class and becoming an All American.
Curtis is a Cherry Creek graduate and is a pre-pharmacy major at NJC, holding a 3.5-4.0 grade point average. He has plans to further his studies at the University of Denver.
