TCW Wrestler of the Week – Anthony Montalvo (Buchanan HS, CS)

ANTHONY MONTALVO (Buchanan, CS), Returning CIF State Champion



Placing at the prestigious Clovis “Doc Buchanan” Invitational is no easy feat. In fact, the Doc Buchanan is rated among the toughest tournaments in the country. Only the elite “Best of the Best” achieve the distinct honor of winning the coveted Stetson Cowboy hat. Oklahoma State signee Anthony Montalvo of Buchanan High School was spot on this past weekend as he defeated 2017 Beast of the East runner-up Jacob Cardenas of New Jersey’s Bergen Catholic for the title. This victory added to his to collection of Cowboy hats, which is now at three. During the competition, Montalvo pinned four of his five opponents, with only one making it past the second round. Entering the third period of the championship final down 3-2, Montalvo capitalized on his aggressive style in the waning seconds by taking down and putting Cardenas on his back for the victory. Congratulations to Montalvo on being this week’s TCW Wrestler of the Week.
