Carley Anderson Wins Championship Wrestling Title

On Sunday, March 21, 2021, Carley Anderson ‘21 earned the 135 lb. Championship Title at the 2nd Annual BCWCA Girls’ Wrestling Invitational in Montvale, NJ! This is Carley’s second season wrestling for Mount Olive High School's Wrestling team.  

Congratulations, Carley!


Carley’s wrestling career began in November of 2019 and she hasn’t looked back since. Carley didn’t consider wrestling until it was brought to her attention during MOTV’s morning announcements one day. She says, “I figured I might as well try it. What was stopping me? It looked like it would be fun”. As a previous gymnast, Carley was looking for a sport that could equally challenge her. Carley’s experience at her first wrestling practice confirmed her hopes; the practice was tough, engaging, and fun. Carley was immediately hooked. 

Despite the challenges of being an athlete during a pandemic, Carley’s second wrestling season has brought great successes.  Carley is passionate about improving her skills, learning from past mistakes, and she is focused on her short and long term goals. Carley explains, “I love to workout. I love to wrestle. It’s easy to show up and be passionate about what I’m doing because I love it so much”. Carley attributes her great successes to her focus, determination, and the support she receives from her family, friends, coaches, and teammates. 

Carley hopes to share her love for wrestling with girls in the community who may also be interested. Carley thinks it is important to share that while the team may be mostly male, there is always a spot available for anyone looking to join. She is deeply committed to her belief that wrestling is for anyone. As for Carley’s future, she is eagerly preparing and looking forward to Regionals and States. Last year, Carley placed 5th at the State Competition. This year, Carley is ready to surpass that. Carley says, “I know it will be tough. But I also know I can do it”. After graduation Carley plans to wrestle at the collegiate level but has not yet made her specific plans public.
