And that's just fine with everyone involved in the Missouri Duals.
"The teams are stacked," Helias coach Travis Reinsch said Thursday as the Helias Crusaders prepared to host the 14-team Duals starting tonight. "There are great wrestlers on every team, it will be well-worth coming out to watch."
The Jefferson City Jays are in the Gold Division, which includes Class 4 ranked teams in Ozark (No. 2) and Waynesvile (No. 4), Kearney (No. 1 in Class 3) and Omaha Burke, which finished third in the largest class at Nebraska's state tournament last year.
