Helias wrestling honored for greatness

A few years ago, Mike Jeffries was on a trip to Springfield. Jeffries, who was the president of the Missouri Wrestling Coaches Association, decided to take a tour of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame with his wife, Patti. And after going through the facility, he had a question. “We walked around and I wondered where wrestling was,” Jeffries. the longtime head coach at Helias High School, asked. Well, it’s there now as the Helias wrestling program was inducted Sunday night into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the Capitol Plaza Hotel.
