Crusaders stay competitive in some of their wrestling matches
Helias, which dropped a 68-4 decision Friday to Warrensburg, went 0-5 in Saturday’s duals. But the Crusaders did put out some better efforts, including one against the Kirksville Tigers. KIrksville won 60-21, but several of the matches were very competitive.

The Helias Crusaders had it, they just couldn’t keep it. “It” was momentum in Friday afternoon’s Class 4 state championship game against the Webb City Cardinals at the Edward Jones Dome. Each time it looked like the Crusaders had momentum, the Cardinals came back to quickly snatch it away as they went on to post a 28-14 victory to claim their fourth straight state title and 12th overall.
Finishes in second place against Webb City
Update: Webb City downs Helias 28-14 for the Class 4 state championship.
It wasn’t the best of basketball seasons for the Jefferson City Lady Jays. They’re doing their best to not go through anything like last season again.
