MEEKS HONORED: The entire student body at Roosevelt High School celebrated fellow-student John Meeks’ wrestling accomplishments Tuesday
Des Moines Roosevelt’s John Meeks should be used to attention after wrestling in front of thousands at the state tournament, but he was a little overwhelmed Tuesday morning.
The whole student body gathered to celebrate Meek’s undefeated high school career on the wrestling mat.
Meeks finished his high school career this past weekend, with a 168-0 record. Among his accomplishments are winning four consecutive state titles.
Channel 13 Sports’ Chris Hassel will have more on the celebration on the Channel 13 News at Six.
