What excites me most is the chance to build on the strong foundation of Helias Catholic’s wrestling program and to help our student-athletes achieve their full potential, both on and off the mat,” Coach Markway said. “I hope to contribute not only to the athletic success of the wrestling team but also to the overall growth and well-being of the student-athletes under my care.”

As a student-athlete at Knoxville Catholic High School from 1999–2003, he was a four-time state qualifier and three-time state placer, and he holds the record for most career wins at his alma mater.

Coach Markway will relocate to the Jefferson City area with his wife, Jess, and sons, Kyle and Henley.
