On Saturday, April 22nd, former St. James Area wrestling coach Eugene Hildebrandt was honored for his hard work and dedication to the sport of wrestling. Hildebrandt was formally inducted into the Minnesota Chapter National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum. The honors banquet was held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Austin, Minnesota. Although Hildebrandt was informed back in October of 2016 that he will be included in 2017 hall of fame class, the magnitude of the honor still hasn’t sunk in yet.
