Lesko takes J-M wrestling job

The Jefferson-Morgan School Board Monday, following a nearly three-hour executive session, voted 7-2 to hire Mike Lesko as head varsity wrestling coach, a position he held for six years before stepping down in 2004 to spend more time with his children.
In 2007, Lesko returned to the sport as an assistant to Scott Rhodes, who resigned in April. During Lesko’s tenure as assistant and head coach, the Rockets had a 52-49 record, eight state qualifiers and one state medalist.
