Kathy Bresnahan shows the West High Athletic Hall of fame to the camera crew and producer of “The Miracle Season” on Dec. 15, 2017.

“The first time I came out here was when we were trying to get the story. Being back I feel like I’m back home. There’s something about Iowa and being at this school,” Shilaimon said.
