TOLEDO -- Effingham High School competed in the Cumberland Skull and Crossbones Wrestling Invitational Saturday.

"Overall we wrestled very well during the tournament considering we wrestled with two new freshmen in the varsity lineup and were missing three varsity wrestlers," said EHS Coach Cody Harpster.

"We had two wrestlers place. Casey Holle (132) took sixth as well as Alex Arcola (145). I am really impressed with our young team bettering themselves with every match."

The invitational was won by Prairie Central with 246.5 points followed by Shelbyville 179.5, Herrin 147.5, Lawrenceville-Red Hill 124, Benton 120, Cumberland/Casey-Westfield 116, Carlyle 112, Olney 111, Mount Olive 98.5, Mount Carmel 88, Oakwood 80, Carmi-White County 54, Carterville 46, Harrisburg 42.5, Decatur Eisenhower 35 and Effingham 9.

The Hearts will be back in action Tuesday at Olney.
