Carlinville Wrestling earns a split at Vandalia

By Jackson Wilson

Sporting emotions behave like a giant yo-yo.

The Jan. 8 wrestling meet at Vandalia High School proved to be one of the more topsy-turvy nights of the season for the Carlinville Cavaliers.

Despite a rocky finish to the evening, Carlinville head coach Tim Johnson is remaining extremely optimistic about the team’s progression as the campaign enters its final stretch.
