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. The conference match against the host Vandals didn’t go as planned (69-9), but the Cavies walked away with a split thanks to a nailbiting win over the East-Alton Wood River Oilers in an intense opening dual (41-39).
