    CARLINVILLE – Led by two second-place finishes from sophomore Sierah Ruffner, the Vandalia girls track team finished seventh at the South Central Conference Championships on Tuesday, with 28 points.

    The meet also marked the final SCC Championships for Vandalia coach Mike Travelstead.

    “I didn’t think about, but I guess it is,” he said. “It’s starting to sink in; 23 years is a long time. I’ve enjoyed it.”
