As the winter sports teams conclude their seasons, many teams and individuals have distinguished themselves on the court or on the mat.
In particular, we congratulate the five wrestlers who qualified for the state meet: Trevor Pyle, Alex Foster, Jake Harris, John Vosholler and Jacob Whalen. Pyle ended up capturing third place for the second consecutive year.
The Vandalia High School basketball squad captured the conference title and made it to the regional finals before losing to Pana by three points last week. Also, the Brownstown High School girls basketball team upset South Central in the opening round of regional play.
Additionally, the Vandalia Junior High School volleyball squads are still alive in the playoffs.
We congratulate these and other athletes for their hard work and determination. Job well done.
