The Effingham Junior High School baseball squad won four more games over the weekend to improve its record to 11-1 on the season. In addition, Coach Rod Wiethop earned his career 300th win Friday when the Mustangs defeated Homer Glenn 4-3.

This was the second 300th victory for Wiethop who had celebrated his 300th win as a basketball coach earlier in the year. And he's done it over three states, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucy.
