Effingham High School hosted Vandalia in a boys golf meet Tuesday and claimed a 151-198 victory. Three Hearts finished in the 30-stroke range.

Jackson Wendling led the way with a 36 while Callaway Smith tallied a 37 and Sean Sandifer a 38. The other counting score was Jake Linders with a 40. Non-counting scores were Brandon Dahnke 53 and Reed Schafer 59.

"The kids played really well," said EHS Coach Jeff Schafer. "Jackson played great hitting eight of nine greens in regulation making nine pars. Callaway continued to play super for a freshman and Sean had his best nine-hole match score. Jake shot 40 with two ob and did a much better job of keeping his round together. Hopefully we can take this confidence into the weekend at Mattoon."

Vandalia was led by Jake Bowen 45, Zach Schaal 47, Levi Cox 49 and Alec Schroeder 57.

Exhibition scores for the Hearts were Michael Woltman 57, Matt Linders 58 and Dustin Gurley 75.
