Effingham High School competed in the Mattoon Wrestling Triangular Tuesday evening.

The Hearts lost the opener to Tolono Unity, 37-36 and fell in the second match to host Mattoon 71-10.

"Our first match was a good one against Tolono Unity," said EHS Coach Cody Harpster. "The match finished in a 36-36 tie. Both teams were tied with first takedowns so the match was decided by near falls. Tolno Unity had 12 near falls and we had eight. We wrestled hard again."

The Hearts are back in action Saturday in the Cumberland Invitational.
