The Georgia High School Association Class 6A wrestling team team from South Effingham High School competed in the May River Invitational in Bluffton, South Carolina, and thirty other teams last week. The Mustangs showed up ready to toss some competition, with eight of their wrestlers coming in the top ten, six of those in the top five, and the team as a whole coming in second place. 

The grapplers from South Effingham scored a total of 184 points. Leading the Mustangs on the mat was senior Jacob Galindez coming in second in the 113lbs weight class, and freshman Moose Bringer finishing second in the 132lbs weight class. Coming in third for the 152lbs weight class was junior Enrique Santana. Sophomore and Junior Ashton Anderson and William Christmas came in fourth in their 285lbs and 170lbs weight classes. Followed next by Emilio Santana, a freshman who placed fifth in the 106lbs weight class. Closing out the top ten placement for the Mustangs was sophomore Jacob Stellhorn of the 113lbs weight class and Junior Stephen Tootle of the 120lbs weight class, both coming in sixth place. 

The Mustangs fell to the Camden County wrestlers but bested the third-place team, Ashley Ridge, by sixteen points. Overall the Mustangs sought and achieved great success in the May River Invitational coached by Chris Bringer. Their next tournament will be held this Saturday and is the GHSA Region II 6A Duals in Richmond Hill. Good luck to the Mustang wrestlers.
