Happy and Sad Time for Mustangs

EFFINGHAM COUNTY, GA (WTOC) - The South Effingham High School wrestlers left for the Atlanta area with a heavy heart Wednesday morning. They're off to the state championships but not with one of their star players. Thomas Medlin was killed in a traffic crash (see Effingham County Accident Claims Second Victim).

Students have written cards and brought in flowers, which the school will bring to the memorial service.

The memorial service will be on Sunday, February 24 at 3pm in the chapel of the Thomas C. Strickland & Sons Funeral Home on West Chatham Parkway in Pooler.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to Thomas' "wrestling family" fund at South Effingham High School "Take Down Club", a non-profit organization.
