Effingham won its first two games of the day over Mount Zion and Mount Olive.
“In the two games earlier this morning, we played so much better than we have this summer,” Schafer said. “How we played three weeks ago and how we played today, we’re doing a lot better.”
Effingham’s second day of the tournament begins today at 3:50 p.m. against Newton.
Teutopolis will take on Salem today 11 a.m.
