Nevada only had two wrestlers compete at the 14th annual Jones Brothers Tournament at Iowa Falls Saturday.

But the Cubs made the most of their limited opportunities by crowning one champion and producing one third-place winner.

Nevada finished last in the team standings, but put up a strong score of 42.5 considering what the team lacked in numbers. West Marshall won the tournament with 178 points and North Butler-Clarksville was second with 151.

The Cubs also competed in a double-dual at Saydel Dec. 16. The Cubs lost to Saydel in a 37-36 battle and suffered a 72-12 setback at the hands of I-35 in falling to 0-5 in duals on the season.

Here is what we learned from the Cubs' showing at Iowa Falls and Saydel:
