Cubs finish as Runner-up for Section (wrestling)

The Cubs faced a very ready and emotional B-B-E team that showed up to wrestle. At the start of the season, the B-B-E wrestling team lost their head coach in a vehicle accident. The Jaguars were ready to wrestle in front of their home crowd, but the Cubs shut them down in the end, to get a 35-27 victory to advance to the finals.

The finals came down to two teams that have been there the last three years. They are Kimball and ACGC. The Falcons are ranked second in class A and the Cubs are ranked ninth in class A. ACGC was definitely the favored team, but Kimball gave them everything they had. Kimball wrestled very well, but did not have enough power to get the upset. The Cubs lost the dual 27-34 and gave it everything they had. Losing a couple of close matches, and having three kids out with injuries, gave ACGC the edge they needed to knock off the Cubs for a chance to wrestle in the MSHSL State Tournament.
