The team was composed of just seven players, their names are: Jarred Merchant, Joey VonWahlde, Brady Faber, Will Spaulding, Bran- don Schiefelbein, Tyler Smith and Logan Schlueter. The team used an explosive offense led by Jarred Merchant to win eight of their nine confer- ence games by 16 or more points, six of those games by 20 or more points, and one game by more than 30 points. The Cubs tough defense was one of the reasons they were so successful this season. Oppo- nents scored only an average of 25 points a game whereas the cubs were averaging 46 points a game. CMC Tournament: Kimball entered the tourna- ment with an undefeated regular season record and high hopes of walking away with a first place fin- ish.
