ALTAMONT — It was another productive weekend on the mats for Iola High’s younger wrestlers.

The Mustang grapplers competed in a junior varsity tournament at Labette County High School Saturday, braving the cold on the way to multiple top-three finishes.

Leading the charge was Ean DeLaTorre, who won both of his matches to win the 157-pound division.
