Clipped From The Daily Inter Lake
Timeout for Tiede By Tom Tiede BOB No Grapple Tourney THfc MONTANA HIGH SCHOOL Association is t i n g into UK- habit of overlooking Kalispell as lel'_- tournament locale, much to the understandable cliagrm of local followers. Saturday, the board met Helena and either lost, misplaced or made paper airplanes w i t h an application from the Flathead High School lor the 1962 State Wrestling meet. Grapple coaches Bob Olson and Neil Hart had submittr the request long before any other school, and their soundly-based enthusiasm was generally recognized with agreeable r u m o r s around the state. In short, Kalispell was the likely- spot for the meet. However, with two Great Falls representatives a t t h e weekend MHSA b o a r d meeting (Chink Seymore and William Swarthout) and nary a friendly Indian in the bunch, Great Palls was given the tournament nod. (G.F. just had the meet three years back). Furthermore, Kalispell ' had a bid in for the Class B cage tournament also, and was goose-egged out in favor of Cut Bank: And what is the MHSA's mossy and dog-eared excuse? ispell is not centrally located." . . . .A few at a state meeting the Montana wrestling coaehfes cided to move.'the. mat tourney from the beforehand permanent grounds at Bozeman so that it could around the state and give all schools capable oÂ£ handling it, a chance. It is only fair 'that each "school given equal opportunity of tournament bids to help own programs and not be athletically stunted because of geographical misfortunes. This column respectfully suggest that the MHSA is operating on as mossy dog-eared a program as their excuses suggest. Step 01 the way, gentlemen, you're blocking progress. Hugh A. Jennings was lucky to get through his 1896 season with Baltimore alive. In '129' games Jennings was hit by a pitched. ball a record 49 times.
