U-Algona, (le.) Upper DM M»!nM Thursday, Nev*mb«r 4, 1965 GHS Hoopsters To , „ f - M „ A LuverneSet Feature veterans p or Area Farm Has Homecoming At Fire second Time, 3 Months Coach Steve McCftll, starting his second year at the helm of Garrifan's Golden Bear basket- hall team, feels that depth may allow his club to pull a few games out of the fire when the 1965-66 season gets underway Nov. 23. That night, the Bears will host Ft. Dodge high school, one of the top teams In the area for the past three years. McCall has nine men back who saw varied amounts of duty with the varsity last season, ranging from Dick Blelch, Don Potthoff, Joe Rlngsdorf, Dick Muller, Bill Reding and Bob Smith, who played quite a bit, to Denny Long, Jim Youngwlrth and Brian LaBarre, who saw limited action. The Bears have "tallies" In Potthoff, Muller, Reding, Rlngs- dorf and Youngwlrth, all from 6-1 to 6-4, plus Jack Muller, who as a sophomore may make some of the veterans hustle to hold their jobs, He's a rugged 6-3 and used his 207 pounds to advantage during the recent football season. Blelch Is one of the quickest players ever seen In this area. How he manages to chase practically every opponent around the court from the opening whistle to the last buzter hasn't been diagnosed - but his work would please any coach as it does Steve. Coach McCall says his team is going to run more than last year, feeling it will have to with so many teams using the press on defense. Three other squad members who should aid the cause this winter are Tom Wagner, Don Courtney and Mike Nitchals. Some of the youngsters have moved up from last season's fresh-soph outfit, which won 12 of 17 games. Thp varsity raptured 10 ami lost 12 a year airo, topping by onp (lie totai won in the preceding two seasons on thr hard court. Thp Bears averapcd GO.G points per game, while allowing GO.7. Potthoff was thp club's leading scorer with 301 points and a 13." avprage. And he also grabbed a lot of refunds. Of the left-over squad members, Reding got 106 points, Dick Muller, 153, Blefrh, 149, Rlngs- dorf, 51, Youngwlrth and LaBarre, 8 cacti, and Long, 2. Seniors who figured prominently last year, but now gradu- ,ated, are Chuck Becker, Jerry Bradley and Tom Denier - and r tfielr slices will have to be filled. Coach McCall figures Bancroft St. John's, St. Edmond of Ft. Dodge, Austin Pacelll, Estherville and Em rnetslmrg Catholic should all have good clubs. They're all on the Garrlgan slate. The scrap for positions on McCall's club should be a good one- and If hustle, size and desire are found In the right proportions, the Bears should be a capable outfit this winter. Here's the schedule: Nov. 23 - Ft. Dodge High Nov. 27 - Emmetsburg Cath. Dec. 4 - At St. John's Dec. 10 - At M. City Newman Dec. 11 - Pocahontas Cath. Dec. 17 - At St. Edmond Dec. 10 - Don Bosco Jan. 7 - At Pocahontas Cath. Jan. 8 - St. John's Jan. 14 - Austin Pacelll Jan. 15 - At Don Bosco Jan. 21 - M. City Newman Jan. 23-30 - DYO Tourney here Feb. 4 - At Granvllle Spaiding Feb. 5 - At Carroll Kuemper Feb. 11 - At Emmetsburg Cath. Feb. 12 - Estherville Feb. 18 - St. Edmond Bulldogs Have 5 Letter Winners On BB Roster The cleats cam* off and basketball shoes went on during the weekend at Algona high school as Coach Howl* Stephenson opened drills for the 190B-66 season, which opens with a trip to Emmetsburg and a meeting with the rugged E-Hawk« Tuesday evening, Nov. 16 - and that means there isn't too much time tor preparation. Five letter men and eight other prospects have reported. Lettermen ara seniors Dale Teeter, Dan Merryman and Dave Walker and juniors Craig Espe and Tom Claude. Other squad members are seniors Denny Breldert, Gary Barr and Brad Kraft, juniors Brocks Laws, Bill Boldrldge and Steve Waller and sophomores Rich Black and Tom Jones. In Teeter and Merryman, Stephenson has the top two scorers from his 1964-65 club, which won 12 and lost 10 and wound up fifth in the North Central Conference with a 7-7mark. tral Conference with a 7-7 mark. The team, however, was the second highest scoring club In the school's history, with a 63-point per game average. Only the 1963-64 team, which finished third In the State Tournament, topped that mark with a 74.5 average. Teeter set a new single-season record for scoring average with a 21.4 mark as he canned 471 points. Merryman hit 250 points for an 11.4 average. Both shot better than 40 percent from the field, with Toeter hitting 45 and Merryman 41 percent of all attempts. And from the free throw line, Teeter hit 77 and Merryman 80 percent. Espe tallied 71 points, hitting 49 percent from the field and a 6.5 average; Walker got 51 points, 5. average; andClaude 47 points, 4.7 average last season. <<We should be able to score says Stephenson, "but we don't know how we'll do on defense, and we'll need lots of help from the benceh." At least five teams in the loop should be real tough, according to the coach, who says Iowa Falls, Humboldt, Webster City, Clarion and Clear Lake, the latter with all kinds of height, should be real rugged. Teeter, barring unforeseen Injuries, etc., should be aiming at the all-time individual-scoring record this year. He has 599 points and a career average of 15.3 points per game through two seasons - 231 points shy of Sig Wood's career mark of 830 and average of 12.9. Teeter has topped 10 points in games 27 times, has been over 20, 14 times and has a high single game of 30 points so far. The single game record is 45 points by Doug Meyer several years ago. Last year's season mark is a trifle misleading. The Bulldogs went into a slump after winning four of their first six and lost five straight, then rallied from a 4-7 mark to finish 12-10, with the final loss coming in Sub- State action at Spencer, with Storm Lake topping the locals. Here is the entire schedule: Nov. 16 - At Emmetsburg Nov. 19 - At Swea City Nov. 27 - Eagle Grove Dec. 3 - At Humboldt Dec. 4 - Webster City Dec. 10 - Hampton Dec. 17 - Clear Lake Jan. 4 - At Clarion Jan. 7 - Iowa Falls Jan. 8 - Spencer Clinic Jan. 14 - At Eagle Grove Jan. 21 - Humboldt Jan. 22 - At Webster City Jan. 28 - At Hampton Jan. 29 - Estherville Feb. 4 - At Clear Lake Feb. 11 - Clarion Feb. 18 - At Iowa Falls Six Lettermen Report -Wrestling Champ Martin, coach of Algona high school's varsity wrestling team, opened drills here Monday with six lettermen and a large group of eager squad members. The six returnees from last year's team, which won 10 out of 13 dual meets and placed second in the State Tournament, include Dave Martin, state champion at 145, Tom Fitzpatrick, second at the state, heavyweight, Larry Munger, sectional champ at 103, Tom Samp, Don Camp and Clint Young. Algona outscored its opponents in dual meets a year ago, 358-148. Algona has until Nov. 17 to get ready for the season opener. That's when the always-rugged Dritt team will visit the locals on the Algona mat. The schedule looks like this; Nov. 17 - Britt Nov. 20 - Estherville Nov. 27 - At Blue Earth Dec. 1 - Clarion Dec. 4 - E. Grove Inv. Dec. 8 - At Rockwell City Dec. 10 - At Humboldt Dec. 11 - Algona Invitational Dec. 17 - At Ft. Dodge Jan. 1 - Osage Inv.
