Three Bulldogs Named On All-Conference First Team Tu.lday, Nov. 16, 1965 Algono, (Id.) Upper Des Maine* DAVE MARTIN DALE TEETER BOB BRADFORD BILL FARNHAM Algona's Bulldogs, who wound up tied for second in the North Central Conference football race this fall, also placed second to the loop champion Webster City Lynx in placing men on the All- Conference team named this week. Three Bulldogs, all seniors, were honored. They were Halfback Dave Martin, End Dale Teeter and Guard Bob Bradford. They joined Ted Kesler, Webster City end; John Brandrup, Webster City, and Jerry Boyington, Clarion, tackles; Lorin Egemo, Eagle Grove, guard; Dave Brooks, Webster City, center; Dwight Sann, Clarion, quarterback; Tom Jerde, Webster City, halfback; and Bruce Simpson, Webster City, fullback, on the first team. So the Lynx wound up with five first team men, Algona three, Clarion two and Eagle Grove one. Boyington and Brooks were the only juniors named and Brandrup and Egemo were the only unanimous selections for the first team. Jerde is the only repeater from 1964. * Bill Farnham, Algona's senior center, was named on the second team, along with Dave Whitney, Iowa Falls, and Bill Unstead, Eagle Grove, ends; King Bavender, Iowa Falls, and Bruce McDowell, Hampton, tackles; Clair Cramer, Clarion, and Ray Bringolf, Webster City, guards; Al Larson, Webster City, quarterback; Gil Tidman,Hampton, and Kelly Moshter, Clarion, halfbacks; and John Yoder, Eagle Grove, fullback. Algona's all-loop choices earned their positions on the club with outstanding performances as the locals posted a 6-2 season mark and 5-2 conference record. Martin rushed for 864 yards in 144 trips, an average of 5.1 yards per carry, second best single season total in modern history here, and led the team in scoring with 40 points. He was also a charged-up tackier on defense for Coach Jim Hershberger's club. Teeter, who tied the single season record for pass catches in 1964 when he glommed 22, led the club again this year in pass receiving as he caught 20 (and the team totaled 30) for 259 yards, He also caught three for extra points, scored three touchdowns for the Bulldogs ana intercepted five passes while turning in an outstanding season. Bradford was practically always a thorn in the side of the opposition, with flred-up play as a senior being one of the best Basons the Bulldogs were rated tough defensively. And Farnham again made his presence felt, with his blocking on offense and tackling on defense being big items in the Algona machine, The work of all four, plus the rest of the squad, was res- pons^bie ; fqr jJhe team's out" standing1 record AHS At E'burg Tonight; Grapplers Open Tomorrow LuVerne Wins Opener, 49-31, Over C-Wesley LuVerne high opened its 196566 basketball season with a convincing 49-31 win over Corwith- Wesley in the LuVerne gym, Saturday evening. A Homecoming crowd watched Coach Bryce Wickett's rangy and aggressive team roll to an early lead and keep it all the way. The squad has only two lettermen, one of them a senior, but prospects look good for the season. Box Score: LUVERNE fg ft pf R.

Cylinder boys 76-61 victors CYLINDER —The Cylinder - boys beat Burt by the score 7861 to open their basketball season here Friday night. : Cylinder led all the way through , the contest as John Wickman scored 37 points, Burt's Doug Ortmen led his team with 27 points. The Burt girls opened their season on the winning side by beating Cylinder 70-51. (Boys) Cylinder 17 45 «4 78 Burt 11 18 44 61 Fractures Hand Dennis Miller, Algona high wrestler, received a fracture of a bone in his right hand last week during practice, The hand is in a cast and he will be lost to the team for a month. The winter sports slate here begins with a bang this week as Algona high school's basketball and wrestling teams each see action twice. Garrigan's basketball team opens its season next Tuesday, Nov. 23. Coach Howie Stephenson's basketball team will kick off its 17-game slate at Emmetsburg tonight. While not much is known about the E-Hawks, meetings between the two schools have always been exciting - so this one will probably be a thriller. Then Friday night, the Bulldogs travel to Swea City for a meeting with the Trojans- and Algona-Swea City contests have also provided plenty in the way of thrillls down through the years. Coach Champ Martin's grapplers open their season, with 12 dual meets and three invitationals on the slate, tomorrow night (Wednesday) when they host the always-rugged Britt team. This Saturday night, Algona will host Estherville in the second dual meet of the year. Martin has six returnees from last year's very successful team, which posted a 10-3 dual record and placed second in the State Tournament, including State Champion Dave Martin, Tom Fitzpatrick, second in the meet, Larry Munger, Tom Samp, Don Camp and Clint Young, plus a group of eager newcomers. Coach Stephenson has five lettermen back from his 12-10 club last season which won half of 14 North Central Conference games and placed fifth. The Bulldogs, who went to the State Tournament the year before and finished third, got to Sub-State action before bowing out Letter winners are Dale Teeter, Dan Merryman, Dave Walker, Craig Espe and Tom Claude - and they probably will be the starters tonight. Teeter, who set a single season scoring record with 471 points and a 21.4 average (also a record) last year, will get able assistance from Merryman, second best scorer a year ago with 250 points and an 11.4 average. The other three will undoubtedly improve their point output, while Walker is certain to help Teeter and Merryman with the rebounding and Espe and Claude will raise heck with their helter-skelter defensive tactics. Teeter needs 232 points this season to shatter the career mark of 830 set by Sig Wood, a 1964 graduate now playing at Simpson College, With a career average of 15.3 for his first two years (39) games, Teeter should set a new record by mid-season. Coach Steve McCall'sGarrigan team will open against the strong Fort Dodge Dodgers here Nov. 23. Burt Boys Hope To Improve On Season Mark According to Coach AlKloppen, Burt's boys basketball team, which opened the 1965-66 season at Cylinder Friday night, will have to depend on hustle and desire if the club is to meet with success this year. A lack of height will make the other two qualities a necessity. There are eight letter men back from last year's team, which won only once in 17 starts. They are Doug Black, 5-9, Bob Ortman, 6-1, Duane Peter, 5-7, Bob Lovstad, 5-9, Don Gifford, 5-11, Joe Fries, 5-11, Jim Redemske, 5-7, and Clyde Moore, 6, all seniors. Leading prospects include Merwyn Cunningham, 5-10, senior; and Ron Presthus, 6-3, and Phil McFarland, 6, juniors, also members of the squad a year ago. Assistant coach is Richard Strouse, while Larry Coney is girls basketball coach. Cheerleaders are Vicki Koestler, Loreli Lavrenz, Sandra Schrader and Patricia Schrader. Here is the remainder of the schedule: Nov. 16 - Sentral Nov. 19 - Titonka Dec. 3 - At Lakota Dec. 7 - Thompson Dec. 10 - At Ledyard Dec. 14 - At Ringsted Dec. 17 - Rake Dec. 21 - Armstrong Jan. 4 - Ledyard Jan. 7 - At Sentral r- Jan. 11 - Ringsted Jan. 14 - At Armstrong Jan. 17 - State Line Tourney Jan. 28 - Lincoln-Central Feb. 4 - Swea City » Feb. 11 - At Titonka All games listed are boy-girl doubleheaders, except the Dec. 17 and Feb. 4 dates, when there will be boys varsity and junior varsity games. Four starters back on cage team at Titonka TITONKA - The Titonka Indians have four lettermen, all of whom were starters last year, back for the basketball team. The team lacks height and is weak on defense at present but rebounding should be one of the strong points. The four lettcr- !men arc Roger Akkerman (0-2), Ted Iscbrand (6-2), Allan Janssen (6-1) and George Pommer (6-0). Others in line for starting jobs are Phil Thomas, Greg Michaclson, Eldon Rike, Daryl Glcsking and Denny Rafdal. The Indians were 8-10 last season and 7-6 in the State Line Conference.
