Wrestlers, Basketball Algona, (la.) Upper D«< MeJn»t-9 Thursday, December 2, 1965 Teams Will Be Busy Algona high school's wrestling team hosted Clarion in the opening North Central Conference dual meet of the season here last night, putting their 1-2 season mark on the line against the tough Cowboys. Saturday, the locals travel to Eagle Grove for the annual invitational meet there, Meanwhile, Algona high's basketball team has a pair of loop frays on the agenda this weekend, while Garrigan's unbeaten basketball club will face a tough foe, St. John's , at Bancroft this Saturday night. The Johnnies are also without loss. . Coach Champ Martin's grapplers posted a 28-18 victory over Estherville and dropped meets to Britt, 37-12, and Blue Earth, 22-17, in earlier action. The team features three unbeaten men, Larry Munger at 112, who has a fall and two decisions to his credit, Dave Martin, 154, with a fall, decision and draw so far, and Tom Fitzpatrick, heavyweight, who has a fall, decision and forfeit on the ledger. Don Camp, who splits his time between the varsity and B-team, has a decision in his lone varsity match. The basketball Bulldogs travel to Humboldt and a meeting with the Wildcats Friday night, then host the rugged Webster City Lynx here the following evening in two loop frays. Coach Howie Stephenson's club, 2-1 for the season and 0-1 in league play following a heart-breaking 65-64 loss to Eagle Grove here Saturday night, will be out to improve both records with a pair of victories. Dale Teeter, perhaps the smoothest scorer ever seen in these parts, got 37 points, his career high and only eight under the all-time single-game effort, against the Eagles, now has 84 points in three games this season - AN AVERAGE OF 28 POINTS PER GAME. Coach Stephenson would like to have more scoring balance from , his team, however, as second best average on the squad is a nine point mark by Dan Merryman. Then come Dave Walker, 8.3, Craig Espe, 7.3, and Tom Claude, 7. The team has a 63.3 offewftitft-mark.aad.^.; 55 point defensive avefage; Fouls " incurred with the new pressing defense have also taken their toll in games to date. The Garrigan-St. John's contest promises to be a real hassle. Coach V. J. Meyer, St. John's head man, says he has the best basketball team he has had at the school in 27 years - and that's saying a lot, because he's had some good ones. .The Johnnies are tall, shoot well and are rough under the boards and on defense. Coach Steve McCall of the Bears also has a fine team. His "shake, rattle and roll" defense has been responsible for opening victories over Fort Dodge and Emmetsburg Catholic- and while fouls have been plentiful, he's gotten good help from what appears to be an adequate bench - a necessity if the press is used. Garrigan's leading scorer is big Dick Muller, who has pumped home 41 points for a 20.5 average, Brian LaBarre, 11, Dick Bleich, 7.5, Bill Reding, 6, and Bob Smith, 5.5 All 12 members of the squad have, gotten into the scoring column this season. The Bears are averaging 80 points per game and have a 63.5 defensive mark. While all seem to be capable on defense, the fly-around boys are Bleich, Smith, LaBarre, Denny Long and Joe Ringsdorf. In both games the Bears have taken advantage of a large number of steals and interceptions to put points on the board, Rebounding chores are led by MuUer, Potthoff, Reding and Ringsdorf, all big enough to give most clubs a battle under the boards, AlgonanWins Bowling Meet On 868 Series Al Grill, well-known rural Algona man, topped the field re- centjy in a match-game bowling tournament, with the finals held at Star Lanes, Humboldt. Grill flipped an 868 series for four gam§s, including handicap, to finish high among the six finalists, Another Algonan, Bud Briggs, ; finished third in the field of the meet, which opened earlier at Algona Lanes. Grill defeated three bowlers and won another on a forfeit to reach the finals. GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BY OLD MAN MOSE Considering that there were some comparative "unknowns" playing games last Saturday, as well as some very well knowns, the picking was pretty good for many of our entries in the last contest of the season. Bob Bradford of Algona had 15 correct and a high score total guess of 62, which happened to be right on the nose. The So. Cal.-Wyoming contest totaled 62 points. He won the first place award. In second place was Bill Dudding of Bancroft with 15 right and a high game guess of 68. Third place went to Mrs. Ralph Moe with 15 right and high game total of 55. Incidentally, there was one game on the west coast that was never played due to the field being flooded out, so that didn't count against anybody, no matter how you picked it. Extra honorable mention went to two entries, Mrs. B. J. Bradford and Pat Chrischilles, both of Algona, with 14 correct. Honorable Mention, to wind up the season, goes to Greg Allen, Jim Bradford, Loren Hahle, Steve Chrischilles, Bob Williams, Mrs. Merrill Walker, Kay Bradford, Pat Nugent, Brett Bartlett, all of Algona; Paul Hasse, Burt; Dave Everds, Allison; Mrs. Barbara Bruns, Burnsville, Minn.; Eugene Dahlhauser, West Bend; Mrs. Amos Krominga, Titonka; Mrs. Geo. Baumann, Lakota; Mrs. Arthur Klein, Sexton; and Jim Meyer, Fenton. They all had 13 correct. Old Man Mose wishes you well, during the winter, and hopes to find you all back in the contest come next fall.
