Here's the slate: Friday night - Hampton at Algona high, basketball; Algona high at Humboldt, wrestling; and Garrigan at Mason City Newman, basketball. Saturday - Algona Invitational Wrestling Meet, Clarion, New Hampton, Rockwell City, Algona, afternoon and evening; and Pocahontas Catholic at Garrigan, basketball. And the high school wrestlers got the whole show underway when they traveled to Rockwell City for a dual meet last night (Wednesday). Coach Champ Martin's outfit needed a win the re and again Friday in the North Central Conference meet at Humboldt to level its season mark at 3-3. The Martin-men placed sixth in the Eagle Grove Invitational last Saturday, with two men, Dave Martin and Tom Fitzpatrick, getting individual championships and two others, Tom Samp and Bruce Bennett, placed fourth. The two first place finishers are the only two regulars on the squad who remain unbeaten this season. Fitzpatrick has been credited with seven wins, while Martin, a state champion last spring, has won six and posted a draw. Fitzpatrick was second in the state meet. Coach Howie Stephenson's basketball club took a giant step right back into the thick of the loop championship race with two wins during the past weekend, bopping Humboldt, 61-41, and getting past Webster City, 64-56, upping its record in the conference to 2-1 and season mark to 4-1. Stephenson- coached teams have now won 10 of the last 11 from Webster City. The Bulldogs, who found their free-throwing eyes, hitting 33 of 39 In the two games, displayed an improved defense that could serve them well from now on as the race thickens. And the scoring balance was better, also, with three men getting Into double figures to give needed help to Dale Teeter, who hit 51 points in the two outings. Algona has now scored an average of 63 points per game while posting a 52.4 defensive mark. Teeter has counted 135 points for a 27-point average, while Dan Merryman is 47 and 9.4; Dave Walker, 45, 9; Craig Espe, 38, 7.6; and Tom Claude, 34, 6,8. Big Tom Jones, sophomore brought up to the varsity re- Squads cently, has already given the club help under the boards, making Teeter and Walker more effective. Algona holds a 118-96 advantage In field goals; has hit 79 of 106 free throws to 70 of 120 (a 75 percent mark); has committed 92 fouls to 82 for the opposition and scored 315 points to 262. Teeter now needs 97 points for a new career scoring mark. He has 734 and the mark is 830. Coach Steve McCall's Bears, fresh from a rugged 68-67 victory over Bancroft St. John's Saturday night, are perfect so far this season with a 3-0 record. They feature a quick set of starters, plus a pretty fair bench, with the reserves playing important roles in two of the three wins. Leading scorer so far is big Dick Muller, with 56 points, good for an 18.7 average. He is followed by Don Potthoff, 42, 14; Brian LaBarre, 38, 12.7; Bill Reding, 27, 9; Dick Bleich, 17, 5.7; Bob Smith, 15, 5; and Jim Youngwirth, 10, 3.3, giving the Bears balance that is tough to cope with.*^ •*&. The Bears have hit 93 field goals to 70; 42 of 71 free tosses to 54 of 105; have committed 79 fouls to 55; and scored 228 points to 194, an average 76-64.7 against three foes. Muller, who came into the season with 222 career points, and Potthoff, who had scored 357 points prior to this year, have both been in double figures in each game. LaBarre has counted more than 13 twice and Reding and Bleich have each been over 10 once. B-teams at both schools have also been impressive, with Keith Christie's Algona high club 5-0 and Coach Duane Kramer's Little Bears 2-1 so far. 7th Grade Wins Algona's seventh grade basketball team, making its first appearance of the season, downed Britt, 22-13, here Monday afternoon after trailing 12-10 at halftime. Top scorer for Coach Art Olson's club was Gary Jones with eight points, followed by Kermlt Olson with six and Dean Steven, St<?ve Armstrong, Rick Nielsen and Dan Smith with two each.
