Teeter, Muller, Martin And Fitz Leading Local Squads meetine will !*• Ivlith J.tndl and Arlfne Wood. Thursday, December 16, 1963 AJgona, (la.) Upper Dej Moinej-9 Algona's high school athletic squads completed pre-Chrlstmas slates last weekend, but it won't be long before the action is hot and heavy again. At the Christmas break, Garrigan's Golden Bears have a 6-1 mark, Algona's basketball Bulldogs have a 5-1 record and the public high wrestlers have a 2-4 dual meet record. Coach Champ Martin's wrestlers will be the first squad to return to action after Christmas. They will travel to Osage for a big Invitational Meet Wednesday, Dec. 20, then resume their dual meet season with a home meet against Hampton Jan. 8. The Hampton dual will be a North Central Conference get-together. Meanwhile, Coach Howie Stephenson's basketball team will be gunning for another loop win (they are tied for second in the North Central Conference at 3-1) with a big trip to Clarion and and a meeting with the Cowboys, who are plenty rugged, Jan. 4. Three days later, Jan. 7, Coach Steve McCall's Golden Bears travel to Pocahontas and a second meeting with Catholic. The Bears dumped the Eagles 62-54 here Dec. 11 with a second half rally turning the trick. Two of Martin's wrestlers remain undefeated competition in six dual meets and a pair of invitationals. They are Dave Martin, 154-pounder who was the state champion last season at 145, and Tom Fitzpatrick, heavyweight, who placed second at the State Meet. Martin opened the season with a draw and has won each match since, while Fitzpatrick shows all victories to date. In duals so far, Algona has downed Estherville, 28-18, and Humboldt, 21-17, while losing to Britt, 37-12, Blue Earth, 2&-17, Clarion, 27-16, and Ft. Dodge, 26-18. The locals placed sixth in the Eagle Grove Invitational and won their own Invitational here Dec. 11. The public high basketball team, led through the first five games by high-scoring Dale Teeter, relied on more team balance in posting the season's most important win to date, 69-58, over Clear Lake here last Friday night. The loss was the first for the Lions, who by virtue of it dropped to a second place tie in the* loop with the Bulldogs. Both trail Humboldt by a half-game. Algona has scored 384 points and allowed 320 points, averaging 64 on offense and 53.3 on defense so far. Teeter, only man averaging in double figures prior to last Friday, saw his average drop from 27 per game to 24 with a 9-point total against the Lions, but Craig Espe, who hit 23, and Dave Walker, who tallied 16, both upped their averages to 10.2 per game. Dan Merryman is next at 9.5. Teeter has counted 144 points this season and now has a 743 point career total. He now needs 88 points to set a new standard here. Espe and Walker each have 61 points, Merryman 57, Tom Claude 34 and reserves Brad Kraft, Steve Waller, Tom Jones and Brocke Laws all have from two to eight points while playing little. The locals have defeated Emmetsburg, Swea City, Humboldt, Webster City and Clear Lake, with the lone loss a one- pointer to Eagle Grove. Garrigan has sandwiched two 3-game winning skeins around a lone loss to Mason City Newman for its 6 of 7 mark. The Bears have scored 474 points and given up 423 to post a 67.7 offensive mark and 60.4 defensive average. They have wins over Ft. Dodge high, Emmetsburg Catholic, St. John's, Pocahontas Catholic, St. Edmond and Don Bosco so far. Leading scorer is Dick Muller, sharp -shooting junior, who is also one of the leading rebound- ers on the club. He has 113 points and an average of 16.1 while Don Potthoff has 79, 11.3; Bill Reding, 76,10.8} Brian LaBarre, 54, 7.7; Bob Smith, 53*. 7,4 j Dick Blelch. 48, 6.8.
