Bulldogs, Bears Put 8-1 Marks On The Line Friday High school varsity athletes [from Garrigan and Algona high swept five opponents aside last weekend and have been busy since getting ready for five more en- I gagements this week. Coach Champ Martin's wrest* jlers traveled to Eagle Grove last night (Wednesday) in quest I of their fourth dual meet win of the campaign against four losses. A win over the Eagles would also give the locals a 3-1 North Central Conference record, with a loop meet at Iowa Falls this Saturday night the final one before meeting two non- conference foes preceding the I sectional Tournament Feb. 7-10. The_£rapplers belted Hampton 34-12, in their finest dual meet showing so far last Saturday night, with five men posting falls, including undefeated Dave Martin, 154-pounder who captured the state title at 145 last spring. Hampton managed to split the remaining six decisions on the card for its only points. In dual competition so far, Algona has scored 146 points to 159 for seven opponents, an average of 20.9 to 22.7 per meet. | The locals have also won their own Invitational Meet, placed third in the Osage Invitational and sixth in the Eagle Grove Invitational. Garrigan will host a tough Austin Pacelli team here Friday night, while the basketball Bulldogs travel to Eagle Grove for a loop fray the same evening, then the/Garrigan reserves will travel to Gilbertville for a game Saturday night. The Bears and Bulldogs both boast 8-1 season marks to date, with Coach Howie Stephenson's club on the crest of a six-game victory skein and Coach Steve McCalTs charges riding a five- game string. The public school club is at present second in the conference race with a 5-1 record. During its 5-game streak, Garrigan' s offensive mark has dipped to 66.1, a slide of 8.6 points per game, but the defense has chopped 10 points per game from the opposition's output and is now i a very creditable 59 per contest. \ The Bears, fresh from a i 63-30 win over St. John's of Bancroft Saturday night, have a 605-531 edge in points over opponents this season. They are led in scoring by Dick Muller, junior, who has 142 points for a 15'.8 average. He's been under 13 points only once all season - against the Johnnies last weekend when he managed only six. Meanwhile, Bill Reding has hit from 10 to 20 points in six of the last seven outings and now has 106 points and an 11.8 average. Other scoring for the Bears looks like this: Don Potthoff, ,104, 11.5; Brian LaBarre and Bob Smith, 66, 7.3; and Dick Blelch, 57, 6.3. The Bulldogs were impressive in a 69-51 victory over Spencer at the Northwest Iowa Coaches Clinic at Spencer Saturday night. Coach Stephenson's bench, which has been getting stronger every week, paid off again as Dan Merryman, regular forward, was forced to sit out the win while nursing the flu. Algona has outscored all opponents, 589-470, this season, averaging 65.4 points per game on offense and 52.2 on defense. During the 6-game string, the offensive mark has moved up 2.1 points and the defensive average has been lowered 2.8 points per game, marking the team's improvement. A win over the Eagles, only team to dump the locals so far (they did it 65-64 Nov. 27), is a must if the locals are to remain on the heels of loop-leading Clear Lake, which has a 6-1 record in conference play. The team's scoring balance is much better now than when the Bulldogs and Eagles first met. That night, Dale Teeter got a career high of 37 points, Merryman 11 and Dave Walker nine, Since then, the reserves have become an important cog in the machine. Teeter, who has hit 208 points for a 23,1 average so far, has been under 15 only once all season, against Clear Lake when he got nine. Walker and Espe have each been above 11 four of the last five times out and Merryman has scored from 10 to 16 points in his last three games, Teeter needs 23 points to set an all-time career scoring record at the local school, The balance, of the scoring for &e Bulldogs; Espe, 102, 11.3; Merryman, 88, U; Walker, 87, 9,7; Tom Claude, 34, 6,8} Steve Waller, 20, 2,9; and BUI Boldrldge, 81, 2,6, K£ct/ir#w& wee HIM 4 &ITT BAYLOR.
