450 At Garrigan High Athletic Banquet Laughs were plentiful for the huge crowd of about 450 at the first annual Garrigan Catholic High School Athletic Banquet sponsored by the Booster Club at Presentation hall in Whittemore Thursday night. Ray, Lemek, ex- Sioux City and Notre Dame football star and captain of the Fighting Irish in 1955, was featured speaker. The crowd was kept happy during, the program, which followed a beef roast dinfier, as each speaker turned in his share of tall tales. Father F. J. Brady, editon of the Globe, Catholic newspaper published at Sioux City, served as master of ceremonies. Also, appearing on the program during the evening were Jim • Geelan, St. Cecelia's Academy coach, Beanie Cooper, coach at Presentation, J. D. Ferguson, coach at St. Joe, Leon Vann, who . will serve as basketball coach at Garrigan during the next school year, Gordon Winkel, Algona attorney and president of the Booster Club, and Father Francis -Conway, Garrigan superintendent. Geelan will serve as athletic director and Cooper will be football coach at the new high school. Lemek, who is an offensive tackle at the present time with the Washington Redskins in the National Professional F o o t b a 11 League, wove several laugh- provoking stories in his talk. He told of his high school days, mentioned his college playing days at Notre Dame and delved slightly into the coaching situation there. "A good athlete 'must possess three things," said Lemek, "a fighting heart, a strong desire and he must always strive to reach perfection/' Father Conway was Lemek's basketball coach when the lattei was >a sophomore at Sioux City and was able to furnish a certain amount of previously unknown background material on the ex-Irish star. Athletic awards were announced by Coaches Geelan, Cooper and,Ferguson. Cooper was head coach and Geelan assistant coach of Garrigan's first football last fall. They presented large majof "G" awards to the following boys: Joe Smith, Mark Seeley, Lloyd Schilmoeller, John Murphy, Bob Lichter, Phil Kinsey, Bill Higgins, Robert Gillingham, Oscar Froehlich, Jim Erpclding, Dean Dodds and Ronald Barton of St. Cecelia's; Bob Zeimet, Maurice Becker and David Hammer of St. Joe; and Paul Elbert, Ray Elbert, John Loebach, Jack McDonnell, ,.Bob Reed and Bill Reed of.;Bre- sentation.
