Algona High's Bulldogs, left, will face Forest City Monday at 7:30 p. m. and Garrigan's Golden Bears, right,' will meet a challenge by Humboldt at the same time the following evening. Both clubs wound up regular season activity last weekend with identical 1&-2 records - and that's a percentage of .888 wins. The Bulldogs copped the North Central Conference trophy, shown with them, on a 13-1 mark and Garrigan, with its two CYO trophies, won the Sioux City Diocesan title. Should both teams come up with wins in District openers, they will then tangle Thursday, March 2, at 7:30 p. in,, with the winner advancing to Sub-State competition al Spencer March 4, Bulldogs in the photo at left include, front row, left to right, Rich Black, Bill Boldridge, Rog Meyer, Craig Esps, Tom Claude and Bob Farnham, and back row, left to "right, Coach Howie Stepbsason, Craig Taylor, Danny Richter, Tom Jones, Grege Betts, Brocks Laws and Rog Wildin. Bears in toe photo at right are, front row, left to right, Dave McCarthy, Joe Becker, Mike Nitthals, Don Courtney and Brian LaBarre, and in back, left to right, Jim Youngwirth, Dick Muller, Jack Muller, Bill Reding and Coach Steve McCall. Stspbsnson has a 121-4B (.716 percent) lifetime record in eight seasons at the helm of the Bulldogs, with two trips to the State Tournament; and McCall has a 42-1D (.088 percent) record in three seasons vitt the Bears. Both coaches are the winningest in the histories of the schools. (UDM Graphic-Polaroid Flash- fotos by Don Smith) Similarities between basketball teams at Algona High and Garrlgan reach beyood Identical 15-2 records as the dubs prepare lor District Tournament competition here nest week. The Bulldogs will battle Forest City's big outfit Monday at 7:30 and the Golden Bears will tangle with HumboldP s off-and-on club the following night at the same hour. IF the local teams win, they will than meet Thursday at 7:30 in the finals, with the winner slated to advance to Sub-State plEy at Spencer March 4. Winning streaks have been featured by botli local dubs, Garrigan racking up one skein of 14 straight, while Algona High has i pair of 7-game spurts. Offensive scaring averages of the dubs are nearly alike, with the Bears hitting :.,377 points in IB games for a 7E.E average and the Bulldogs counting 1,370 ior a 76.2 mark. Defensively, the Bulldogs have allowed 1,039 points, 57.B per same, and the Bears, 1.0B9, 60.5~per fray. Statistically, the teams are about as dose as they could be, indicating a real cory hassle — IF they meet Thursday. Besides that, both schools set new high single game totals, with Garrigan bitting 104 against St. John's of Bancroft and Algous hitting 101 against Swea City this season, The schools have met five times (all in tourney play) previously, with the Bulldogs holding a 3-2 edge. Three of the games have besn very close, while each has posted a runaway victory in the series. All have been very well played. The CJUDS Have met only one common foe - Estterville, Lakes Conference chanrjlon, a team thai lost only one loop fray in 14 outings. Algoaa posted i 17- poinl win and Garrigaa lost by lour-both at Estnenllle. Howl ever, when figuring on s possible meeting of the locals Thursday (and each must first win ED opener), the Eslhen-ille contests should not Influence guesses too much. Site-vise, tee Bears have the best of it — and should manage iu uui-rebouna the Bulldogs, lue public school outfit, however, is known as a team thai will steal you blind, so some of the rebounding edge can also be discounted. Dick Muller of the Bears is the top rebouader in the entire area. While Ml Reding, Brian LaBarre and Joe Becker of the Bears like to commit thievery, the Algoaa Corps, led by Craig Espe, has no peer when it comes to bounding an offense. Garrigan has four players, Reding, Dick Muller, LaBarre and B?cker, with scoring averages in double figures and Algona High has three, Tom Claude, Espe and Gregg Betts. Claude and Espe, who were first and third in loop scoring, are the most prolific scorers with 383 and 35E points, respectively, and averages of El.3 and 19.7, while Reding is 3E7, 1B.E; Muller, 291, 16,2; LaBarre, £82, 15.7; Becker, 212, 11.8; and Betts, 194, 10.B. And each club has two or three others who could turn the tide on a given night. Muller and Reding are the leading career scorers in Garrigan's history, with 873 and 781 points, respectively. Espe and Claude have climbed among the top scorers at AHS with their GB4 and 579 point totals so far. Dale Teeter, who graduated last spring, is the all-time leader locally, with 1,191 points for a career total, 592 points in a single season and an average of IB,9 through 03 games, all top marks. Yessir, both clubs will put a lot on the lint when District play opens.
