13 Records Shattered In AHS Relays Large Field In Relays I Eighteen teams competed for titles in three classes at the Bulldog Relays (third annual) here Saturday on a windy, but not cold day. Among competitors were athletes from Garrigan and Algona High, including the trio shown above. At the top, Dave McCarthy, who holds the Garrigan high jump record, easily clears 5-2 in that event. In the middle shot, Tom Black of the Bears gets nosed at the tape in one of the 100-yard dash preliminaries, while in the bottom picture, Bill Boldridge of the Bulldogs appears to be clearing 5-2 in the high jump. However, he knocked the bar off with his leg and didn't make it. A large crowd was in the stands at the high school's athletic field for the finals Saturday night. (UDM Polaroid Photos! The largest crowd in the history of the event saw 13 new records go into the books as Eagle Grove, Spirit Lake and Twin Rivers chalked up class titles in the third annual Bulldog Relays here Saturday night. Class A and class C competitors accounted for five records each and the class B contingent chalked up three. Undoubtedly the top individual event proved to be the pole vault where new marks were set in all three classes. And two class marks were also set in the 220.
