10-Algorta la.) Uppftr D« Moin«« Thursday, Nov. 9, 1967 Martin Greets 11 Lettermen Coach Champ Martin, who has a habit of turning out top-flight wrestling teams, greeted his umpteenth varsity squad here Monday afternoon and held an opening workout. The team, which has 11 letter winners, shown above, is readying for the season opener against Britt here Nov. 22. A total of 11 dual meets are on the slate. Lettermen shown are, front row, left to right, Tom Laing, Jerry Simpson, Steve Claude, Denny Petersen, Ed Bennett and Paul Watkins. In back, left to right, Coach Martin, Don Camp, Bruce Bennett, Brad Farnham, Randy Riedinger and Phil Bode. Claude is the top returnee. He posted a 20-9 record last year, topped off with an amazing climb to Sectional, District and State championships. The Martin-men finished second in the State Meet. Martin-coached Algona teams have finished second, third, second,first and second in the last five State Tournaments. Laing was 2-6; Simpson 1-6; Petersen 17-9-1; Ed Bennett 4-8; Watkins 2-3; Camp 20-5; Bruce Bennett 17-9-1; Farnham 13-10-2; Riedinger 19-5-2; and Bode 17-7-1 last year. Camp was second in the Sectional and District; Petersen won the Sectional; Riedinger, Sectional champ and second in the District; Bruce Bennett, Sectional champ and second in the District; and Farnham and Bode each placed second in the Sectional. Listed among squad members this season are several others who saw limited duty a year ago- but for the most part untried in the type of competition faced by the varsity. The varsity won nine, lost two and had one draw in dual meets during the 1966-67 season and prospects, if all of the lettermen produce, this year are brighter than in some of Martin's earlier years. Many North Central Conference meets are slated. (UDM Flashfoto by Don Smith) Navy Brothers From This Area Meet, V-Nam Fireman Terry J.Christensen, son of Mrs. M. Elaine Christensen of \Vhittemore, married and husband of the former Donna Marie King of Algona, recently reported for duty .abroad the USS Benewah (APB35), presently operating in the Mekong River delta of South Vietnam. Terry reports to the Benewah after having recently completed recruit training at Great Lakes, fll. to serve with his older brother, John, husband of the former Lorna Jean Ewoldt of Whittemore. John, who was recently promoted to Personnelman First Class, welcomed his brother with open arms, after having served in Vietnam the past nine months, a face from home was something to look forward to, and a reunion \vas in store for both John and Terry. John will be completing his tour of duty in Vietnam in early January and has received orders to the USS Essex (CVS-9) operating out of Quonset Point, Rhode Island. Prior to reporting to the Essex for duty, John will spend a 30-day leave with his wife and two children in the Whittemore-Algona area to visit relatives, and will then be leaving for the New England states to make their new home.
