Basketball teams from each school play each night and the public high wrestlers take the mat in a dual meet Friday. So, all in all, fans are going to have to decide ahead of time just which events they will see. All three squads have opened with remarkable success. The Algona High baskeball team is 3-0, the wrestlers are 2-0 and Garrigan posted a win in its opener last Saturday, so none of the squads has tasted defeat to date. Here's the slate: Friday-Garrigan at Mason City Newman, basketball; Algona at Humboldt, basketball; and Clarion at Algona, wrestling; and Saturday- Garrigan at LeMars Gehlen, basketball; and Webster City at Algona, basketball. All of the public high events are North Central Conference affairs. The wrestlers followed up dual meet wins over Britt, 36-5, and Blue Earth, 37-13, with a tie for second in the always-tough Eagle Grove Invitational last Saturday. Two men, Phil Bode (154) and Brad Farnham (hwt.), copped individual crowns and came through the tourney unblemished for the season. Bode is now 5-0 and Farnham 'is 4-0-1. Records of other varsity grapplers include Gary Gade (95) 3-2, Russ Bird (103) 1-2, Denny Petersen (112) 2-3, Darrell Miller (120) 2-1, Rob Claude (127) 1-0, Steve Claude (127) 4-1, Randy Riedinger (133) 2-1, Larry Taylor (145) 1-0, Don Camp (145) 4-1, Bruce Bennett (165) 4-1, Bob Cox (138) 1-3, and Steve Fltzpatrick (180) 1-3. Coach Champ Martin's club has won 36 matches (11 by falls), lost 18 (6 by falls) and posted one draw. The Bulldog basketball club, under Coach Howie Stephenson, got past Emmetsburg, 63-49, Swea City, 67-46, and Eagle Grove, 71-62, in the first loop fray last Friday. After those three struggles, the locals are averaging 67 points per game on offense, while giving up an average of 52.3 points each contest. Top scorer is Rog Meyer, senior forward, who has 56 points and an 18.3 average, while Rich Black has canned 38 points for a 12.7 mark and Dale Pedersonhas hit 28 points for a 9.3 average. The latter two are senior guards.

Upper Des Moines Thursday, Dee. 7, 1967 25 Points A.H.S. Sophs In 52-41 Win Over Em'burg Algona High's sophomore basketball team downed visiting Emmetsburg sophs here Monday night, 52 to 41, but the freshmen lost to the young E-Hawks 41 to 39 on a basket tossed from near the center of the court in the final second. The freshman game went into an overtime, after it was 34 all at the end of regulation time. In the sophomore contest the count was close all the way, with Algona trailing at the half, 19-18, and at the third quarter they still were behind, 37 to 34. Rog Meyer, senior forward on the Algona High School basketball team, had the greatest night of his career here Friday as he led the Bulldogs to a thrilling (and rough), 71-62, victory over Eagle Grove in the opening North Central Conference game of the season. Meyer, who is shown plunking a free throw in the photo above, upped his point total in three games (all victories) to 56 and an 18.7 point average per game, with a 25-point night against the Eagles. He also led the club in rebounds and steals in the torrid fray, hit 9 of 12 free throws and has managed 26 out of 32 so far this season. He will undoubtedly be the target of Humboldt's defensive efforts when the two clubs collide there this Friday night. (Dave Riley Photo) John Chrischilles ran wild in the final quarter for the locals, with- A-barrage -of baskets Mid free ihrows, "winding up with £6 points, while the Bulldog soph defense stingily gave up only four points in the final quarter, and helped to nail down the' second win of the soph season. The teams play Twin Rivers here next Monday night. Jr. High Results The Algona Celtics downed St. Benedict, 47-13, St. Joe dumped Whittemore, 29-21, Algona Warriors defeated Humboldt, 27-16, and Algona Royals got past Wesley, 38-27, in Garrigan junior high basketball games here Saturday.

GHS In District BB Tourney Pairings for the Boys'District Basketball Tournament at Garrigan Fleldhouse here March 4-5-7 were released this week. Local fans will get to see both of their favorites In action the first night. That's when Algona High and Garrigan square off with the opening whistle due to sound at 7:30 p.m. March 4. Release of the date this early in the season will not dim the enthusiasm of the fans Intheleast- in fact, some are probably already making plans to stand In line for tickets. The next evening, same time, Forest City and Humboldt will tangle - and winners of the Monday-Tuesday games (AHS-GHS, Forest City-Humboldt) will meet for the title Thursday, March 7, at 7:30. The winner advances to Sub-State action. And, that winner won't have to wait long to see further action. The Sub-State will open Saturday, i-March 9, at Spencer, with the Garrigan winner meeting the • Spencer District winner at 7:30. When Beanie Cooper, athletic director at Garrigan, gave the Upper Des Moines all the above information, he was then asked about his school's track and baseball schedules. While the basketball tournament info is out early- fans will have to wait for the other two slates.

The Ten Big Games of last Saturday resulted in one perfect entry, that coming from Patricia Walker, 602 N. Jones St., Algona, and thus she wins the first place money for last Saturday. Four entries had nine games out of ten correct, and the guesses on high and low game totals decided the final placings. J. C. Everds of Algona took second, and Richard Dugan of Box 32, Elwood, la., took third. Others with nine games correct were Patricia Far relief Whittemore and Don Sindelar of Algona. High game total was 58, and low game was 10. Honorable mention with eight games correct went to Louis Reimers, So. Milwaukee, Wise.; Dale Wilcoxson, Fremont, Nebr.; Mrs. Ann Patterson, Buffalo Center; Mary Ann Kisch, Joe Arndorfer, Barry Walker, and Al Slobe, all of Algona; Robert Lovstad of Burt, and Mrs. Arthur Klein, Sexton. Sort of a shame to leave anyone on the Mourner's Bench for a whole year, but some entries had only four winners out of ten. They were Johnny Mueller, Fenton; Garland Bradley, Jim Bradford, Al Granzow and Mary Moe, all of Algona. Hundreds and hundreds of entries were received during the regular football season, and we hope you all had fun. In some homes It became sort of a family contest, and rivalry was keen.
