Algona Invitational Meet, Pair Of Basketball Games Here This Weekend Except for Coach Champ Martin's wrestlers, high school athletes here will have an easier weekend of activity Friday and Saturday than a week ago. Only four events crowd the two days, compared to five last weekend. The wrestlers, undefeated in three dual meets so far, will travel to Humboldt for a North Central Conference meet with the rugged Wildcats - who will be out to cut the string. The Wildcats are led by Geoff Mickelson, All- State footballer who is a fine heavyweight. For no known reason, except that the schedules handed out prior to the season may have been faulty, the UDM stated Tuesday that the Bulldogs and Wildcats would meet that night. Please forgive the error. It's tomorrow night, instead, so there was probably a larger crowd at the Christmas concert at the school Tuesday. After the Humboldt dual, the locals will host the annual Algona Invitational all day Saturday, with the final slated Saturday evening. For the true fans, Saturday should prove a must. Meanwhile, basketballers from Algona High and Garrigan will see action once each night. The Bulldogs host Hampton and will be after their fifth win in six outings, while the Golden Bears will host Pocahontas Catholic the following evening, putting their 2-1 record on the line. The Bears also see action Monday, facing Emmetsburg Catholic here. Coach Champ Martin's grapplers, after a 25-16 victory over Clarion here last weekend, are led by Phil Bode, 165, who is now 6-0 for the season. Other records for the regulars include: Gary Gade, 95, 3-2; Russ Bird, 103, 1-3; Denny Petersen, 112, 3-3; Darrell Miller, 120, 3-1; Rob Claude, 127, 1-0-1; Steve Claude, 133, 5-1; Randy Rledlnger, 145, 2-2; Larry Taylor, 138, 2-0; Don Camp, 154, 5-1; Bruce Bennett, 180, 4-2; Brad Farnham, heavyweight, 4-0-1; and Steve Fitzpatrick, 180 and heavyweight, 2-3. Farnham, who is out of action while recuperating from an appendectomy, is the leader in falls with three, while Bennett and Steve Claude each have a pair. The team has outscored three opponents, 98-34, so far. Coach Howie Stephenson's basketball Bulldogs bounced back from their first defeat of the season, 68-62, at the hands of Humboldt Friday night to post an imposing 59-49 win over Webster City here the following night. The Bulldogs, led to the latest win by senior guard Dale Pederson, who canned 24 points, now have three men in double figures for the season. Rog Meyer tops the club with 81 points and a 16.2 average, then come Pederson, 66, 13.2, and Rick Black, 57, 11.4. Others who have seen action are Craig Taylor, 26, 8.7; Denny Richter, 27, 5.4; Tom Jones, 23, 4.6; Mike Belts, 24, 4.8; RodRo- gert, 14, 3.5; Steve Voyles, two, 1; and Rog Barr, two, .4. Algona holds a 3 22-274 margin in total points over three opponents, for a 64.4 offensive and 54.8 defensive mark. Coach Steve McCall's Garrigan hustlers pounded LeMars Gehlen, 76-34, Saturday night after falling to Mason City Newman, 62-48, a night earlier. Big Jack Muller, who counted 30 points Saturday now has a 67 point total and a 22.3 average. Dave McCarthy is next at 31, 10.3; then come Kevin O'Brien, 27, 9; Mike Elbert, 22, 7.3; Jim Walker, 14, 4.7; John Winkel, 11, 3.7; Jim Fickbohm, 10, 3.3; Tom Black, 4, 2; Kollasch, 3, 1.5; and Kajewski and McGuire, with four and two, respectively in one game. Garrigan has chalked up 200 points, while allowing 150 in three games, for an average offensively of 66.7 and a 50 point defensive mark. Corwith-Wesley And Titonka Split BB Wins Titonka and Corwith-Wesley split a pair of non-conference basketball games Saturday night. The Titonka boys were defeated by Corwith-Wesley, 57-43, but the Titonka girls won their contest by edging Corwith-Wesley, 53.49. Judy Akkerman, Titonka's high-scoring forward, netted 28 points, Sandy Hoover contributed 15 and Cheryl Cunningham added 10. Sherry Oxley was high for the visitors with 24 points. Steve Heyer with 15 points, was the onjy player for the Titonka boys in double figures. Barry Krebs paced Cprwith- Wesley with 18 points. SPORTS 12-Algona (la.)

Algonan Helps College Team Build String A Garrigan High School graduate, Ed Reilly, son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Reilly, Algona, has been helping write a few headlines for the Mount St. Paul College basketball team at Waukesha, Wise, this season. The team won at least its first four contests- and at least three times young Reilly proved to be the hero, canning important points at the right time to bring victory. For instance, against Madison Tech, Reilly hit a pair ofbaskets and two free throws in the last minute of play as his team won, 88-80. He got 23 points that night. Against Milwaukee Concordia, Mount St. Paul won, 109104, in an overtime, with Reilly hitting a free throw to knot the count in regulation time, then counting seven of his team's 15 points during the overtime. He counted a total of 17 points. Playing against the University of Wisconsin- Waukesha, he hit three free throws in the final 28 seconds as his team won, 8276. Ed bloomed into a basketball player at college. A senior, he did not play basketball in high school.
