(Photo Courtesy Fairmont Sentinel) Basketballers, Grapplers Will Be Busy This Weekend, Home And Away Another big weekend faces local high school sports squads — with no less than four events on tap, Friday through Sunday. Algona High's basketball team will be busiest, playing Friday and Saturday nights, while the wrestlers are slated for action Saturday and Garrigan's Golden Bears play in the finals of theCYOTour- nament Sunday night. Here's the schedule: Algona High hosts Humboldt Friday night and travels to Webster City for a fray Saturday (both are North Central Conference contests); the wrestlers travel to Clear Lake for the first annual Conference Tournament all day Saturday; and Garrigan rides to Sioux City Sunday evening for a meeting with Heelan. Team records to date prove all three are doing fine this season. The Golden Bears of Coach Steve McCall are 11-1 (with 10 straight victories), the basketball Bulldogs under Coach Howie Stephenson are 9-2, including a 6-2 loop mark and a string of four straight, and Coach Champ Martin's grapplers have a 6-3 dual meet mark. Garrigan has scored 837points while giving up 612- an average of 69.8-51 per game through the 12 games played to date. The Bears will have to be at their best if they are to dump Heelan for the CYO title. Heelan roared past Ft. Dodge St. Edmond, 80-44, in the other half of the first round Sunday night. Only comparison available shows that the Bears downed St. Edmond, 77-69, at Ft. Dodge Dec. 20. The Bears got to the finals with a 43«36 victory over Carroll Kuemper in a defensive struggle here Sunday night in their last outing. Leading the charges of McCall against HeeJan will be jack Mui- ler, who has canned 232 points ud carries a J9.3 average so far. He will be aided by paveMcCar* thy, U7 points, 9,8 average; Kevin O'Brien, 105, 8,6; Jim Fick- bohm, 87, 7.2; Jim Walker, 86, 7.2; and Steve Wingert, 82, 6.8. Muller has led the club in scoring nine times so far, with a high single game of 30 points, while O'Brien has led the team twice with a high of 22, Fickbohm once with a high of 18, McCarthy once with a high of 17 and Wingert once with a high of 19. Garrigan's scoring so far has ranged from the low Sunday, 43 points, to a high of 89. Stephenson's strugglers came up with a pair of come-from-behind wins in their last two outings, the most recent a 64-60 decision at Eagle Grove Friday night. In earlier meetings with Humboldt and Webster City, Dec. 8-9, the Bulldogs lost to the Wildcats, 68-62, and downed the Lynx, 59-49. The Bulldogs are tied for second in the league with Iowa Falls, both behind unbeaten Clear Lake. They have counted 719 points and given up 633 in 11 contests, an average of 65.3-57.5 per fray. The team's high game is 77 points, while the low is 59. Dale Pederson tops the scoring list with 161 points and a 14.6 average, while Rog Meyer has 154 points, 14 point average; Rich Black, 113,10.3; Tom Jones, 97, 8.8; Craig Taylor, 64, 7.1; Mike Betts, 48, 5.3; Denny Richter, 35, 3.9; and Rod Rogert, 2f>, 2.6. Pederson has led the club six nights, with a high of 26 in one game, while Meyer has headed the list four times with a high of 25; Black once with a high of 16; and Jones once with a high of 22. Jones is probably the most improved player on the club based on showings in recent games. Stephenson has a total of seven lads who have been in double figures at least once this year. Coach Champ Martin's grap^ piers have chalked up 251 points to 128 for the opposition in nine duals, an average of 27.9-14.2 per outing. According to reports, Humboldt and Eagle Grove are the favorites in the loop meet Saturday. In their last dual, the Bulldogs easily downed Iowa Falls, 30-12, there Saturday. Don Camp leads the squad in victories and points, with 15 and 53, and is tied with Bruce Bennett in number of falls with four. Camp has lost only two matches, while Bennett has a 12-5 record and 44 points. Steve Claude is next to Camp in over-all figures with a 13-3-1 t record, three falls and 47points.

KOSSUTH COUNTY'S FAVORITE NEWSPAPERII Jones fires Away Tom Jones, senior 6-5 center for the Algona Bulldogs, is not the highest-scoring member of the club, but he is one of the hardest working lads and is as responsible as anyone for the team's fine 9-2 record so far this season. Tom is shown above (white suit) as he launched a first-half field goal attempt against the Iowa Falls Cadets. Mike Ingebritson (45) of the visitors attempts to block the shot, while Paul Peglow (25) of the Cadets watches. The Bulldogs, through team effort, capped a successful comeback on their way to a 77-76 victory in one of the most thrilling games ever witnessed here. The win knotted Algona and Iowa Falls in second place in the North Central Conference with 6-2rec- ords, behind Clear Lake's unbeaten Lions.
