Members of the squad, shown in the Sentral School photo above, are. left to rieht. Bill Duncan. Gary Laabs, Dan Kennedy, Jerry Nerem, Ken Marlow, Howard Mueller, Delon Jentz, Bob Bierle, Jim Geitzenauer, Bruce Gerhart, Mark Voigt and Owen Kerber. Both of Sentral's defeats so far this season have been at the hands of Thompson's improved club, one less by one point, the other by 20. Three Basketball Games, Wrestling Meet On Tap For Local Sports Fans There'll be no easing of activity for high school athletic squads in this area during the coming weekend. For Algona fans, there are no less than four events slated in two nights, Friday and Saturday. Friday night will find the Algona High wrestlers under ' Coach Champ Martin, hosting Osage in the final home dual meet of the current season; while Garrigan's Golden Bears, who barely missed winning their second straight CYO class AA title Sunday, will be at home for a basketball session with Mason City Newman; and Algona's basketball Bulldogs hit the road for a North Central Conference fray at Hampton. The following night, Algona will host Estherville's fine basketball team in an annual non-conference fray. Coach Steve McCall's Bears will undoubtedly be on the war path against Newman. The Knights downed the locals, 6248, in the second game of the year, Dec. 8, at Mason City and Garrigan proceeded to capture its next 10 before falling to Sioux City Heelan, 56-54, in the overtime CYO finals at Sioux City Sunday night. So the Bears will be putting an 11-2 mark on the line against the Newman crew. They have a 68.5 offensive average and 51.4 defensive mark so far, having scored 891 points and given up 688. Jack Muller, who for the first time tills season was stopped short of double figures by Heelan, has counted 241 points and is averaging 18.5 per game. Next to him are Dave McCarthy, 129, 9.9; and Kevin O'Brien, 116, 9.7. Then come Jim Fickbohm, 93, 7.1; Jim Walker, 88, 6.7; Steve Wingert, 82, 6.3; John Winkel, 41, 3.7; and Mike Elbert, 40, 3.6. The Bears were cold in their loss to Newman in the first meeting — and you can bet your bottom dollar they'll be out to burn the nets off the hoops Friday. Algona High dumped Hampton, 72-51, in the first meeting of the teams here Dec. 15- and will be out for a repeat over a club that at present has a 1-9 record in the loop, Coach Howie Stephenson, however, is trying to convince his squad members that it is possible to go to sleep against the wrong club on a given night and .bingo - you're beat! And U»« drive to Hampton is a long one, Algona shared two games last weekend, downing Humboldt, 6801, here and dropping a 63.58 decision at Webster City, incidentally, the loss to the Lynx W»8 tUe first to Webster City 1ft bwketteil |or six years, and it iBd«4 », 5-game winning streak wh.o now are 7-3 0»3 over-all. Uuvo a 05 SPORTS scoring average and a 58.2 defensive mark. They have scored 845 points and given up 757. Top scorer right now (and this is a dandy race) is Dale Pederson with 187 points and a 14.4 average, with Rog Meyer almost as close as a" quarter to 12 with 186 and a 14.3 average. Next in line are Tom Jones, 125, 9.7; Rich Black, 122, 9.4; Craig Taylor, 72, 6.5; and Mike Betts, 59, 5.4. And, if the Bulldogs are up for Hampton, they'll have to be higher the next night when rugged Estherville shows up. The Midgets have lost only three games, including a pair of close ones to vaunted (and undefeated) Storm Lake, and one to Sibley, another top-rated club. Meanwhile, the Martinmen, assured of a better-than .500 dual meet finish, will try to frost the cake with a victory over Osage, then climax the year with a win over Clear Lake there five nights later. The club has a 6-3 record - and those three losses have come by the slim total of only seven points. All in all, it's a fine mark. The locals did well in the conference meet at Clear Lake Saturday, finishing right behind the first and second clubs, Eagle Grove and Humboldt. And they did it with only one individual champion, Steve Claude, at 127. Martin had four men who lost in finales and finished second. They were Rob Claude, Don Camp, Phil Bods and Steve Fitzpatrick at 120, 145, 154 and 180, respectively, while Lance Rutledge, 133, and Larry Taylor, 138, wound up third with wins in consolation wind-ups. Champ has a number of lads that can't finish under .500 when the dual meet season ends. The squad will then ready itself for Sectional, District and State Tournament activity. Sentral Makes It 12 And 2 With Rake Win Sentral high boys downed Rake Tuesday night on the Sentral court, 85 to 69. Coach Bert Hansen's team led all the way, taking a 27-16 lead in the first quarter, and going into the second half, 54 to 26. Reserves finished out the last quarter for Sentral. Five Sentral players were in double figures in the game which now gives Sentral a 12 and 2 record. Bob Bierle accounted for 25 points, and was high point man for the game. Howard Mueller canned 12, Ken Marlow 17, Jim Geitzenauer 17 and Owen Kerber 14. Haugen of Rake led his team's scoring with 23. The Sentral "B" team lost a close one to the Rake B quint, 34 to 32. Sentral takes on Lakota, there, Friday night, and a tough game is the prospect. LuVerne Boys And Girls Each Win Tuesday LuVerne racked up a pair of wins over Boone Valley Tuesday night, the girls winning the opener, 54-44, while the boys took the finale, 81-68. The win by the boys was their 12th in 14 outings.

Vicky Klassie was high for the losers with 16. It was LuVerne all the way in the boys' game, too, as the Lions held the upper hand at the quarter breaks, 21-16, 45-27 and 6245, with Duane Will leading the winners with 27 points, while Don Bristow counted 18, Doug Nelson 17 and Lee Schipull 10.
