Algona Wrestler On S.D.U. Team 10-Algona la.) Upper De* Moine* Thursday, Feb. 8, 1968 SPORTS BROOKINGS, S.D. - These five lettermen are expected to pace the Jackrabbit wrestling squad down the "home stretch" as the South Dakota State University mat team prepares for tourney action. Left to right are, Jon McNitt, Sioux Falls, 6-2-1 over-all record, 177-pounder currently on the questionable starting list after injuring a knee last week; Jim Koch, Milbank, 10-4-0, 160-pounder; Jerry Smith, Sioux Falls, 14-0-0, 130-pounder; Stan Lambert, Worthington, Minn., 3-4-1, 145- pounder; and Mike Kain, Algona, la., 1-3-1, 167-177 pounder. AHS, GHS Hit Road This Weekend As Winter Sports Slate Narrows Down The long winter sports trail that got its start last November is rapidly approaching its end and fans in this area who want to get a look at their favorites before tourney action gets underway (for AHS and GHS that's March 4) had better be on hand during the next three weeks or they'll be out of luck. Slim fare is on tap here this weekend as Coach Champ Martin's Algona High wrestlers finished their regular slate of dual meets last night (Wednesday) at Clear Lake and neither of the local basketball teams is at home. Both play out of town, the Algona Bulldogs at Clear Lake Friday night and Garrigan's Golden Bears at Carroll Kuemper the following evening. Coach HowieStephenson's basketball Bulldogs shared a pair of games last weekend, downing Hampton, 68-59, in a North Central Conference fray, then got . bopped by a fine Estherville team, 90-60, the following night. The locals, now 11-4 for the season, lost to Clear Lake, 76-62, here Dec. 22 and will try to give the Lions their first loop defeat of the year. The Lions, who won their first 13 games without a loss, fell to a not highly-regarded Garner-Hayfield team, 61-51, Saturday night and will probably have blood in their eyes Friday. The Bulldogs will throw everything they have at the Lions. Algona has a 64.9 offensive average and 60.4 defensive mark with a 973-906 edge in points through 15 games. . Leading scorer right now is Dale Pederson with 214 points and a 14.3 average, while Rog Meyer is right behind at 211 and 14.1. Rich Black has dipped below the 10-point mark and is now 9.3 with 140 points, while Tom Jones has scored 133 points for an 8.9 average. Mike Betts, who canned 25 points in two outings during the weekend, upped his average to 6.5 on 84points. Craig Taylor has counted 73 points and has a 5.6 average. Pederson has topped the team in scoring (or shared with a teammate) eight times this year, Meyer six and Jones and Black two each. Coach Steve McCall's Bears, one of the real surprising clubs in the entire area, are now 12-2 after a 62-44 victory over Mason City Newman Friday night. They met and defeated Kuemper, 4336, in the first round of the recent CYO Tournament here Jan. 21. And the Bears will be out to make it two straight over the Carroll entry. The Bears have hammered in 953 points and given up only 712 to date this season, giving them an offensive mark of 68.2 and a 50.9 defensive average. Defense has been the byword this season— and it has paid off with several wins that wouldn't have come otherwise. Garrigan scoring honors haven't been passed around much this season, with big Jack Muller contributing an average of 18.7 points per fray. He's counted 262 points. His chief helpers have been Kevin O'Brien, 130, 10; Dave McCarthy, 139, 9.9; Jim Walker, 94, 6.7; and Steve Wingert, 88, 6.3; as Garrigan chalked up one string of ten straight victories earlier in the season. Muller has led the scoring no less than 10 times, while O'Brien and McCarthy have been the leaders twice each and Wingert and John Winkel one time apiece. Martin's grapplers went into the meeting with Clear Lake last night with a 7-3 dual meet record, which included the last two in a row. The Bulldogs had outscored the opposition in duals, 271-145, for a 27.1-14.5 average score per meet. Don Camp leads two categories of the statistics, with his 18 wins tops as well as 62 points scored. He has lost just three times and has four falls. Bruce Bennett leads in falls so far with five. He has a 14-7 record and has counted 52 points, placing him third in that column behind Steve Claude, who.has a 16-4-1 record, three falls and 56 points. As a team, including invita- tionals and duals, the Bulldogs have won 136 matches, lost 91 and posted eight draws. Algona holds a 30-17 margin in falls and has counted 484 points in all meets. Other individual marks include: Gary Gade, 9-8 record, 27 points; Russ Bird, 4-9-1, 16; Darrell Miller, 3-5, 9; Rob Claude, 8-3-1, 32; LarryTaylor, 8-5-1,30; Phil Bode, 12-5-1,44; Brad Farnham, 5-3-1, 23; Steve Fitzpatrick, 9-6, 33; Ed Bennett, 1-4, 3; Lance Rutledge, 76-1, 23; and Duane Hunt, 7-4, 21. Algona High's basketball team has three regularly scheduled games remaining, while Garrigan has five. Muller Named Prep Football All-American Jack Muller, outstanding Garrigan High fullback and tackle last fall as the Bears compiled a 5-3 record, was named a Prep All- America Football Player by Coach and Athlete magazine and Royal Crown Cola this week. At fullback on offense, Muller, a 6-4, 215 Ib. senior, gained 884 yards in 175 carries for a 5.1 average per try. His yardage amounted to more than half of the total gained by the Bears during the season. On defense, he was a rugged tackier who teamed with lads like Dave McCarthy to help contain the offensive plays by the opposition during the season. He also managed to snare 11 passes for another 173 yards on offense as Coach Beanie Cooper used Muller as a threat at all times. Bill Reding, Garrigan quarterback in 1966, received the same honor a year ago and is a freshman at Iowa State University where he played some as quarterback last fall. Muller's college plans are indefinite. Swea City Grid Star Gets An I.S.U. Tender Tom Elliott, Ail-American gridder from Estherville Junior College and a Swea City youth, has signed a Big Eight letter of intent with Iowa State. Elliott, at Estherville, averaged 15.3 yards a carry last fall and caught 34 passes for 995 yards. He returned 5 punts for 235 yards, and four kickoffs for 48 yards. He scored 21 touchdowns as a sophomore and six as a freshman. The son of Mr. and Mrs. John Elliott of Swea City, Tom will major in industrial administration at Iowa State. Elliott, who was coached in high school by Wayne Baker, lettered in football, basketball, baseball and track. He had times of :09.9 in the 100 as a prep. Elliott played split end and flanker on offense and halfback on defense at Estherville. Soph Cagers Get Revenge On Clear Lake The results were reversed here Monday evening, when the Clear Lake freshman and sophomore teams invaded Algona high for a return basketball duo. At Clear Lake, several weeks ago, the Algona freshmen won in an overtime. Monday evening here they lost in a close one, 36 to 32. The sophomores, who lost their only game of the season at Clear Lake, reversed the verdict here Monday, annexing a 54 to 46 win, in their best game oftheseason- and they did it without the services of Gary Hagen who is out for the season after an appendectomy. Part of the sophomore zip was a "win it for Gary" effort, and it was successful. The sophomore season record is now 6 and 1. John Chrischilles led the soph scoring with 17, followed by Larry Rochleau with 10, who also turned in a stalwart rebounding game. Bob Zinnell came into his own with nine points, and accounted for two quick baskets JUDGE THE GEHL MIX-ALL ON YOUR FARM!

DEHL JOE BRADLEY EQUIPMENT late in the game when it seemed as though Clear Lake might overtake the Bullpup lead, which they held all the way. Jack Waller accounted for 8 points and Mark Olson 4, and both guards triggered a fast-moving attack that kept the Lakers off balance until late in the contest. Algona led at the half, 29 to 19. Other sophs seeing action were Lynch, Shultz, Lauck, Wheeler, Rogert and Pederson. The freshmen led much of the way during the last half. Leading scorers were Rick Nielsen, 13 points; and Bruce Johnson with eight, while Gordon Zeigler, Kent Espe and Jim Harris led the re- bounders. Espe also came up with several steals. The locals trailed at the quarter, 10-5, then led at the half, 13-12, and end of the third period, 22-20. Theclubnow has a 3-5 record. Cliff Hanger For Sentral Boys, 74-11 Sentral High's two basketball teams rang up a pair of wins, Tuesday night at Ledyard. The Sentral bnys won a thriller, 74-71, and the girls had a little easier time, winning 87-51. Sentral went into the second half with a 43-38 lead, but Ledyard erased that in the third quarter and took a 56-55 lead. Coach Bert Hanson, biting his nails on the Sentral bench, had been forced to take out Ken Marlow after the first quarter, when Marlow had collected four personals. He put him back in for the final quarter, and Marlow's bench rest did him no harm. He canned 15 of his 19- point total for the night in the final stanza, including five straight free throws which sewed up the game for Sentral. Other two-figures scorers for Sentral were Bob Briley with 17, and Howard Mueller and Jim Geitzenauer with 14 each. Tom Nauman and Ray Govern led their Ledyard team with 15 each, and Bill Johnson added 14 and Wayne Logemann 12. In the girls' game Betty Wehr- span of Sentral tallied 36 points, while Marlene Johnson of Ledyard netted 27. For the Sentral boys it's now a 13-3 record, and for the girls, 16-3. Titonka is the next Sentral foe, at Sentral. The girls play the Indians next Tuesday night, and the boys on Friday night. Swea Trojans Swamp East Chain, 106-86 Swea City got potent scoring from all five of its starters and ripped East Chain, Minn., 10686 in a home basketball game Tuesday night. The Trojans upped their season record to 9-8 behind center Bill Lofstrom's 39 points, while Randy Newlin counted 18, Mike Johnson 16, Jeff Newlin 14 and Ed Berg 13. Swea City led at the half 46-40, and extended their lead with red-hot shooting in the final quarter. Next game for the Trojans is at Thompson Friday night in State Line Conference action. Natural Gas Slated For Burt This Summer Plans for bringing natural gas service to Burt were outlined at Monday night's town council meeting. North Central Public Services Company representatives from Algona told councilmen gas lines would be laid late this spring or early summer. In other action, councilmen accepted a suggestion from Fire Chief Walter Seward that certain water lines be extended and tied into main lines to provide more satisfactory water service and to assure adequate water supplies in case of fire. The council also agreed to leave city street lights on until dawn, instead of having them turned off at midnight. A beer permit was issued to Don's Place.
