(13 & 14) Garrigan's Golden Bears seeing action twice and Algona's basketball Bulldogs once. Clarion will visit the Bulldogs here Friday night in a North Central Conference fray, while the Bears travel to Emmetsburg and a meeting with Catholic the same evening. The next night, Garrigan hosts Estherville's strong Midgets here. After this weekend, Algona High has only one game remaining, while Garrigan has two before the cross-town rivals tangle in the first round of the District Tournament here March 4. The Bulldogs, now 11-5, for the season and 8-4 in the loop, disheartened by a rugged 70-67 defeat in two overtimes at Clear Lake Friday night, downed Clarion, 63-56, there in a Jan. 5 meeting - and should get a win if the shock of the defeat to the Lions has worn off. Garrigan blasted Catholic, 8352, in a Dec. 18 fray here-and should get victory number 14 in 16 outings Friday night. The following evening, Estherville will give the locals all they want in the way of opposition. Estherville, one of the top teams in this portion of Iowa, belted Algona's Bulldogs, 90-60, here Feb. 3, displaying more all-around team speed than has been seen around here for some time. The Bears posted an easy 5134 victory over Carroll Kuemper there Saturday night. That victory was the second over Kuemper this season for the locals, who allowed the losers only 36 points in the earlier meeting. Coach Steve McCall's club has scored 1,004 points and allowed only 746 on the way to a 66.9 offensive average and 49.8 defensive mark. Big Jack Muller and Kevin O'Brien are both hitting in double figures, Muller with 277 points and an 18.5 average, and O'Brien with 144 points and a 10.3 average so far. Dave McCarthy has hit 141 points for a 9.4 mark; Jim Walker, 102, 6.8; and Steve Wingert, 91, 6.1 on offense for the locals. John Winkel, whose scoring average is only 3.3 on 43 points, has developed into a hustling rebounder and ball thief and was very instrumental in helping to fashion recent wins. Meanwhile, Coach Howie Stephenson's Bulldogs, who have been involved in more close games than most in the state, have hit 1,040 points and given up 976 for marks of 65 and 61 on offense and defense. Dale Pederson and Rog Meyer are leading the way in the scoring column, with 230 and 226 points, respectively, and 14.4 and 14.2 averages. Others sharing the scoring load are Rich Black, 147, 9.2; Tom Jones, 146, 9.1; Mike Betts, 86, 6.1; and Craig Taylor, 79, 5.6. Denny Richter, Smokey Barr and Steve Voyles, whose averages are not impressive, have also been important cogs in recent games. The Algona High wrestlers, who wound up with an 8-3 dual meet season, finishing with a trio of victories, will advance all first and second place Sectional winners to the District Tournament, which is slated for North Polk (Alleman) Feb. 23-24. First and second winners in that meet get to make the trip to the State Tournament later. Martin had no less than 23 lads participate in at least one varsity meet this season. Here's the latest on their records: Gary Gade, 10-8; Russ Bird, 4-10-1; Denny Petersen, 8-6; Darrell Miller, 3-5; Rob Claude, 8-3-2; Steve Claude, 17-4-1; Randy Riedinger, 3-3; Larry Taylor, 9-5-1; Don Camp, 19-3; Phil Bode, 12-5-1; Bruce Bennet, 15-7; Brad Farnham, 5-3-1; Cox, 1-3; Steve Fitzpatrick, 9-6-1; Ed Bennet, 2-4; Lance Hutledge, 7- 7-1; Duane Hunt, 7- 5; Mike Putney, 0-2; Al Aldrich, 2-3; Les Simpson, 1-1; Tom Laing, 0-0-1; Steve Willrett, 0-1; and Ferris Fett, 0-1. KOSSUTH COUNTY'S FAVORITE NEWSPAPER I Frosh Win At Sentral, But AHS Sophs Lose Algona High's freshman bas~ ketball team took a 54 to 32 win from the Sentral freshman cagers, there, Monday evening, but the Algona sophomores dropped a one-point decision to the Sentral reserves, 55 to 54. Coach Lyn Kueck's crew were ahead most of the way in the frosh game. Rick Nielsenturned in 17 points, folio wed by Kent Espe with 13. Gordy Ziegler, the rangy frosh center, nabbed 16 rebounds in a constantly improving floor game, and Bruce Johnson and Jim Harris grabbed 7 and 6. Sentral's reserves came from behind to win. They trailed at the half, 27 to 22, but early in the fourth quarter a defensive lapse on the part of the AHS sophs proved fatal. John Chrischilles tallied 17 points for Algona, but Dan Kenneday of Sentral was high point man for the game with 22, and Delond Jentz accounted for 13. Mark Olson bucketed 12 for Algona. Larry Rochleau of the Algona soph squad was unable to play in tills contest and his work under the boards was missed. The Sentral reserves are now 5-5 for the season. Algona sophs are 6 and 2 and~the freshmen are 4 and 5. The Algona sophs play Humboldt sophomores Friday night, in the warmup game before varsity play here. Pederson And Meyer Among Loop Leaders Two Algona High School basketball players remain in the top 10 in scoring in the North Central Conference, according tola- test statistics, released Wednesday morning. They are Dale Pederson, guard, who is eighth with 184 points and a 15.3 average, and Roger Meyer, ninth with 175 points and a 14.5 average. Clear Lake's Ken Grabinski, on his way to a loop season scoring mark, hit 37 points against Algona Friday night and now holds a commanding 29.1 average on 321 points scored. The Bulldogs currently rank third in the league standings with an 8-4 mark. They are 11-5 for the season. In conference play, the locals have a 66.3 scoring average and 62.5 defensive mark.

I DON'T ^\ L/KE TO BE TOO V CONSP/CUOUS. —-^^-w Dave Martin Of Algona Praised By ISU Coach Iowa State University recently released the following story on Dave Martin, Algona, former AHS state champion wrestler and son of Mr. and Mrs. Champ Martin. Mr. Martin is wrestling coach at Algona High. AMES, IOWA-One of several fine sophomores on the Iowa State University wrestling team is former Algona High School athlete, Dave Martin. "Dave is one of the hardest workers on the squad," said Cyclone wrestling coach Harold Nichols recently. "He also is the most receptive to coaching we have." The Iowa State wrestling team is one of the finest in the nation. They recently beat highly-rated Oklahoma, 18-13, so the Cyclones have to be considered strong challengers for the Big Eight and National titles. Martin won a total of 11 letters in four high school sports at Algona. He was an all-state honorable mention halfback in football, a state track meet qualifier in three events and a star catcher with the baseball team. But Dave's most talented skill was wrestling. He lettered every year of high school in wrestling and won the state championship at 145 pounds his junior year. Then as a senior he moved up to 154 pounds afid compUed ; aremark-c able 28-0-1 record in leading his team to the state wrestling titlej by winning his second state title.'' "Winning the team title that year was the biggest thrill of my sports career," claimed Dave recently. Dave's wrestling ability seems to have been handed down to him from his father. Leon Martin is presently the coach of the Algona High School wrestling team. The elder Mr. Martin was at one time a wrestler for Iowa State Teacher s C ollege. He narrowly missed an individual national championship at 175 pounds. He lost an overtime decision to finish second in the nation that year. After high school graduation in 1966, Dave enrolled at Iowa State and he was 4-0 as an Iowa State freshman wrestler. This year Dave has been wrestling regularly with the varsity in the 152 pound weight class. He currently owns an all-over 15-6 record. Goals?

The Iowa State coaches are very happy with the performance of Martin so far. They feel he has the material to be one of the best. "With his desire and persistence he can do nothing but improve," coach Nichols stated. "We are looking forward to his being one of our top wrestlers."
