Bulldogs Second In Humboldt Sectional; 9 Gain District $ '. «. f . ' I Algona's wrestlers were edged by Humboldt in the Sectional Tournament at Humboldt Feb. 14-15. However, the Bulldogs are sending nine men to the District Meet at North Polk this weekend, while Humboldt will send eight. First and second place winners in the Sectional are shown here in photos from the Humboldt Independent. Shown above, top picture, are the champions. From left, front row, they are Ted Derscheid of Clarion, 95; Jim Taute, Humboldt, 103; Terry Daggy, Humboldt, 112; Butch Laird, Humboldt, 120; Steve Claude, Algona, 127; and Larry Fevold, Humboldt, 133. Those in the back row are, from left, Larry Taylor, Algona, 138; Don Camp, Algona, 145; Keith Abens, Humboldt, 154; Mike Studer, Clarion, 165; Bruce Bennett, Algona, 180; and Geoff Mickelson, Humboldt, heavyweight. Runners-up, who also qualify for the district tourney, are shown in the bottom picture. They are, left to right, front row, Gary Gade, Algona, 95; Gary Woodley, Clarion, 103; John Nelson, Clarion, 112; Rob Claude, Algona, 120; Ray Stockdale, Humboldt, 127; and Lance Rutledge, Algona, 133. Standing, from left, are Terry Dillinger, Humboldt, 138; Mike Roberts, Clarion, 145; Phil Bode, Algona, 154; Bill Eich, Spirit Lake, 165; Stolley, Arnolds Park, 180; and Steve Fitzpatrick, Algona, heavyweight. Just as expected, Humboldt and Algona battled right down to the wire for the Sectional Wrestling ; Tournament championship at Humboldt Wednesday and Thurs; day, with the Wildcats edging the • Bulldogs for the team title by five . points, 116-111. The balance of : the 11-team field, with the exception of third place Clarion, . which counted 85 points, was far behind.

Most of the second place winners were also from the loop, so the North Central will be very well represented in the District Meet at North Polk (Alleman) this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 23-24. Coach Champ Martin's outfit did a great job - landing a total of nine in the District field, exactly the same number that advanced a year ago when the team won the Sectional and District and wound up second in the State Meet. Last year, Algona also had four Sectional champions and five seconds — then took two District champs and three seconds to State. The two District champs, Steve Claude and Clint Young, also came through and won State »('. 1 *» •4 It is entirely possible this year's group could do just as well from bere on to the finish, Ajgona'e champions at Humt Included Steve Claude, 127, p Tiyter, 131, Don Camp, 145, 9$ Bruce Beouett, 180, All ripped through three straight oppouente tQ gain titles. Seconds were chafed up by Gade, 95, Rob Claude, 120, Lance Rutledge, 133, Phil Bode, 154, and Steve Fitzpatrick, heavyweight. So Algona is sending three seniors, three juniors, a pair of sophomores and a freshman into the District. Camp distinguished himself in the Sectional as one of the outstanding grapplers as he registered a pair of falls and a decision on the way to his title. Steve Claude got a fall and a pair of decisions, while Taylor and Bennett posted decisions all the way to the top. Four Bulldogs lost in the finals — and three came back to place second with consolation wins. Only Duane Hunt, who was out-weighed about 15 pounds all the way in the 165 Ib. division, failed in the wrestle-back. He picked up a pair of decisions, then was thrown in the finals and consolation, so finished third. Russ Bird, 103, won his first match in both the regular session and consolation, but was thrown following eacli of those wins, so also finished third. Here is the entire list of results for Algona's grapplers in the Sectional: 95 - Gade threw Cornell (Spirit Lake); thrown by Derscheid (Clarion), 3:45; consolation - de- cisioned Coffey (Emmetsburg), 10-0, and Johnson (Milf:rd),3-2, on riding time. 103 - Bird decisioned McCabe (Gilmore City-Bradgate), 11-1; thrown by Taute (Humboldt), 1:45; consolation - decisioned Eddy (Spirit Lake), 4-0; thrown by Woodley (Clarion), :30. 112 — Denny Petersen de- cisioned by Ross (Milford), 6-4. 120 - R.

Bears fall To Estherville, Dump E'burg; Si Game Next Estherville's Midgets laid claim to the mythical championship of Algona with a 56-43 victory over Garrigan's Golden Bears before a huge crowd here Saturday night. The win came exactly two weeks after a 90-60 victory over Algona High here and completed a sweep over the local aggregations. The Bears sustained only their third loss in 17 outings and have two frays left on the slate before District Tournament time. Coach Steve McCall's club will host St. Edmond of Ft. Dodge here this Friday night, then wind up their regular season when they host Eagle Grove Tuesday night, Feb. 27. Garrigan downed St. Edmond, 77-69, there Dec. 20 in the only other meeting of the clubs this season. Estherville supremacy during a six-minute stretch in the second quarter gave the Midgets their victory over the Bears. The other 26 minutes of action were all even. Garrigan led during the early going on points by Jack Muller, Dave McCarthy and Jim Walker, -5-1. Then it was nip and tuck through the remainder of the period, with each club managing to take the lead a couple of times, before the locals nabbed a 10-9 edge at the buzzer. Defensive play by both teams accounted for a number of errors and held down the scoring to a great extent. Estherville dominated the rebounding, but the Bears retaliated with a number of steals and blocked shots as neither team hit well. After two minutes of play in the second stanza, Estherville, with Craig Ross leading the way, took a 15-12 edge. At the midway point in the period, the visitors were on top, 19-14 then the roof fell in t Ross and Nelson Lee got warm as the Midgets outscored the Bears, 14-2, in the final four minutes of the first half - and Estherville had the upper hand, 33-16, when the teams retired for intermission. The last half belonged to Garrigan — but by a very narrow margin. • The 16 minutes of action featured strict'defenses — and as a result, Garrigan outscored the Estherville club, 2723, but it wasn't enough. And the Midgets refused to let the locals get a big rally underway. The shooting of Walker, Kevin O'Brien and McCarthy offset the firing of Greg Olson and Ross of the Midgets as Garrigan cut the lead to 46-30 after three quarters - and Steve Wingert, O'Brien and Muller got all the Garrigan points in the final round as another three points came off the lead. After relinquishing the battle for rebounds in the first half, the Bears came back and finished with a respectable 33-28 deficit for the game. John Winkel and Muller each gathered in six for the Bears, while McCarthy nabbed five and O'Brien four, with Lee getting 11, Ross seven and Olson six for the winners. A 10-6 edge in steals belonged to Garrigan, with Winkel getting four and Walker three - and Winkel blocked a pair of Estherville shots, also, as his floor play continued to sparkle. Muller's 11 points topped the Bears. McCarthy notched nine and O'Brien eight, while Ross (who also led the Estherville win over Algona High) got 20, Lee 15 and Olson 10 for the winners. Inaccuracy at the free throw line hindered Garrigan's chances all night. 10-Alflonci la.)
