(Sentral Photo) Sentral, Twin Rivers Cop Sectional Titles Sentral and Twin Rivers claimed championships as five clubs from this area won their way into Girls' District Basketball Tournament competition with victories (or losses in finals) Thursday night at two sites in this vicinity. Sentral annexed the crown in its own meet with an easy 67-42 victory over Ringsted, while Twin Rivers kicked over the dope bucket and notched an 84-80 overtime win at the expense of previously-unbeaten Woden-Crystal Lake at Bode. All four clubs advanced to District play as did Lakota, 59-52 winner over Titonka in the consolation fray at Bode. Sentral and Twin Rivers will see action in District play Mar. 1. Woden - Crystal Lake got dumped by Rockwell City, 8675, and Stratford edged Lakota, 58-55, at Eagle Grove, and Ayrshire bested Manson, 70-65, and Rolfe barely edged Ringsted, 62- 61, at Rolfe, in openers Saturday evening. Sentral will tangle with Ayrshire at Rolfe at 6:30 this Friday and Twin Rivers is slated to meet Stratford at the same hour, same day at Ft. Dodge. Finals and consolation games are set at both sites the following evening, Mar. 2, with District winners advancing to the State Tournament. With Cindy Lockwood scoring 34 points, the Sentral Satellites walked off with the Iowa Girls' Sectional title Thursday night defeating the Ringsted Danes, 67-42. In the consolation game, Ayrshire rolled past Havelock- Plover, 69-44. Both Sentral and Ringsted started slowly in the first quarter and the Satellites gained a 25-17 halftime lead before breaking the game open in the second halfput- scoring Ringsted 42-25. Cindy Glasnapp paced Ringsted with 20 points. State Line rivals Ringsted and Sentral advanced into the Sectional finals Tuesday. Ringsted got 18 points from Cindy Glasnapp to defeat Havelock- Polver, 41-40. Diana Enockson had 22 for the losers. Sentral had an easier time, beating Ayrshire 89-65, after holding a 51-24 halftime lead. Betty Wehrspan scored 36 and Cindy Lockwood, 32, for the winners. Connie Loomis tallied 30 for Ayrshire, Peggy Kassel had 22. The Twin Rivers Pirates up- set tenth ranked Woden-Crystal Lake 84-80 in ovei-time in the finals of the Bode Girls' Basketball Sectional Thursday evening after trailing most of the game. The Pirates, with an all underclassmen starting lineup, tied the score at 68 all with two minutes left to set up a see-saw battle that saw Woden-Crystal Lake send the game into overtime with four seconds left. Shirley Steffen, who hit a game high of 48 points for .the Tiger- ettes knotted the score 74 all at the end of regulation time with a close set shot. In overtime, Twin Rivers balanced scoring and defense proved to be the key as the Pirates continued to hit from outside to outscore the Tigerettes 8-4. High scorer for Twin Rivers was Connie Christensen with 43 points on 16 field goals and 11 of 13 free throws. Susie Cran added 23 more while Suzie Christensen was credited with 18 for Twin Rivers. Woden-Crystal Lake survived a cold first half and Twin Rivers had an easy time in girls'section- al semi-final games here Tuesday. Woden-Crystal Lake led by only 20-15 at halftime but came on strong in the fourth quarter to beat Titonka, 64-38. Linda Hanna was high for Woden-Crystal Lake (25-0) with 23, Shirley Steffen had 19 and Cathy Kirschbaum 22. Judy Akkerman had 18 and Cheryl Cunningham 17 for Titonka. Twin Rivers advanced into the finals with a 76-44 win over Lakota. Susie Cran had 37 for the winners and Connie Christianson, 24. Joyce Leonard had 28 for Lakota.

Algona Wrestlers Win District Title I Champions, Three Others In State Meet Algona's wrestling Bulldogs annexed a pair of individual crowns and three seconds, advancing five of nine entries to the State Meet as they copped the District Tournament at North Polk (Alleman) Friday and Satur- .day. Coach Champ Martin's club turned the tables ontheHumboldt Wildcats, who annexed the Sectional crown from the locals a week earlier by five team points. The Bulldogs topped the 26-man field with 64 points, followed by Humboldt with 60, West Marshall, 59, and Clarion, 43, as 13 of the 22 men advancing to the State Meet at Waterloo's McElroy Auditorium this Friday and Saturday are from the North Central Conference. Algona will send five, Humboldt and Clarion four each to the State. Individual titles were annexed by Don Camp and Bruce Bennett. Camp, 145, won three straight matches by decision, while Bennett, 180, posted a fall and a pair of decisions. They ran their season records to 25-3 and 21-7, respectively. Algona had seven men in final round matches Saturday evening. Five lost and three, Gary Gade, 95, Steve Claude, 127 (a state title winner last year), and Larry Taylor, 138, won consolation finals to pick up seconds. Phil Bode, 154, and Steve Fitzpatrick, heavyweight, each lost in the consolation wind-up and placed third. Only two of the original lads who won their way to the District failed to get a shot at a high finish. They were Rob Claude, 120, and Lance Rutledge, 133. They lost by the skin of their teeth in openers and didn't get a chance to wrestle back as their conquerors were defeated the second time out. It was a tough District (as usual) and Steve Claude's match scores were indicative of that closeness. He posted a win by one point, lost in the finals by one and won his other two by two each. Bode and Fitzpatrick lost to Humboldt's best in the finals of their weights and couldn't muster enough strength for comeback wins. Fitzpatrick's opponent in the consolation finals out-weighed him by 50 pounds.
