Frid ay At Garrigan Bears Eye 14-Game Slate The 1961-62 edition of the Algona Bulldogs, defending champion* lof the North Central Conference, will pop the lid off the season tomor- Irovv (Friday) night when they travel to Emmetsburg for a meeting with Ithe always-pesky E-Hawks. Most of the squad members shown, above iwill carry the load for the locals this year. They are: Front row, left to right, Bob Gerber, Dick Pratt, Tom Waller, Rich .lutchins, Lynn Kueck and Gary Naylor. Back row left to right, Coach _iowie Stephenson, Alan Holt, Maynard Shackelford, Chuck Streit, Sig |Wood, Bill Wetzel and Jack Williams. I 1 Coach Stephenson has not named a starting line-up for the opener. IWith only a couple of weeks practice under their belts so far, the Bull- jtlogs are definitely an unknown quality. Only starters returning from last year's outfit, which won 16 and lost only fiyej are Chuck Streit, 6.4 senior, and Tom Waller, 5-9 junior;-,. Both were instrumental in the team's fine showing last season.— and IF — and that's a big word, the newcomers on the squad, and'a couple of others who saw very limited action during 1960-61 come through, the Bulldogs could make it interesting for many opponents again tois winter. , '•..• •. • ,,!? It is probable that Kueck, Wetzel, Shackelford, Pratt,, Hutchins and Sig Wood who is growing taller all the time, will see lots of action be* fore the season is very old as Stephenson attempts to mold another winner. ! Much of the work to date has been on basics and rebounding. There's this much about it — the Bulldogs appear to be ready to hustle — and that's important. (UDM Flashfoto—Engraving)'- ~'\ Garrigan's Golden Bdars took a break during a practice session Friday afternoon- to have their picture taken. The Bears, who open their 1 season here Dec. 2 ; against St. Edmond of Ft. Dodge, began serious scrimmages during the past week after loosening up drills and work on basics used up most Of their time during the tost week of preparations for the 1961-62 season.. . The varsity squad is shown here., Pictured, in the front row, left <"to right, are bteve Smith, Tom; Hudspeth, Mike Smith, John Fandel, Mike Cink and Bob Schneider. In back, left to right LeRoy Heineh and Coach Leon Vanri. ' ''-. Of the 12 players on the roster, Loebach, Goecke, Fandel and Cink are seniors, the rest are juniors — and practically untried. Three 1960-61 •starters graduated this spring, leaving Loebach, Goecke and Cink as the tried veterans this seasbnl The Jour seniors and Heinen lettered a year ago. . . . The Bears have a rugged 14-game slate plus tournament encounters coming up after the Dec. 2-opener. To date, Coach Vann, whose team posted a 14-6 won-lost mark last season, has not seleceted a starting lineup. The juniors on the squad moved up this season from last year's good fresh-soph club. The three rugged men under the boards, Studer rtemen and hahm, will undoubtedly help this season, and the smaller (but quicker)) lads, including the two Smiths, Hudspeth and Schneider could also work into Vann's plans. The combination of large and small men could make it possible for the Bears to play either a set or running type of game.
