First, Twin Rivers of Bode, eliminated a north end contender, Lakota, 62 to 32, in district tournament play at Clear Lake last week. Then Twin Rivers itself was eliminated by a hot Alden team. Alden thus faced Franklin Consolidated for a state tournament spot and Alden won the final in the district Saturday, thus entering the Sweet Sixteen. Twin Rivers wound up its season with a 16-7 mark, and Lakota bowed out with a 17-5 record. A summary of the Twin Rivers- Lakota game at Clear Lake week Wednesday, follows: Twin Rivers was cold from the floor the first half but outstanding work in the guard court held Lakota to five first quarter points and just 10 by halftime and the winners held a 23-10 lead at the intermission. Guard Barb Ehrhardt was outstanding performer for Twin Rivers. She held Lakota's outshoot- ing forward, Carmen Cook, to just one field goal during the game. Twin Rivers was led in scoring by Helen Rutz who hit 23 points. Pat McGee added 16 and Bev Fiderlick had 11. The Twin Rivers reserves played minutes of the game. Twin Rivers (6Z) P. McGee 4 B.

The pair chalked up enough points to place he two-man team seventh in the lass B meet. Both of Algona's state tourney inishers are juniors. Patton finished' the season with a 17-2-1 record and Hutchison wound up with a .4-5 mark.

Britt also won the district crown a week eaf- lier at Clarion as Patton placed first and Hutchinsoh. second in their weight classes. Algona dumped Britt early in the season in a duel meet on the way to an 8-44 season dual meet record. ~ Hutchison won his first round match from Gary 'Neal, Mourit Vernon, 5-0, then was defeated by Rich Leichtman, New Hampton, who went on to win the crown, 5-0, in the semi-finals. He then came back to decision Dean James, Chariton, 2-0, in the consolation to grab third. Patton edged Brent Wells (Maquoketa), 4-3, in the opening round, then downed Don Gary (Griswold), 2-1, in the semi-finals. Bob then climaxed his climb to the top rung by dumping Darrell Brown (Jesup), 4-0, in the championship match. Patton also set a new scoring record during the 1961-62 season. He counted a total of '69 points, high for all-time here in a single season. Barring unforeseen complications in some weight classes, Coach Champ Martin should have another top-notch team next season. Practically his entire team should be back for another go on the mat. The Bulldogs' have been above the .500 mark for the past three years and have now bested .500 six times in 16 years.

Dodge team Friday night at Ft. Dodge and dropped an 82-53 decision in the final regularly-scheduled game of the season. Coach Leon Vann's outfit will put a 12-6 won-Iost mark on the line this Saturday, Mar. 3, when Graettinger will furnish the opposition in the first round of the district tournament in the Garrigan gym here at 8:15 p.m. The Bears poster a 62.7 offensive average and 59.1 defensive mark this year. The Bears will be led into action by three scorers, Mike Cink, who canned a total of 302 points for an average of 16.8, Lyle Loebach, who hit 230 points and a 12.8 average and Bob Goecke, with 212 points and a 13.2 average during the regular season. Other starters are John Fandel, 155 points and an 8.6 average and Bob Schneider, 63 points and a 3.7 average. A pair of Steves, Smith and Studer, will also see action for the Bears in the fray. A Garrigan win Saturday would move the Bears into the semi-finals Monday, Mar. 5, against the winner of the Bancroft St. John's- Sentral game which will be played at Garrigan this Saturday at 7 p.m. The Bears were never in the game with St. Edmond after the teams went into a 10-10 tie with six minutes gone in the first quarter. The teams, overly-cautious at the start, both made mistakes, but St. Edmond's errors were not costly as Garrigan couldn't take advantage of the breaks. The Ft. Dodge entry, meanwhile, used every available means to roll up a 19-10 bulge at the end of the period. Not even some fine out-shooting by Mike Cink could keep the Bears in the running during the second period. The Gaels used a balanced attack, which featured the shooting of Dan Hansard, huge center, and Mike Tracy, to zoom to a 41-26 halftime advantage. Balance again paid off for the winners during the second half. Lyle Loebach, who counted only a pair of free throws for the locals during the first half, canned six points during the third period, but John Anderson and Dan Fitzgerald more than countered for the Gaels, who led, 68-40, at the three-quarter mark. Reserves played out most of the final stanza as St. Edmond added one more point to the winning total. The Pears wanted to win this one too badly — they pressed too much due to their anxiety and the Gaels made the most of the mistakes. Actually, if (and that's a mighty big word) the locals had hit their normal percentage of shots during the early going, the game might have gone right down to the final buzzer before a decision was reached. St. Edmond was real hot. Their best shooting during an eight minute stretch came in the third period when they canned 13 of 18 attempts from the field. Loebach got 12 late points to take scoring honors for the Bears with 14 points. Cink wound up with 12, while Hansard got 16, Fitzgerald 14 and Tracy 12 for the winners. Bob Schneider, Goecke and Loebach were the best bets under the boards for the Bears.

Whittemore Has A Tough Season Lakota bounced Whittemore out of state tournament competition at Lakota last Thursday night, 66-40 to end Whittemore's winless season after 16 games. Despite the loss, Whittemore fielded the game's top scorers in the duo of Paul Maahs and Brian Espe — both of whom hit 17 points. Winning Lakota, now 17-3 for the season, was Jed in the scoring column by Charold Barrett with 15 points. UPM Clawified* Pay Algona Hi Winds Up 3rd In Loop With 59-50 Final Win Get Revenge At Iowa Falls Friday Night Algona high school's basketball team cinched third place in the North Central conference, Friday night at Iowa Falls. The Bulldogs revenged themselves -oh ,the 'Cadets with a 59 to 50 win. Earlier in the season, Iowa Falls downed Algona by the same mar gin of nine points. . , Clear Lake and Hampton have a postponed game to play in the loop otherwise all teams have completed their conference games. * * * CONFENENCE STANDINGS (6 teams finished) .

During the second half, Iowa Falls made a vigorous comeback effort, but the Bulldogs managed to keep'the spread at or near 10 points all, the way. Sig Wood and Chuck Streit got things rolling early for the, winners with quick field goals before Iowa Falls tallied, and Algona was never behind. The Cadets had trouble penetrating Algona's defense and were cold from outside the entire first half, with Algona hammering in 12 field goals to the Cadets 8. Tom Waller accounted for six of the 12 first half Algona field goals with his best marksmanship from outside this season. In the second half, Lynn Kueck sparked the offense. While the Cadets massed in front of Streit, Wood and Wetzel, Kueck slashed his way in for three field goals and five free throws out of seven. Bill Wetzel alternated with Streit at the post, and the maneuvering .seemed to puzzle the Iowa Falls defense. Smuck, the Cadet's lightning guard, banged in two field goals, lis only ones of the game, early in the third quarter to narrow the 10-point gap, but after that was held in check from outside. Fouls on the Cadets got Algona into the one and one situation on Tree throws early in the second tialf, while Algona played a cautious game and the Cadets never did get the one and one advantage. Coach Howie Stephenson went all the way with his starters. Streit, with. thrde fouls' early in the sec6nd quarter, had to play, it cautious'from there' on and finished with just three. Hornung was the major thorn in Algona's side, until he was whistled out late in the fourth quarter with five personals. , This week the Bulldogs, who have given indications of gaining a better balance in recent games, settled down in preparation for the district tourament. • Their final third place tie in the conference, is a tribute to their development this season, with only two lettermen returning from last year's championship' squad. While Kueck and Streit will be lost for next season, -via graduation, the outlook is still quite favorable for a worthy entry in the 1962-63 conference race. ...,'• Game Summary: Algona - ', fg ft Wetzel 3 3-4 >Wpod ..4 2-3 Streit .3 3-4 Kueck ......5 5-7 Waller 7 2-2 pf '2 1 3 1 2 former- trophy.'
