Burt's boys and Titonka's girls reign this week as 1957 basketball champions of Kossuth county following the wind-up of one of the closest tourneys in history at Titonka Friday and Saturday nights. Burt annexed its second consecutive title by edging Titonka 46-44 .Saturday night after Titonka grabbed the girls crown with a thrilling 35-33 verdict over Whittemore the night before. A 16-game winning streak owned by the Bears was nearly cut short by a hard-fighting Titonka team in the boys fina' game, wihch was played before a large crowd of anxious fans A bucket by Gary Giddings with a minute remaining in the 4th seriod gave Burt the title anc 17 win without a loss this year In fact, it was Giddings wht more or less quarterbacked the win during a Burt comeback in the final period. His rebounding and scoring turned the .tide for Coach Ray Ihnen's quintet . At the start, Jerry Garman and John Smidt engineered a Burt attack that would apparently chase the Indians out of the gym. :but that's as far as the chase went. The Bears were in control the first eight minutes, and after taking a 9-2 lead early, led 19-11 at the quarter. Titonka's balance began to pay off during the second round, and the Indians closed the gap to 25-21 at halftime,; ; •Bill Abbas pulled the Indians into a tie with a jump shot at 25-25 and Craig Sathoff hit a free toss that gave Titqnk/a" a 26-25 lead right after the'haif and the game was as cozy as "that the rest of the way. Kent Rippentrop, who sparkled for the Indians, hii a pair of jump shots near the end of the third stanza, giving Titonka a 34,-31 lead that dwindled to 34-33 at the three-quartei marki Titonka held the upper hand 38-35 early in the last period when Giddings put on his fine display. He hit a rebound and two free throws to give the Bears the lead, 39-38, and a layup by Garman made it 41-38. Titonka got a tie at 44-all, but Giddingg then hit the clincher to give the Bears the title. There were fine players all over the place. Garman topped Burt with 17 points, while Smidt and Gjddings each hit 12. Rippentrop tossed in 16 and Sathoff nine for Titonka. Grant took third place in the boys division with a 48-45 win over LOne Rock in the opener. Coach Tony Winters, who has been doing great things all season with his eight squad members, used only five boys in this one .with Phil Tokheim leading the way with 18 points. Ramus got 20 for the losers. Grant now has an 11-6 record,'. A near-capacity crowd watched Titonka take the girls title Friday night, and many were limp with excitement when the final buzzer sounded. The teams were rated even before the contest and both carried outstanding defensive records into the fray. Whittemore got off to an 8-6 lead af the quarter quarter mark, 27-26, and held on to take the game. Diane Krominga, Trudy Bess and Donna Beenken shared scoring honors for the winners as they have done all year. Krominga notched 14 points, Bess 11 and Beenken ten .while Donna Wood got 19 and Balgeman ten .'or Whittemore. Lakota took the consolation game from Lone Rock, 53-47, but had to fight off a valiant last- period comeback attempt by the losers to get the job done. Kay Thomsen got 29 points for the winners, while Schrader notched 21 for Lone Rock. Vt"rI"T!"* 9ir1 ?'
