"Dick w&uld have continued wrestling, too," Mrs. Colwell said, "fittt a swimming accident In Seventh grade left him paralyzed in the right arm for two years." So, the Colwell's ended up with two wrestlers and A manager. "It feels great," their mother said. "We're more grateful than anything else. They don't get there themselves." The Colwells "live wrestling: morning, noon and night. In fact we enjoy it more than some of otir friends care for," Mrs. Colwell said. "I think wrestling is one of the most moral-developing sports because of the self-discipline the boys must have," she said. "Also the concern of the other young men for each other is tremendous." Following Mike's runner-up finish to Belmond's Kevin Braner in the 105-lb. district finals last weekend, the Wildcat received a phone call from Algona's Bill Bernardo. Bernardo withdrew from the meet due to illness and' wanted to wish Colwell his congratulations and best-of- luck for the upcoming state meet. '/ Four Wildcat wrestlers have worked with Colwell preparing Him for the tournament after their seasons had finished. Rdd Harklau, Kevin Goodell, Don Steuve and John Carver wrestled with Colwell every day to prepare him for the tournament competition.

Mrs. Colwell laughed, "They kid me about my praying too much and that the other mothers pray too. If you're prepared it helps to have God's grace. If you're not prepared it won't help anyway." She also said, "I'll bet a lot of fathers are praying too." The Colwell parents are just as proud of Dick's work as Fitch's manager-assistant and Mrs. Colwell said, "We're mighty proud to have not two but three boys in the J. Meyers. . . . M. Shipman. . ©wa.

She said her three sons living at home, along with the daughter at Briar Cliff and Pat in the Navy, have become closer because of the sport. "They all get together and talk wrestling," their mother said. The care and feeding of a grappler is more touchy than that for another athlete due to the importance of maintaining a certain weight. "I think they eat a better diet during wrestling than during the rest of the year," she said. "They have to stay with a balanced diet throughout the season." For breakfast Paul and Mike consume a poached egg, dark toast and juice. "If they're close to weight they can eat the school lunch at noon," she said. "If above, they take a dark -bread and meat sandwich, a small apple or an orange." For the evening meal they have good lean meat, green vegetable, salad and jello. The Colwell parents as well as their sons have a lot of respect for Coach Joe Fitch and love for the other wrestling families. "So many people think he's such a tough coach and he is. The kids love and respect him because of his training and discipline," Mrs. Colwell said. "They can't wait when the season's over to take off for the hills .on their motorcycles with him." Concerning the other families, she said, "The wrestling boosters become like a big family. You care as much for the other boys as you do your own. It's really wonderful. Humboldt has the greatest fans and they follow where- ever they go. It's not just people with boys who are competing but everyone. Our cheerleaders also do a fantastic job." "It's a good thing wrestling is a winter sport because when the boys are wrestling father farms alone," Colwell said.
