He is joined on the veteran list by one senior, four other juniors and a sophomore. Ken Bell is the senior and will wrestle at 132. Juniors are Vic Pokorny, 138, Frank Allen, 145, Scott Ehlers, 119, and Paul Grubaugh, 112. Lane Cooper is the 132-pound sophomore. "Our strength is in the lower weights," Kamrath commets. "We are a young team and must improve as the season progresses." The team consists of eight freshmen, five sophomores, six juniors and the one senior. The Scouts will open the campaign Saturday at the York Invitational. Other tournaments include those at Crete, Central City and Stromsburg plus the Central- , Monarch* e«ge« top rated in Class C Ten Conference meet Feb. 3 and 4 at Albion. The Scout reserves will compete in a tournament at Friend on Jan. 28. David City was 3-4 in dual meets in 1976-77 and placed ninth in the Central Ten. Kamrath picks York and Albion as the potential leaders in the league. The dual season will open Tuesday when Lakeview comes calling. Other home duals are against Schuyler, Osceola and Milford. Kamrath, a 1971 graduate of Wayne State College, is assisted by Randy Rech. DAVID CITY-Eight let- termen return from last year's 14-4 basketball squad that won their Class C district.

(not in photo: Ken Bell) paper also named Mark Moravec, 6-2 senior, to the pre-season Class C all-state team. "The team has eight let- termen who shared four starting positions last year, Kerknian said. "The key will be finding a floor leader to quarterback the team and finding the right combination to using these eight players' abilities." Snaring the pivot position will be Moravec and junior Mark Zeller. Moravec lead the team last season in re- bounding (12.4) and scoring (17.1). Zeller showed the most improvement last year, Kerk- man noted. The forward positions will be manned by lettermcn with inside-outside scoring ability. Bill Gillespie, 6-0 senior, started all but two games last year. A six-foot junior, Randy Skoda, led the team in minutes played and has ex- cellent tuning in rebounding and offensive boardwork. Rick Hanus, 6-2, is a 50 per cent shooter with the ability to score over zone defenses. The best outside shooter on the team according to Kerk- man is senior guard Adrian Palensky. Two other guards fighting for playing time will be Dan Lyons, the Monarch's quickest player, and Mark Duffek, a top defender. Other squad members are John Roh, Darrell Aerts, Steve Hotovy, Dan Krafka, Mark Schaecher, Mick Kovar and Greg Eller. Kerkman says the favorites in the Nebraska Centennial Conference are West Point Central Catholic, Fremont Bergan and Columbus Scotus. He said, "The toughest part of the schedule, Scotus, West Point, Pius X and Fullerton are on the road and these games will determine strength of our team." The Monarchs will play in the Wayne State Tournament Dec. 28, and 30. They will also play in the Centennial Con- ference Tourney Jan. 23-27. Assisting Kerkman, a graduate of Creighton University, will be Fr. Bob Roh. c ..G-F . F-S ...F-C Monarch Roster Plaver POS. K.Mark Moravec . . x-Bill Gillespie . . . .
