Spencer Gains Grappling Title ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, MON., JAN. 24, 1972 Page 6 Estherville Falters in Lakes Title Bid Estherville's Jerry Sundall and Glenn Higgins repeated as Lakes Conference wrestling champions while Randy Pomeroy was winning his first title but it was a disappointing second place finish to Spencer for the Midgets, and barely an escape from fourth place. Spencer compiled 88V2 points to cop the title for the fourth consecutive year, Estherville was second with 7&k , Emmetsburg third with 76, Sheldon rolled up 75 points for fourth, Cherokee's 51 was good for fifth, Spirit Lake with 46 got sixth, Storm Lake with 351 /2 was seventh, and upstart Sibley wound up eighth with two. Estherville had seconds from Frank Boever and Mike Ryan, a third from Bob Moyer, fourths from Dennis St. Lawrence and Brian Iske, and a fifth from Bryan Moffitt. Spencer's winning total, the lowest in the five year history of the Lake's, attests to the meet continually getting tougher with more balance. The previous low was in 1968 when Estherville won the title with 92 points in a six team meet. Spencer set the record team score in 1970 with 124 points, 1 won with 112 in 1969, and with 103 last year. Higgins and Sundall were the only two repeat winners, Higgins gaining the title at 138 last year and Sundall at 126. "I was disappointed that we finished second," Midget coach Dee Brainard commented, "but didn't feel that the boys wrestled all that bad." In comparison, it should be noted that the seniors on the Midgets squad came through in flying colors but experience was costly, especially in the lighter weights. It was apparent early in the final round that the Midget's hopes Coaches Concern. . .
