Pairings for 64 class A and 64 class B tournaments have been announced and'teams are busily finishing their regular schedules with an eye on the weekend of Feb. 18 and week of Feb. 20. All firing at hoops in this area will' be at four sites—Graettinger, Ringsted, Rolfe and Titonka,* and the winners of class A and class B titles will advance to district competition at sites to be. announced later. Here's how the pairings look: At Graettinger Class B—Superior vs. Rodman, Monday, Feb. 20, 6:30 p.m.; Emmetsburg Catholic vs. Cylinder, Tuesday, Feb. 21, 9:30 pan. .Tertil will play the winner of 'the?

As usual, there is no such thing as favorites, although it is probable good teams like Burt, Lone Rock, LuVerne, Rodman and Livermore "should cause anyone trouble in the B meets, while Algona , St. John's, West Bend, Buffalo Center and Swea City could be the top threats in the A meets in the area. There's one thing certain — a team can only lose one game and be out of the running for good, and that fact alone manufactures many upsets each year. Academy 72-63 Cage Loser To Ft. Dodge Gaels The St. Edmond Gaels of Fort Dodge ran into quite an argument from a fired up St. Cecelia's Academy team Sunday afternoon but pulled away in the final quarter to a comfortable 72-63 victory.
