SIMPSON AND W.C. FANS HAVE 'CHAT' Algona Matnten 29, Webst City 11 BY CHAMP MARTIN Algona wrestlers started the new year off right with a 29-11 victory over a physically-strong but short on know-how Webster City team here Friday night. The Bulldogs won nine of the 12 matches to boost their dual record to 5-2-1 for the season. Webster city entered the meet with a 5-2 dual record including a win over Humboldt, conqueror of the locals last month. -MATCH RESULTS- 98 Ibs. - Mark Miller earned his spot back on the varsity and came through with a 4-2 win over Pat Ribbey. Miller lost a first period takedown but came back with a predicament and reversal to start the evening with a win for Algona. 105 Ibs. - Dan Menneke got back on the winning trail as he bear-hugged Dennis Gibbs to the mat for a takedown, then cruised to a 6-2 victory to give Algona a 6-0 lead. 112 Ibs. - Doug Ulrick was holding his own with experienced Lonnie Keller till he was put on his back and lost a fall in 1:39 of the first period. 119 Ibs. - Mike Putney soundly beat Dave Burnett, Webster's top wrestler, 7-2, as he executed two swift arm drag takedowns and added a predicament and an escape to coast to victory. Burnett brought a 9-1 record into the meet. 126 Ibs. - Paul Martin had a bad night as he lost a one-sided 9-2 count to Mark Hanson. Hanson scored two takedowns, a reversal and a predicament to out- horse the young Bulldog. Martin's points came on a reversal in the second period. 132 Ibs. - Terry Alt lost a takedown only three or four seconds after the referee blew the starting whistle and that ended the scoring for the entire match as neither matman could get points from there on. Alt came on strong in the third period but the Lynx played defense and couldn't be turned over. 138 Ibs. - Action picked up briskly as Scott Buchanan and Stan Britson went to work.

The 5-0 Trojans now share the league lead with just one team, Burt, winners over Sentral Friday. Swea City has an 8-1 season record, losing by two points to state-ranked Buffalo Center of the North Iowa Conference. Burt is unbeaten in seven games. In girls play in the conference, Armstrong and Woden-Crystal Lake also tusseled in a game of 3-0 teams, with Woden-Crystal Lake emerging the winner. Lakota, 3-0, didn't play a conference game Friday.

Both teams were unbeaten in State Line Conference play with 4-0 records going into the game, but the visitors were never in the game. Swea City now has an 8-1 overall record. COACH GARY Ristau again stressed rebounding as the key to a one-sided outcome in the Trojans' favor. Swea City has been averaging more than 55 rebounds per game, and they had 63 Friday, 26 on offense and 37 on defense. The visitors only had 37 total rebounds. Swea City also shot 43 percent from the field, getting off 80 shots. Although guard Mark O'Green followed a 27-point scoring game with no pointsFri day, Ristau said his defensive play was very valuable. He also praised the other starting guard, Chuck Larson, who hadlSpoints, 14 assists and nine rebounds. Wayne Langerman continued to assert himself, leading the Trojans in scoring with 20 points. The Swea J-V also won, 69-46, giving coach Chuck Miller's team a 9-0 record. 0 0 3 1 0 2 0 35 0-1 0-0 0-0 0-0 0-0 0-2 0-0 10-21 0 0 6 2 0 4 0 80 M. O'Green A. Wiechmann C. Johnson P. Greimann D.

The Satellites led 59-53 with 1 1/2 minutes to go and were able to hold off the surging Burt team until time ran out. Sentral's Sally Hanna played well defensively, guarding high- scoring Burt freshman Patty Grubb. However, Miss Grubb still scored 34 points. Maria Waite fired in 47 points for the winners, who were also aided by the 10- point scoring of Darlene Uthof. Roberta Zwiefel scored 12 for Burt. Burt got off 101 shots in the boys game, perhaps a school record. The Bears didn't start quickly, with Sentral tying them up 8-8 midway through the opening quarter.

Kevin then exploded for a match ending escape to clinch the victory. 155 Ibs. - Todd Christenson seemed to be regaining his early season form as he won a clear cut 6-2 victory over Jon Jessen. Jessen scored a first period takedown but Chris came back with a reversal and near fall, plus an escape to win handily. 167 Ibs. - Gene Hunt ran into another unwilling wrestler as the defensive Mark Miller was penalized for stalling in their 6-0 bout with Hunt doing all the work the whole match. Hunt boosted his season's record to 16-0 as he coasted to another easy win. 185 Ibs. - Les Simpson used the taunts of the Webster City fans of "You can't pin him, Simpson," to a good advantage as Les cross-faced Steve Wilson to his shoulders for Algona's only fall in 3 : 03. Simpson's parting remark to the hecklers summed it all up, "I did it, didn't I?" Les also remained undefeated with a 16-0 record. Hwt - Steve Fitzpatrick didn't let 75 extra pounds of weight bother him as he downed 260-lb. Pat Tate 3-2 in the final bout. Fitz did a quick spin around to take down the We faster City giant, then escape points for each wrestler were the only ones scored from then on. Tate and Fitzpatrick drew 1-1 in last year's match. - WRESTLE UNDERWEIGHT It should be noted that the last three Bulldogs have been giving away a lot of weight advantage in the last few duals in order to establish their weight for the lower classes in the sectional tournament. A boy must wrestle a minimum of six matches at his scratch weight, so Hunt, Simpson and Fitzpatrick have been weighing in a weight lower than they compete at. Hunt was outweighed 12 pounds, Simpson, 18, and Fitzpatrick, 75 pounds against Webster City. -J-V MARK 6-1- Algona's junior varsity team posted their sixth victory against a lone loss to Britt, winning the th, , ^, quarter TOM WALLER preliminary match 27-19 over Webster City. Randy Nielsen, Shannon Lynch and Gene Chrischilles all scored falls for Algona.

The teams will host Clear Lake here Tuesday, starting at 6 p.m. HIGH SCHOOL wrestling today draws packed houses. Not so always. Leroy Mathison, now of Whittier, Calif., was back in Algona with his wife, the former Phyllis Kuchynka, visiting relatives over the holidays, and he recalled Algona high's first wrestling team, back in 1935, of which he was the captain. Roy said Willis Colwell was a team mainstay, and the whole "team" included maybe a half dozen grapplers. "The crowd", said Roy, "might go as high as four or five - all relatives of course." THE TEAM ONLY had one or two sets of tights for wrestling, so between matches they had to scurry into the dressing room and shed one suit for the next man to wear. "They were alittle sweaty, too," added Roy. He thought that before the season was over they did get attire for each man. "Pm not sure," said Roy, "but I think O. B. Laingdug into his pocket for a couple of suits so that everyone had one." - o - THE UNIVERSITY of Northern Iowa wrestling team suffered a physical and psychological; jolt last Tuesday wherf,,;Ljtti6 ,,A11- American Clint Young of Algona hurt a knee in?practice.

Two daughters—Bev and Sandra—had just led their respective LuVerne high and eighth grade teams in scoring. Bev, a junior, scored 53 in an 85-57 win over Kanawha Dec. 22, and Sandra scored 45.in a 72-23 win over Burt the day before. - o - 6 - Kotiuth County Advene* Monday, January 11, 197] A SON, DOUG; is r a junior starter on the Moiningslde col- lege.team;!

Morningside played Mankato State the following Monday afternoon, and D6ug was his team's highest scorer with 25 points in a victory over the Indians. THAT MADE three Nelson's the high scorers in three victories in one week's time. A fourth Nelson, Mrs. Gene (Linda) Will of Algona, is past her basketball playing days now or she might have made it four-for-four. As it is, she's in a much more difficult game now . . . teaching fourth grade students at Lucia Wallace school. -o- WHAT'S MORE frustrating than going to the barn in subzero temperatures to care for 35 cows and a calf when you would prefer to be watching your sons play high school basketball. That's why you'll see Mr. and Mrs. Ed Kenyon of Whittemore walk into the Gar rigan high school gym somewhere around halftime of the junior varsity game—too late to see their twin sons, Don and Ron, in action for an entire game. Believe me, they make up for what they miss with enthusiasm. : .... I .
