Monday, April 19, 1971 Kossuth County Advance - 9 Gills Indian Relays * * The Start Of A Relay Race Corwith-Wesley and West Bend runners head this field of leadoff runners in a relay at Titonka s Ind.an Relays for girls, which was held last Tuesday. Lincoln- Central won the team championship, with Meservey-Thornton finishing second. (Algona Pub. Co. photos) After a windy, chilly afternoon of field -events, the girls came back in the evening for more pneumonia weather. Some of the chill was lost in the excitement of the relay events, like this distance medley relay. The baton exchanges took place in front of the spectator bleachers on the Baton Exchanges On Relay west side of the track. The girls receiving the batons in the top photograph circled the track (440 yards or W-mile) and handed them to a teammate in the bottom photo. Lincoln-Central, in the dark uniforms with single white stripe on jersey, won the event and two other relays. Humor Amid Agony THE "MICKEY MOUSE" approach to hurdling may be an effective way to overcome the tense anticipation and anxiety which precedes the event. West Bend's Harriet Mogler (being helped in bottom photo) walked out some tight muscles after running a Vj-mile leg in the distance medley relay. * * * Mains, Nielsen Win •"OV- . .••^.jff-^-^^Jf'f^-^ff- -- ; •' . . • «;.,,,.««,,(.. Ists At Eagle Relays EAGLE GROVE - Two area track teams - Algona High and Buffalo Center-met similar ends here Friday in the 16th annual Eagle Relays. Both squads finished last in their respective six-team classes. But neither completed the day without an individual winner. Algona had two winners — pole vaulter Rick Nielsen, who matched his school .record of 12' 9", and junior high-hurdler Denny Mains, who nosed out several opponents for his first relays victory ever. Peters won the pole vault for Buffalo Center and placed second in the quarter- mile. . Other Buffalo Center points came -as .follows.- Thorland was fifth in the discus with 114' 9" and third in the shotput with 37' 2 1/2"; Venteicher tied for fourth in the high jump at 5', was fifth in the low hurdles, and second in the high hurdles; the medley relay team finished fifth; and Juttinor was third in the half-mile run with 2:16.7. Algona coach Arlen Baerenwald was pleased with his team's speedy improvement on the basis of individual times and distances. "Our shot .putter threw.a foot farther, and our times were lowered as much as 10 or 15 seconds in some events." Sophomore sprinter Doug Ulrich placed in two events. CLASS A - Ft.

Titonka Girl isSriily Ib. Shot Put * * * * Opens With Squad Of 27 TITONKA (Special) - Carol Peterson, a member of the eighth grade girls track team here, was struck in the head by an eight-pound shotput at practice Friday afternoon, causing a possible concussion. Her coach, Larry Goodrich, said she was in the path of a throw by David Hamilton. "She said she couldn't move very well. I think she was stunned from the shock of being hit." Goodrich said he took Carol by stretcher to the office of Dr. John Lesiak in Titonka, where she was able to support herself on the way into the office. An,X-ray was taken and the wound on the top of her head was closed with stitches before she was released to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Peterson. Her brother, Alan, said she was to be taken to Britt Memorial Hospital Saturday for another X-ray. Public Viewing Two Sundays At Union Slough TITONKA (Special) _• Barring uncooperative weather, Union Slouth National Wildlife Refuge west of here, will be open for self-guided automobile tours April 18 and 25, both Sundays, from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. Refuge manager Steve Berlinger said 2 1/2 miles of refuge roads will be open to public traffic for binocular viewing of wildlife. The roads are county road _A^42, known as the Bancroft- Forest city blacktop; and county road B-14, known as the Govern Grade. Drivers should enter from county road A-42 at the refuge shop. Berlinger said one spotting scope will be provided for observation at one point on the route, so it would be wise to bring binoculars. He said there are lots of ducks, geese, hawks and other birds in the area, but tiie waterfowl concentrations are not large. A good golf nucleus is included in a squad of 27 as the Algona high school golf team opens an extensive spring campaign. The linksmen started their season Friday at Clarion and then travel to Emmetsburg Monday (today) before hosting Humboldt here Thursday in the first home meet. Four other dual meets are included with more to be added. Other events include the May 1 Conference meet, the sectional at Humboldt May 8, the District at Eagle Grove May 15 and hope- fully the state meet May 22. Seniors include letterman Jim , Harris, Jim Stock, Steve Fitzpatrick and Ron Medin; juniors Dick Manske, Mike Moulton, Bob Ressler, Mark Will, Jeff Higgs, Randy Smith, Jim Cubit, Denny , Payne and Rex Post; sophomores • Gene Chrischilles, Richard Boone, Callen Carson, John Pittman, Kevin Gardner and Dennis Utterback; and freshmen Shannon Lynch, Steve Sheakley, Mitch Kleingartner, Mike Koob, Duane Stock, Dana Kain, Dave Chris- chilles and Joel Caughey. th quarter WITH TOM WALLER RESULTS & STANDINGS FROM THE ALGONA LANES MONDAY NITE MEN Pioneer 86 46 Algqna F & F 84 48 Tall Paul's 84 48 Algona P & H 80 51 Chuck Behr's 66 72 60 Don's Rec. 70 62 Weidenhoff 68 64 Universal • 56 76 Lindsay 39 92 Dunn's 20 112 High Team Series - Clmck Behr's 66 2872; High Individual Series - Chuck Geilenfeld 598; High Individual Game- Bob Johnson 223.

Cassel Signs Drake Tender GARRIGAN'S Chuck Cassel has signed a Missouri Valley Conference letter of intent to attend Drake University in Des Moines. The senior miler got an early scholarship offer for being one of the most promising prep milers in Iowa. The tender simply forbids Chuck from competing for another Missouri Valley Conference school against Drake. He could conceivably attend, say, North Texas State, but he couldn't run track there. CHUCK PLANS to study law, as did his father, attorney Leo Cassel. Mrs. Cassel said Drake's pre-law study program and the school's track program influenced Chuck's decision. THE ANNOUNCEMENT comes just a week before: the annual Drake Relays, a university, college and high school track spectacular. Chuck finished tenth in the Drake Relays mile last year and would like to win it this year. The competition, since all high school runners are in one class, may be the toughest he faces all season. Top challengers include- Sports Calendar Tuesday Track Algona at Humboldt Relays Wednesday Track Algona 7-8-9 at Little Eagle Thursday Track Spencer at Algona Algona 9th pt Spencer Ledyard, Swea City at Burt, 3:30 Friday Track Garrigan at Lake City Invitational Friday Golf Humboldt at Algona Saturday Track Garrigan at Drake Relays Saturday Banquet Algona High Basketball Ban* quet runners from Waterloo Columbus and East Sioux City. - o - CASSEL AND Pocahontas sprinter Rick Freeburg were perhaps the' most outstanding track names in the Pocahontas Relays which Garrigan won April 13. Freeburg clocked 9.9 in the 100-yard-dash preliminaries. He's coached by Duane Marcellus, a great athlete at Humboldt in the late 1950s. - o - WEST BEND risked a civil war in order to raise money for little league baseball uniforms. The high school ^ym was the scene of a couple of unusual basketball games Saturday night. The St. Peter and Pauls' Boys Civic Club team played against their fathers, and the City Slickers went against the Farmerettes in the other game. We'll have to check hospital reports to find out how the games came out! - o - BOB GARMS, formerly of Algona, coached the Meservey- Thornton girls track team which finished second in the 19-team Indian Relays at Titonka last Tuesday. Garms was a sprinter on the Algona High track team eight years and a few pounds ago. He slipped me a meal ticket which was greatly appreciated at such a long, cold track meet. By the way, the meet ran smoothly, with Titonka girls track coach Gaylord Sliefert in control. - o - BURT'S PATTY Grubb had to win the high jump the hard way. She initially tied for first with a girl from Rockwell-Swaledale when both failed to clear the bar at 4' 10". Both girls were turning blue from the cold by this time. Nevertheless, in order to break the tie, the bar was lowered to 4' 9". The Rockwell jumper missed a try, and Patty cleared the bar on her first try to win first-place. - o - TITONKA WILL also host the State Line Conference girls and boys meets May 3 and 4, respectively. Lincoln-Central appears to be a clear-cut favorite in girls competition, and Ringsted, Lincoln-Central and Armstrong, appear to have strong boys teams. Swea city (which doesn't have girls basketball) is fielding a girls track team this Spring after being away from the sport for several years. - o - KENT FINANGER, head basketball coach at Luther College, where Algona's Tom Claude just completed his senior season, was the featured speaker at the Swea City Lions Club banquet for Trojan athletes last Thursday. LETTERS TO EDITOR Coach McCall Says Thanks 9 On behalf of the "Golden Bear" basketball team, I would like to extend a hearty "Thank You" for the fine coverage given our team during the season just past. Your personal interest in our players, our team, and our school is more than appreciated. The outstanding success of all athletics here in Algona at both of our fine schools must be at least in part due to the excellent coverage of your newspaper. Although some people may not be aware of it, athletics whether it is football, basketball, track or Uaselali are greatly respon- sible for making the city of Algona and its student-athletes well known and respected throughout the state of Iowa. This knowledge and respect is a direct reflection of our community and its citizens, and should be a source of great pride to all of us. Too often, I think, people overlook the many benefits that good athletic programs reflect on the individuals involved, the schools, and the community. You at the Advance-Upper Des Moines are to be commended for your efforts in helping to bring these benefits to the attention of the public. Keep up the good work! /S/ Steve McCall Athletic Director Garng.au Jiii'li School
