(Algona Publishing Co. photo) 37 Cars And 1000 Fans For Stocks.. A New Coach Garrigan High GARRIGAN baseball coach Joe Ascolese, age 22, wanted to win his first game as a head coach. There's no .doubt about that. Baseball has been too much a part of his life not to care. Backing that up with fact, PU only a mention a couple of things: (1) he played on New Jersey state championship teams his sophomore, junior and senior years in high school, and (2) he was good enough to earn a baseball scholarship to Buena Vista College, Storm Lake, where he later graduated after playing with the Beavers in the NAIA tourney in St. Joseph, Mo. - o- ALGONA HIGH, with Keith. Christie again handling the coaching, starts its baseball sea•son at home May 28 against West Bend. - o ALGONA congratulates Rick Nielsen on his national honor (see story on this page). - o ACCORDING TO poll results published in "The Christian Athlete," a publication of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, sixty- five percent of college coaches believe recruiting is at least half of coaching. This helps explain why coaches often risk cheating on the recruiting rules. IT ALSO helps explain why college coaches are, as a group, opposed to the National Collegiate Athletic Association's proposal that scholarships be limited to students in financial need only. They didn't trust each other to recruit honestly before, and they feel the new proposal would simply encourage more cheating. - o- THE WINNINGEST coach in Swea City basketball history has resigned, Gary Ristau, 24, a graduate of Elmore High and Mankato State. Swea City had a 38-9 won-lost record and won its two State Line Conference championships in the two seasons Ristau coached. The school is reportedly interviewing for a new coach, Ristau has indicated he plans either to study full-time for a masters degree or to seek another coaching position. More than 1,000 race fans braved temperatures in the 5ffs at Kossuth Speedway here Friday night to watch 25 super stocks and 12 late model cars compete for the $1,500 opening night purse. There were no reported injuries, although anxious moments developed twice — when one driver hit the north wall, and when another sailed off the track. The driver in the north wall collison during one of the heats, walked away unharmed. Ray Curtis of Bode was reportedly shaken up after his car left the track at the southeast corner during the consolation race and rolled over several times down the embankment. His car was believed to be heavily damaged. Dennis Hovinga of Laurenshad the fastest time, 18:36, in the time trials but had to settle for second place in one heat and third in the feature. GeneSchatt- schneider of Algona proved he was ready for the opener by winning one heat, placing second to Arnold Braland of Boone in the trophy dash, and nosing out Braland to win the feature. Algona drivers dominated the sportsmen's events, with Jim Bradford taking the heat and Bob Crail the feature. -SUPER STOCKS- FIRST HEAT- 1. Arnold Braland, Boone; 2. Dennis Hovinga, Laurens; 3.

Bears Begin 25-Gamc Schedule Garrigan fought back from a 2-0deficit to tie Mason City Newman 2-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning here Friday night. But the Golden Bears lost their season opener when the Knights scored an unearned run in the top of the eighth and Garrigan failed to score with the bases loaded in the bottom half of the extra inning. Garrigan's new coach, Joe Ascolese wasn't about to dwell on the walk that put the deciding run on base, or on the steal that moved him to second base, or on the passed ball which enabled him to score the winning run from third. Instead, he cited his team's inability to move baserunners around the basepaths. -COACH CITES GOOD, BAD"We played good defense ... only one error," Ascolese noted. "But we left too many men on (12). We hit real well (9 hits to Newman's 6) for this early in the year." Newman has played about a dozen games this spring. They'll host Garrigan June 18. Paul Mertz, a senior lefthander, pitched all eight innings, striking out eight and walking six. Newman managed "single runs in the second and fifth. They put three singles together for the first run, and a walk followed by a double produced the second. Garrigan rallied with runs in the sixth and seventh. Dale Fandel singled and scored after Mike Skilling's single and a fielder's choice ground ball off the bat of Dan Bormann. Steve Skilling scored the second Garrigan run after walking, stealing second and heading home on Fandel's single to left. The Bears had the bases loaded with two out in the eighth but couldn't get hit No. 10 off the fine Newman pitcher. Garrigan will play a doubleheader here Tuesday against LuVerne weather permitting.
