6-Algond (la.) Upper Des Maine* Tuesday, November 13, Only 2 Lettermen On Algona Hi Cage Squad Success of Alogna high school's basketball team thus season will depend to a great extent on newcomers. Coach Harold Shugart has only two leUermen on his 12-man squad at present, and it'll take some doing to get the team ready for the season opener next Tuesday, Nov. 30. at Bel- niond. The locals tangle with Estherville in the second outing Nov. 27 at Estherville, and don't appear on the home court until Hampton comes to town for a North Central Conference engagement Friday. Dec. 7. Bob Slobe and Ted Finley arc the two lettermen present at practice sessions now, with Ron Zittritsch expected to get into action as soon as his shouhkv mends. He suffered a separation at the tail-end of the tootball season. There are eight on the squad, counting Zittritsch, who got into varsity action last year. Three of the eight got into only one game, and when adding in the totals compiled by Slobe, Zittritsch and Finley during the 1955-56 season, the group scored a total of 264 points, with the three veterans accounting for 243 of the total.' Slobe was more or less a times, and counted 100 points in 19 contests for a 5.3 average, Zittritsch, a regular, got 11H points in 22 games for a 5.4 mark and Finley tossed in his 25 points in 18 games for a 1 4 average. Juniors Howie Funk and Jerry Rupp and sophomore Jim Cowan could lend the team a needed lift. There's no Doug Meyer to toss in points and grab rebounds this year as there was last. Meyer will never be forgotten by Algona fans due to his record- breaking performances a year ago when Coach Bob King's crew chalked up a 12-10 won-lost mark that was good enough to land them in the district tournament. Meyer scored 449 points, an average of 20.4 per game and had a game of 45, record high of all-time. He averaged almost 26 points per game over the last 10 games, undoubtedly the tup offensive output .by any Bulldog. His performance a year ago landed him on the fourth IDPA all- state team. But he's gone, and there's no reason to wish. Shugarl will attempt to put together a unit that will outscore the opposition instead at trying to do the job with one or two men. He's got them working hard, and sometimes effort pays off: KOSSUTH COUNTY PORTS Academy Cage Season To Open Here Next Saturday St. John's of Bancroft stopped St. Cecelia's, 31-23, during two periods of play in the North Central Catholic Conference jamboree at Pocahonlas Sunday. The Johnnies, with Dave Schiltz and Vaske showing the way, launched an early assault thai put the Bancroft team in front 20-7 after eight minutes of play. The Blue Knights, who open their regular season Ihis Sunday when they host Mason City's Holy Family Maroons here, closed the gap slightly as the teams traded points through much of the second stanza. Top scorers in the short contest were Vaskc and Cecil Schil- moeller of St. Cecelia's with 12 points apiece. Schiltz added ten to the St. John's tolal, while Mark Seeley was runner-up for Algona's enlry wilh six. Box score: St. Cecelia's (23) FG FT PF Froehlich 0 0 1 Schilmoeller 3 6 0 J.

Of course,, the squad hasn't shaped up yet, but already it is apparent the coach will have trouble finding men to fit into the middle weight slots. Martin has many candidates in the light and heavier weights, but few possibilities from the 120 Ib. ••class thtoxtgh the 133 Ib. weight division. There are men on the squad besides the letter winners who have had previous experience, although in most cases it has been very limited. Many of the boys were tried on the B-squad a year ago, and may not develop in time to help this season.
