14-Alfl6ne, (la.) Upper De* Moinei thundery, februdpy 17, 1966 Bears, Bulldogs To Wind Up Regular Schedules The Garrigan Golden Bears and Algona Bulldogs, who will run headlong into each other in the first round of the District Basketball Tournament at Garrigan Fieldhouse Monday, Feb. 28, wind up their regular season schedules this week, then will get busy preparing for the BIG ONE! Garrigan, which met Granville Spalding there Tuesday night, will host Ft. Dodge St. Edmond here Friday night, then travels to Emmetsburg and a meeting with Catholic the following night, winding up the season's regular slate. The Bulldogs travel to Iowa Falls and a meeting with the rugged cadets Friday, then host Hampton here Tuesday night, Feb. 22, in a makeup game. Both are North Central Conference contests - and Algona must win both while Clear Lake must lose at Humboldt Friday night in order for the locals to gain a share of the loop title, The Bears, sporting a 13-3 mark after a brilliant come- from-behlnd 69-60 win over Estherville here Saturday night, have not met Spalding previously this season, but have split two games with St. Edmond to date. The locals dumped the Gaels, 56-51, at Ft. Dodge, Dec. 17, then dropped a 62-57 decision in the CYO Tournament here recently - so this third meeting is for all the marbles. The Bulldogs, with a 14-2 record, including a 97-68 victory over Clarion last Friday as Dale Teeter tossed in a record-tying 45 points, downed Iowa Falls here Jan. 7, 80-51, and edged Hampton there, 6965, Jan. 28. Algona put together one of its best team performances of the season in the earlier Iowa Falls meeting - and could have trouble with either (or both) of this week's foes. Offensively, the Bears are led by Dick Muller, junior forward, who has hit 288 points for an 18-polnt average so far. He is trailed by Bill Reding, 215, 13.4} Don Potthoff, 203, 12.7; Bob Smith, 111, 6.9; Brian LaBarre, 102, 6.4; and Dick Bleich, 94, 5.8. The Bears have scored 1,091 points to 964 for opponents, an average of 68.2 - 60.2 per game. Teeter heads the list of scorers at Algona high with 392 points and a 24.5 average. He has scored 991 career points, 135 behind the career mark of Doug Meyer, who played here in the mid-fifties - and he is approaching the single season record of 484, set by Slg Wood (not 447 by Meyer as reported in another Algona newspaper earlier this week) during the 1963-64 season. Other top scorers for the Bulldogs are Craig Espe, 182, 11.4; Dan Merryman, 166, 11.1; Dave Walker, 144, 9; and Tom Claude, 69, 7.7. The team has scored 1,055 points to 878 for the opposition, an average of 65.9 - 54.8. Teeter leads the conference in scoring with 300 points in 12 games, a 25-point average, and will repeat as the loop's top point producer. On comparative scores against only one common foe, Estherville, the Algona-Garrigan meeting should be a lulu. Bears Belt Spalding, 92-62; Meet Gets Head Caught In Door Of Final Pair Of Foes This Weekend R Un Away car The 100-mile Journey toGran- ville failed to dull Garrigan's attack as the Golden Bears pasted Spalding 92-62 Tuesday night. The victory gave the locals a 14-3 record for the season. Coach Steve McCall's outfit winds up its regular season schedule this weekend, hosting St. Edmond Friday night, then traveling to Emmetsburg and a meeting with Catholic the following night. After a rather close first quarter, which saw Dick Bleich toss in seven points for the Bears, the locals wound up on top, 20-15, after holding a 17-9 bulge with six minutes gone. Garrigan put the game away in the second stanza, outscorlng the home club, 29-15, for a 49-30 lead at the intermission. Bill Reding tossed in 10 points, Dick Muller seven and Bob Smith six during this hot streak, which saw the Bears hit 19 of 22 free throws as ths Spalding club committed 12 fouls in eight minutes. Don Potthoff, who turned in a fine last half against Estherville Saturday night, led the Bears again in this one during the final two periods, getting eight points in each quarter as the lead went to 68-37 at the three- quarter mark and 92-62 at the end. Garrigan came up with eight steals along the way to help seal the verdict, and four men wound up in double figures in scoring. Potthoff got 21, Muller 20 and Smith and Reding 14 each. Speller got 21, Budden 14 and Koster 10 for the losers. Muller also blocked four shots during the fray. Box score: GARRIGAN(92) Bleich 3 1-15 LaBarre 1 0-0 1 Youngwlrth 1 2-2 3 Potthoff 10 1-15 Reding 4 7-6 0 Muller 6 13-8 3 Smith 4 10-6 4 Long 0 3-3 2 Rlngsdorf 3 4-13 32 41-28 26 Garrigan's 92 points may have established a single game record Munger, Samp, Martin And Fitz To District Tourney SPORTS 11 Area Teams Swing Into Sectionals Monday Four Algona high school wrestlers, all seniors, will travel with Coach champ Martin to Urbandale this weekend (Feb. 18-19) where they will attempt to win District Tournament crowns - and with it the right to enter the State Meet at Waterloo the following weekend. Larry Munger, 112, and Tom Samp, 127, qualified by taking second in the Sectional Meet at Humboldt Feb. 7-8, while Dave Martin, 154, and Tom Fitzpatrick, heavyweight, won firsts in the same meet to advance to the District. All four of the local grapplers won first round matches in the Sectional Meet with falls. Munger then lost in the semi-finals, but came back to win his first consolation match and the consolation finals to take second. Samp lost in the finals at 127, then won his consolation match to take a firm grip on second. Martin and Fitzpatrick won decisions in the finals to win firsts. Martin downed Johnson of Britt, 4-2, and Fitzpatrick decisioned Lodden of Humboldt, 6-3. Martin and Fitzpatrick made the trip to the State Meet last spring, and Dave captured the crown at 145 and Fitz placed second in the heavyweight division as the Bulldogs grabbed second in the meet. Dave has won every match this season after a season-opening draw against Britt, while Fitz hasn't tasted defeat very often in his entire career and is the top heavyweight on the basis of matches won in history here. Martin's win total during his high school career is undoubtedly the largest ever assembled by an Algona grappler, Whittemore Is Winner Of GHS BB Title Whittemore won the Garrigan Grade School Basketball Tournament championship with a cozy 35-33 victory over Algona I at Garrigan Fieldhouse Sunday night, Humboldt won the consolation game in another squeaker, 30-27, from St. Joe, High point man for the new Champions was Mark Besch -with 11 points, while Randy Studer pumped in 12 for Algona.
