Munger, Samp, Martin And Fitz All Win Titles Never in the history of wrestling at Algona high school has a small band of competitors done so well in a District Tournament as the four taken to Urbandale by Coach Champ Martin Friday and Saturday. All four, Larry Munger, 112, Tom Samp, 127, Dave Martin, 154, and Tom Fitzpatrick, heavyweight, captured championships- and as a result, Algona nearly grabbed the team title from the heavily-favored Britt team, which had nine men entered following competition in the Sectional Meet earlier. When the points had been totaled, Britt captured the crown with 58 points, while Algona came up with 50. And Britt will send five men to the State Meet at Waterloo this weekend, compared to Algona's four. Ankeny wound up third with 41 points, then came Urbandale, 28, Alden, 21, Clarion and Johnston, 20 each, with the others amassing lesser totals. Martin and * itzpairick copped Sectional championships, while Munger and Samp reached the District after placing second. So, for the ' "o lightweights, District titles were especially sweet. Martin and Fitzpatrick went to the State Meet last year, with the former taking the 145-lb. title and Fitz second at heavyweight. Algona's four District champs will face second place winners from other district meets in the first round at Waterloo. Here is the victory trail taken by Algona's winners at Urbandale: 112 - Munger decisioned Sams (Gladbrook), 4-3; then decisioned Robinson (Saydell), 5-1; and Matern (Britt), 4-3, in the finals. 127 - Samp decisioned Garcia (Saydell), 6-4; Juel (West Marshall), 3-1; and McClanathon (Grundy CenterX 3-2, in the finals. 154 - Martin decisioned Miller (B-C), 5-1; Wade (Clarke), 4-1; and Lee Johnson (Britt), 5-0, in the finals.

All matchesatllEand 154were settled by decisions, Fitzpatrick got two of the three falls in the heavyweight division and Samp's opponent in the finals of the 127- Ib. division got falls in his first two matches in the meet. Martin's win kept him unbeaten this season. He and Johnston battled to a draw when Algona met Britt in the opening dual meet of the season and Martin has downed him three times since that time.
