Four AHS Mafmen Go For Sfafe Titles Coach Champ Martin and his four District Wrestling Tournament champions, Larry Munger, Tom Samp, Dave Martin and Tom Fitzpatrick, will travel to Waterloo this weekend where they will attempt to overcome great odds and nab the State Class A championship at the Auditorium. Matches will take place Friday and Saturday. The four grapplers upset the odds at Urbandale last weekend, placing second to Brltt's itower- house in the Sectional Meet, which had 27 high schools represented, and claiming four individual championships In the process. First round matches at Waterloo will find Algona's matmen meeting second place finishers from two other districts. Here are unofficial pairings: Munger, junior 112-pound campaigner, will probably meet Larson of Mount Ayr; Samp, senior at 127, will probably tangle with Fisher of Turkey Valley; Martin, senior at 154 who captured the state title at 145 last year, is slated to grapple with Spearing of Harlan; and Fitzpatrick, senior who was second In the heavyweight division a year ago, is supposed to meet Gates of Missouri Valley, Fisher was second in the Osage District Meet; the others placed second in the Audubon District Meet. Algona's four District champs and State Meet qualifiers were the only members of the wrestling squad here this winter who finished above the .500 mark in wins. The Bulldogs posted a 4-7 dual meet record before really coming to life in tournament competition. With so many good wrestlers competing In the State Meet at Waterloo, it will be necessary for all four of the locals to place first or second to have a chance for the team crown. That's asking a lot - but look what happened last weekend I Go get 'em, Bulldogs. BULLDOGS VS. BEARS 7:30 P.M., MONDAY, FEB. 28- That date and time have been written In red letters on many calendars In this area since pairings for the Boys District Basketball Tournament at Garrigan Fleldhouse were announced several weeks ago - because that's when two real good local teams, Algona high and Garrigan, run headlong Into each other. And, unfortunately for half the fans, only one team can advance. REALLY BIG ONE So, It's a BIG ONE. But that's nothing new to Coach Steve McCall of Garrigan and Coach Howie Stephenson of the Bulldogs, for their teams have been playing big ones all season. Garrigan completed Its regular season with a 69-62 victory over Emmetsburg catholic Saturday night, posting a 16-4 record, best in the school's history, while the public school club wound up its regular season Tuesday night, putting a 15-2 mark on the line against Hampton in a North Central Conference game. The team finished second in the loop. WHO WILL WIN ? On the basis of statistics for the two clubs (to be found nearby). It's tougher than the dickens trying to figure out who will win. First off, the Bulldogs and Bears played only one common foe, Estherville, and each defeated the Midgets by nine points on local floors. Algona high won, 52-43, and Garrigan, 69-60, so it looks like the teams are even. On the other hand, season statistics show the clubs to be very even, also, especially when the opposition of each was apparently very similar in toughness. Based purely on cold offensive and defensive totals, the Bulldogs hold a slim 3.3 edge - however, the home court advantage the Bears will be credited with by many erases that margin - so the battle should be nlp-and- tuck. RUNAWAY POSSIBLE It's also possible to foresee a runaway - by the Bears if Don potthoff, Dick Muller and Bill Reding, who hits exceedingly well from far out at times, are on target, and by the Bulldogs if Dale Teeter, Dan Merryman and Craig Espe, also a fine out-shooter, are hitting the mark. All games between the two schools (they've met four times in tourney action) have been well- played - and each owns a pair of victories to date. Twice the games have been close, and while the others have been rather lopsided (favoring each team once), they were also good contests, with the large margins resulting from one team or the other being cold from the field. A further examination of the statistics to date shows Garrigan has hit an average of 26.4 field goals per game, compared to 23.8 for the Bulldogs; and Algona high holds a 19.5-15.1 edge in free throws. Algona has committed an average of 16,9 fouls per contest and the Bears 21,8 and the offenses and defenses of the two clubs are very •similar. The Bulldogs have shot free throws at a .737 clip, while Garrigan is hitting .606 of all attempts. TEETER, MULLER TOPS Leading scorers for the two teams are Teeter, a senior, with 428 points and a 25.2 average this year (1,027 points during his career), Merryman, senior, 185, 11,5, and Espe, junior, 188, ll'.l, for the Bulldogs; and MuUer, junior, 345, 17.2 (567 career points), Potthoff, senior, 282,14.1 (639 career points), and Reding, junior, 267,13.3, tor the Bears.
