Friday, There was no damage reported, Algona Annexes Championship At Waterloo The Bulldogs really did GO GET 'EM! Getting stellar performances from a 4-man wrestling team, including championships in three weights and a second in toe other, Coach Champ Martin got toe thrill of his illustrious 20-year coaching career Saturday as Algona high school literally walked away with the state Class A wrestling titie at Waterloo. Individual championships were garnered by Larry Munger at 112 Ibs., Dave Martin at 154 and Tom Fitzpatrick, heavyweight. Tom samp dropped a heartbreaker by one point in toe finals at 127 as the Bulldogs nearly copped four titles. Samp's contribution was a big one. Martin's title was his second in a row as he topped the field at 145 last spring, Fitzpatrick placed second in his weight a year ago. The State Championship, which saw the loclas blasting runner-up Britt, 47-30, in team totals, followed what had been termed by some as a rather dreary season, which saw Algona win only four of toe 11 dual meets, a fact that was quickly forgotten when toe Bulldogs placed second to Britt in toe Sectional and pistrict meets - and completely obliterated wito toe presentation of toe State Championship trophy. It was a great job by four great grapplers and a fine coach I Britt, picked to win the titie before toe State Meet got underway, wound up wito one individual champion, Dave Grant, at 180. Ankeny, with toe great jason Smith leading toe way at 165, was third wito 27 points. Smith pinned practically allofhisoppo- ents during the entire season. Munger's championship came on a thrilling 2-0 decision over Britt's Mike Matern, who he also downed in the finals of the District. He got into the finale with a fall in 5:09 over John Larsen of Mount Ayr in toe first round and a 4-0 decision over Sylvan Luloff of Jesupin toe semi-finals. He wound up the season with a 22-4 record. Martin bested Ron Crooks, Nashua strong man, 3-1, in the championship battle after beating John Spearing of Harlan, 7-1, in the opener and pinning John Lechtenberg of Turkey Valley in 2:50 in the semi-finals. His season mark went to 27-0-1 and he posted a career record of 73-6-2, an all-time high here in number of victories. Fitzpatrick edged Bill Larsen of Harlan, 2-1, in the finals, upping Jus season mark to 25-3. Fitz decisioned Darrell Cates, Missouri Valley, 6-1, and Ed Souder, Osage toughie, 4- 0, on the way to toe finals. His career mark of 53-8-1 far surpasses any previous heavyweight's record at AHS. Samp, who lost to Joe Carstensen of Comanche in the finals, downed Jim Fisher, Turkey Valley, 2-1, in toe first round and Dick White, Monticello, 6-0, in the semi-finals. He finished with a 41-17 career mark. Munger, only junior of the group, will carry a 42-21-2 record into his senior year this winter. All four were also prominent footballers for Algona last fall as toe Bulldogs won six of eight games. The state title for Algona followed finishes of second, third and second the past three years. The Bulldogs had two state champions, Martin and Dennis Miller, last year, and one each the preceding two meets. The four participants in toe State Meet were the only boys who posted winning varsity records for coach Martin during the season. The final 17-point edge over second place Britt was one of toe largest margins posted by a team in toe tourney during recent years. Congratulations! — Champ, Larry, Tom, Dave and Fitz, on a job very well done f 2 Injured A motorbike driven by John Reid, Algona, and an auto driven by Linda Sherman, both of Algona, collided at toe intersection of Phillips and McGregor streets here Saturday at 2 : 12 p. m., resulting in an estimated $400 damage to toe vehicles and sending Reid and a passenger on his machine, Barbara Wicks, Algona, to St. Ann hospital for treatment of injuries. .Reid sustained scalp lacerations and possible awn fractures, while Miss Wicks sustained cuts and bruises.
