Boldridge breaks foot as Bulldogs practice A blow to the Algona high — school football camp came Mon- over a vear a 8°' day when it was learned that Bill Boldridge, who had been "running as the first team quarterback after the first week of drills, had a broken bone in a foot. • The injury came on a rou- ' tine play. Boldridge was not tackled on the play but rather "; broke the bone when he cut ' sharply. The break is on a bone leading from a toe and will sideline the senior letterman .for about a month. Although the injury is a blow to Bulldog hopes, it is probably not a critical one since sophomore Rod Rogert and junior Roger Barr have both been doing well in drills. "OF COURSE we are unhappy over Boldridge's injury but Barr and Rogert have been throwing better than we had expected and we feel they '.11 fill in capably," Christie added. A couple of youngsters, junior Randy Reidinger and Phil Bode, soph, were cited for hard work and enthusiasm. "We'll find a spot for both of these boys for sure if they keep up their good work," Christie said. THE BULLDOGS will have some practices under the lights and some scrimmage work will je in the offering as they prepare for their opener, the first if three straight road games at Emmetsburg a week from Friday. Christie reported that whereas he had thought the Bulldog pass- ng would be only mediocre ear- y in the season, he now thinks lis team will pass more than had been expected. Both Barr nd Boldridge had been throw- ng, well and ends Tom Claude and Chris Conn and halfback Jlack had been doing a good job of receiving. Coach Keith .Christie said Tuesday. The Bulldog camp has also been beset by a number of minor sprains, bruises, blisters and the like. Halfback Steve Waller has been hampered by a minor sprain and another halfback, Rich Black, has been troubled with a back injury. That leaves only Greg Batts in workable condition as a half back. The extreme heat the pas couple of days has also hamper ed local drills. Christie had special praise for several of his charges. On of them was Max Miller, nov about 180 pounds. "He's beei doing a fine job for us at guar< and has improved tremendously Twelve grueling miles for Gary Nelson Dee Erickson wins Algona golf title, Dee Erickson won the 1966 women's club championship at the Algona Country Club recently by edging Vivian Hagen, 3 & 2 in the meet finals. Mrs. Erickson had won the title previously in 1959 and Mrs. Hagen had won it the past 3 years. Mrs. Erickson followed up her victory by shooting a 36 at the local course Tuesday, one of the lowest scores ever recorded by a woman on the local course. |^ jSSS^^SSSi^^S^SSS^S^^S SPORTS ^^^^^^^—-^—^^^^js^S^SSS^^^HHiS^S^EiHH^BSBHSB 2—ALGONA (Iowa) ADVANCE THURSDAY, SEPT. 1, 1966 Eleven Bears may go both ways on gridiron A young Algona swimmer, Gary Nelson, 16, set a new record at the Algona municipal swimming pool Saturday when, he swam a distance of twelve miles between the hours of 8:15 a.m. and 3:08 p.m. Gary used free style, butterfly, inverted butterfly, side, back and breast strokes to cover the distance. His elapsed time for the record distance was seven hours and 53 minutes. He had originally planned to swim, 20 miles, but due to exhaustion he had to be pulled out of the pool after twelve. Gary is on the local swimming team and is the son of the Carl Nelsons. Check your tire tread now, before you hit the skids.

This doesn't mean that Beanie will not substitute during.; the season or that'these eleven will play anywhere near the entire game. But considering the lack of deoth there'll probably be less substituting this year than in any of the previous seven campaigns. EIGHT OF the starters are lettermen and if the Bears opened tomorrow night, their starting lineup would read something like this: Quarterback, Bill Reding: fullback, Jack Muller; halfback, sophomore Tom Black or senior Mark Go-etz; and flanker back, Gene Lickteig. Up front, there'll be Dick Muller and Jim Youngwirth at the ends; Mike Grotty and Dave McCarthy at the guards; Bob Schmitt and Jerry Plathe at the tackles, and Jack Dahlhauser at center. Cooper praised the work of several of his boys. "We're real pleased with the fullback work, of Muller (6'3" and 198 Ibs,), And Jerry Plathe, a 170 Ib. junior, has also shown up well." Cooper also singled out Dick Muller and Jack Dahlhauser for praise. Thus far, injuries have b°en held to a minimum. Reding missed several drills this week with a pulled groin muscle but is expected to be going full speed by early next week. ONLY SERIOUS complication has been a dislocated shoulder to Mike Garman early in the season and he'll be out for about a month. The varsitv squad is now down to 47 men but Cooper has lost just a couple of boys since drills opened. The Bears will be going after ieorge Lee wins Algona meet with 109 score - George Lea of Humboldt witih- tood late challenges by A!go- la's Frank Rueb and Phil Jose- yn of Fort Dodge to win the 16th mnual Algona Amateur golf ournatiient at the Algona Coun< ry Club Saturday with a 27-hole scbre of 109, one over pat. Lee broke away from the pack early with a two under 34 on his first nine and still had a two-stroke edge over Rueb after II holes and a three- stroke margin over Joselyn •nd Algona Club Champion Dr. Harold Erickson. The latter faded out of contention quickly with two, bogies and a double-bogie in the first five holes. Lee had a four-stroke lead over Rueb and Joselyn going to No. 7 but he went one over par on seven and then carded a six on No. 8 after driving into the creek and burying his ball attempting to hit out. BOTH RUEB and Joselyn had good chances to tie the meet but left key putts on the lip of the cup several times on the final holes. They trailed Lee by just a stroke going into No. 9 but all three carded pars. Joselyn won second place by defeating Rueb in a play-off. Three men knotted for 4th with 112's. They were Dr. Jim Harris of Algona, Fred Gordon of Belmond and Pete Langmack, Beaver Dam, Wis., and a former Algona high school athlete. Harris won the playoff.
