tittle in Algona History! Bulldog wrestlers second in state Seeker _ Cordes _ Thomsen lippen _ Miller, Martin win crowns; second Kiss of death Three Algeria high school wrestlers carried the Bulldogs to second place in the state Class A mat tournament at Waterloo Friday and Saturday, It was the third time in 19 years Algona has finished as state runnenm under Coach Champ Martin's tutelage. In addition; Algona has ended in third place in two other seasons. Denny Miller and Dave Martin both won state championship titles while Tom Fitzpatrick narrowly missed a crown to end in second place. Between the trio, they compiled 35 points. Osage won the title with 47 points including two state titles, two runnerups and a third. Al- 'gona was far ahead of third place Britt and .fourth place Clarion with 28 and 20 ooints. The four top teams all came from the Osage district and they scored more points between them as did the next nine teams /in line. ALGONA had virtually no chance to win the state meet after the first round, when Osage qualified all five of its entrants. But the Bulldog showing, considering only three men got to the state, was the best in history. Miller had the easiest time of it. He pinned his first two opponents in less than two minutes and then decisioned Dave Jahnel of Osape in the finals. 4-1. He pinned Frank Havick of Oakland in 1:53 in the semifinals. Miller completed his career with a 23-1 mark this year and a two-year record of 44-2. In addition, he won 77 points for Algona during th« nast year, high for the team. Miller is only the second Algona high school wrestler in history to win two state titles. Paul Fisher did it in 1950-51. Miller was the 133- pound chamo a year ago and the 138-pound title-holder this year. DAVE MARTIN'S victory was a fine comeback for the son of Coach Martin after he failed to get to the state meet last year although having the second best season of any Bulldog in 196364. Martin was 20-3 for the season, 38-4-1 for two years and was second in points with 68 this year. He won his semifinals match with ease by drubbing Dennis Mercer 8-0 and then edged Rosengren of Logan-Manolia in the finals, 4-1. He is only a junior and has a chance to become the third two-time state champion next winter, probably in the 154- pound class. TOM FITZPATRICK, runnerup in the heavyweight class, likewise has another year left and he won't have" to worry about what .class he'll be in or cutting weight "Fitz" has already gone farther than any Algona heavyweight in history. He won his semifinal match by defeating Max Matthiesen of Central DeWitt, 1-0 and then lost in the finals to Steve Klein of Sentral loses; Twin Rivers meets C-W DENNY MILLER (left) appears to be giving Frank Havick of Oakland a kiss during their semifinal match at the Waterloo Hippodrome Saturday afternoon. But the only kiss Miller, is giving is the "Kiss of Death" as he pinned Havick a ; couple pf seconds later in 1:53 to advance to the finals. The referee's striped shirt can be seen upper right as he watches and prepares to slam the mat to signify Miller's victory. It was ironic that there were only five pins-in the entire state class A meet and Miller registered two of them. Exclusive "On-the- Scene" photo by Mike Stillman.
