NEW AHS RECORD WITH 101 POINT WIN Bulldogs Rout Swea City In Cage Opener Algona's Bulldogs used a red hot third quarter to usher them to a record breaking 101-42 victory over Swea City before a sellout crowd In the season opener here Friday night. A bucket by Tom Jones put the total over 100 with about 16 seconds of action left - and the 101 points shattered the previous high of 98, set against Iowa Falls in a 98-82 win two years ago. Coach Howie Stephenson's outfit opens North Central Conference action this Saturday night with a trip to Eagle Grove and a meeting with the Eagles, who feature two lettermen, Steve Hoath and Bill Brauman, and a group of hustling underclassmen. Algona and Swea City played a little give away during the early going Friday before the Bulldogs called a time out and got straightened out by Stephenson. The score was only 2-0 after two minutes, on a bucket by Brocke Laws, when the club organized. By the end of the quarter, Laws and Gregg Betts, who each canned five points, had led a charge that put the Bulldogs on top, 19-10. TOM CLAUDE For Algona fans, the best was yet to come. Substituting freely during the second stanza, Stephenson came up with a couple of combinations that got the job done - but nothing like the third period. Anyway, the locals managed to pull away from the Trojans during: the,.second as. Rog Meyer banged in six points, Tom Claude five and Craig Espe four — and held the upper hand, 44-21, at halftime. When intermission arrived, all ten Bulldogs had seen action, while eight cagers had been in the fray for the Trojans. There was no warning from any direction as to what would go on when the centers jumped opening the second half. Algona just couldn't miss (hardly). Combining steals, blocked shots and rebounding, especially by Betts, the lead went to 52-21, 65-25, and 77-28 before it hit 83-31 at the three-quarter mark. Claude slammed in 15 points, Espe 10, Betts six and Boldridge four during the spree. CRAIG ESPE The reserves took over for the final eight minutes and Meyer and Tom Jones accounted for all but one of the last 18 points as the record fell. Both played quite a quarter. Meyer got interceptions and rebounds and Jones came up with scads of rebounds and blocked shots as the former hit nine points and Jones eight. Rich Black, Bob Farnham and Rog Wildin also scrapped well down the stretch, while Lofstrom carried the load for the losers. Claude, who averaged 8.8 points per game as a junior last season, led the Bulldogs in scoring with 22, while Espe, a 10,8 scorer last year, got 18, Then came Meyer, up from the junior varsity, with 17, Jones, who also spent most of last year on the Junior varsity, 15, and Betts, another lad who moved up this year, 11, Lofstrom got 16 for the Trojans, Jones led the rebounders with 16, followed by Meyer with 14 and Betts, 13, as Algona held the upper hand, 55-30, in that category. For Swea City, Lofstrom got eight and Person and Berg six each. Algona held a 28-7 bulge in steals, interceptions and pickups of errant passes (and both i Upper Des Moinesj SPORTS ROG MEYER clubs were nervous at times), with Espe getting six, and Claude, Meyer and Black four each for the winners, and Pingel three for Swea City. Betts also blocked three Swea shots during the heavy going. While the fray was not as close as many Algona-Swea City games in the past, local fans were thrilled with the quickness of the Bulldogs, especially during that rapid third period. It is possible some of the lack of height among squad members will be made up with agility.

Craig Taylor led the locals with 18 points, while Olson counted 15. Teeter Cans 10 Points In College Debut Dale Teeter, All-State basket- bailer at Algona High School last season, son of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Potratz, Whittemore, saw action for the first time as a collegian Thursday night as the University varsity racked up a 108-85 decision over the frosh. Teeter, playing for the freshmen, was able to see action for about one half of the contest, due to a battle with flu. He hit four of 10 shots from the field and 2-of-5 free tosses to notch 10 points in his first effort. He was quoted after the game as saying the major difference between high school and college ball is the size of the player sand the tough defense and that it hadn't been too difficult for him to move from center in high school to guard on the Drake club. The Drake freshmen are slated to play 15 games this winter and Dale is reportedly one of the shortest men on the club at 6-5. Grapplers Win Three Dual Meets, Britf Algona High's wrestling team notched acome-from-behind, 2815 victory over normally-strong Britt there Wednesday night in the season opener for both schools. Coach Champ Martin's team, which won only four of 11 dual meets a year ago, then won the State Championship, was dumped by Britt in last year's opener. The Bulldogs trailed early, 13-0, then came back to allow the losers only a draw the rest of the way to post the win. Winning matches for the locals were Larry Munger, 120, Steve Claude, 127, Don Camp, a fall at 133, Randy Riedinger, 145, Clint Young, 154, Bruce Bennett, 165, Max Miller, 180, and Brad Farnham, heavyweight. Roger Menneke got a draw at 138. Three freshmen wrestled for the Bulldogs in the lower weights, and all gave a good accounting of themselves. They were Gary Gade, Denny Petersen and Tom Laing, all seeing varsity action for the first time. ; *'The-junior varsity won the curtain-raiser, 33-13, with Eddie Bennett, Lance Rutledge and Calvin Haahr getting falls and Russ Bird, Wayne Taylor, Darrell Miller, Steve Willrett, Larry Taylor and Phil Bode gaining decisions. Two days later, the junior high traveled to Britt and won 43-30, with Mike Moulton, Rick Kuhn, Alan Fett, Dave Simpson, Phil McBride and Les Simpson posting falls and Mark Miller, Terry Alt and Don Sindelar getting decisions.

GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BYOLDMANMOSE Last Saturday's contest had to be based on 21 games, not 22, as we erred in including a Thanksgiving Day contest which originally was scheduled for last Saturday, and later moved back to Thanksgiving without our knowledge. And the guessing wasn't so good, but how could it be? Not a single entry picked a tie for Notre Dame-Michigan State. The winners all came from a group with 15 right out of 21, and the high game total was the deciding factor. High game was Duke, 21 - North Caroline, 25, for 66. Thus, first place went to Larry Sorensen of Fenton with an exact high game total of 66. Close behind him was Dave Hansel- roan of Algona with a high game of 69. Third place award will be divided between Johnny Nyman of Bancroft and Janet Prochaska of Buffalo Cehter, each with a high game of 59. Also in the 15 correct bracket were Judy Everds of Allison, who this week bested her husband, and John Hamilton of Algona. Frances Moe, an earlier winner, this week occupies the Mourner's Bench with only eight right. Honorable mention with 14 correct goes to Stanley Lowe, Bancroft} Daimy Kohlhaas, Burt; Nicky Mueller, Fenton; Pat Chrischilles and Irving Tiffany, Algona; and Greg Brown of Emmetsburg, The final contest of the season will be found in this issue, so good luck in the final round. Same rules, same prizes. Burt Cagers Split Pair At Titonka TITONKA - Burt and Titonka cage teams split a double header here Friday night as the Burt girls copped the opener 68-42 and the Titonka boys slipped past the Burt boys 46-45 In the second contest.
