LuVerne Boys Pick Up Steam The LuVerne boys' basketball team, winners of six out of nine games (and five of their last six) prior to action Friday night, have developed Into one of the top clubs in the area and a top contender in the North Star Conference. Members of Coach Bryce Wickett's outfit are shown in the photo above. They are, front row, left to right, DarylTrauger, Mike Stripling, Doug Nelson, Duane Will, Roger Hansen, Rex Bristow and Don Bristow. Back row, left to right, Bart Selby, Ron Wolf, Barry Selby, Denny Hanselman and Denny Barber. Starters at present are Trauger, Nelson, Will, Hansen and Rex Bristow, while Stripling and Don Bristow serve as reserves for any of the five. Nelson, Will and Rex Bristow are top re- bounders, Trauger is the defensive leader and Nelson, Hancen and Rex Bristow have been leading the scoring, although all have bettered 20 points at least one time during the current season. (UDM Graphic-Polaroid Flashfoto) Bulldogs Go For Number 10; Host Eagles Friday Eagle Grove's Eagles will take a swipe at the North Central Conference leading Algona Bulldogs here tomorrow (Friday) night with but one idea in mind- becomlng the first loop club to dump the locals during the 196667 season.' Coach Howie Stephenson's high-flying group downed the Eagles, 65-57, there Nov. 26 in the second game of the current season - and while the 8- point margin doesn't seem impressive in retrospect, it must be pointed out that the Bulldogs led by a comfortable margin practically all the way until the closing minutes. Eagle Grove hustles from the opening whistle - and has come up with a 3-4 conference record that is only good for sixth place at present. Bill Brauman and Hogenson were the chief thorns in the side of the Bulldogs in the first meeting, getting 19-17 points, respectively, with the latter getting 10 and Brauman six in the final eight minutes. So, the opposition might be more formidable than some the locals have faced recently. The Bulldogs will counter, of course, with an attack (both offensively and defensively) that is usually quite disturbing to any team. Guards Tom Claude and Craig Espe, who have taken turns practically all season leading the locals in scoring, have accounted for 197 and 196 points, respectively, for very imposing 19.7 and 19.6 averages to date. The rest of the squad members seem to score sporadically. Right now, Gregg Belts, center, has a 9.9 average on 99 points; Rog Meyer has 75 points for 7.5 mark; Brocke Laws, 68 for 6.8; Bill Boldridge, 59 for 5.9; and Tom Jones 38 for 3.8. However, each of these lads has had a big night (ormore)so Stephenson is actually fielding "his kind of team." The opposition, while sure that Espe and Claude are going to score, doesn't know where the rest of the points are coming from In picking up nine wins in 10 starts* (andi a. 7-0 loopi-mjtfc) Algona "has scored 768 points for 76.8 average on offense. The vastly-improved play of Boldridge also seems to be one of the keys to recent and future success this season. He's counted 27 points in the last two outings, and if he continues to score, rebound, pass and play defense like he has been, Claude and Espe will be getting a lot of help. Meanwhile, the 9-1 mark has upped Stephenson's career mark here to 114-47 (and he's in his eighth year) for a won-lost percentage of .708 - finest in the history of AHS basketball. here with the Bulldogs. Saturday night, the locals will host another loop foe, Iowa Falls, which normally fields a formidable outfit, with the B-team meet slated at 6:30 and the varsity get-together at 8 p. m. Clint Young kept his record unsullied in Saturday night's 35-10 victory over Hampton, running his mark to 16-0. He also leads the team in points scored so far with 52. He has posted two falls and 14 decisions. Next in points is Don Camp with 48 on the basis of a 12-1 mark with half of his wins via 10-Algona, (lo.)

To Host Iowa Falls Coach Champ Martin's Algona High School wrestling Bulldogs, who are enjoying one of the finest seasons in the history of the sport here, put their 6-2 dual meet record on the line last night against the top team in the North Central Conference (at least prior to that meet) Eagle Grove. The Eagles were undefeated in loop action until the meeting Drop Close Ones, LuVerne LuVerne's girls' basketball team hasn't been enjoying a great season, won-lostwlse, but In seven of eight games they have dropped, they nearly managed victories, according to Coach Bryce Wickett. Members of the squad are shown in the photo above. They are, front row, left to right, Linda Wilhelm, Luana Leek, Laurie Coyle, Michele Coyle, Mary Cronk and Mary HJelmeland. Back row, left to right, Teresa Gilligan, Connie Hefty, Zelda Witzel, Kris Meyer, Raejean Hewitt and Barb Hurlburt. Eight of the 12 girls share most of the playing time for the varsity. The Misses Wilhelm, Michele Coyle, HJelmeland and Hefty are forwards and Leek, Laurie Coyle, Cronk and Meyer are guards. (UDM Graphic-Polaroid Flashfoto) Other men with Jmpressive '.• records include Max Miller, 142, 44 points; Larry Munger, 114-1, 39 points; Randy Riedinger, 11-2-1, 35points; Bruce Bennett, 10-5-1, 32; Steve Claude, 9-6, and Brad Farnham, 9-6-1, 31; and Denny Peterson, 9-6-1, and Phil Bode, 9-4, 29 points. Munger and Claude have each pinned two opponents, while Roger Menneke, Miller, Farnham, Ed Bennett and Bode have each pinned one. The Bulldogs, who also have a pair of firsts in invitationals, Algona and Osage, and a third in a similar meet at Eagle Grove, have won two more dual meets this season than last when four men went to the State Meet and won the Championship for the first time in the school's history. In duals, the locals have run up 214 points, while allowing 111, an average of 26.8-13.8, also one of the best marks in history here.

Drop Pair Algona's seventh and eighth grade basketball teams dropped a pair of decisions at Humboldt Monday. The seventh graders lost, 38-30, while the eighth grade was pummeled, 68-42. LuVerne and CAL split a pair of basketball games at Latimer Friday night, the home girls taking a 40-38 win before Lu- Verne copped the boys' game 6555, in a come-from-behlnd effort. The win gave the boys a 7-3 mark so far. The Lions led, 1615 at the quarter, trailed 27-24 at halftime, then held the upper hand 43-42 at the three-quarter mark before coming through with the victory. Doug Nelson and Roger Hansen tossed in 19 points for Coach Bryce Wickett's club, while Koenen, who fired most of the time from long range, canned 30 for the losers. The shooting of Pals, who got 24 points, was too much for Lu- Verne in the girls' contest as the home club took alow-scoring win. TUESDAY NIGHT BB RESULTS BOYS Goldfield 64, LuVerne 57 Lakota 65, Woden Crystal- Lake 45 St. John's 86, Ledyard 54 Boone Valley 60, West Bend 56 Ringsted 73, Burt 50 Corwith-Wesley 90, Ventura 55 Garrigan's 82.7 Offense Gets Test At Pacelli; Seek Ninth Straight The sky seems to be the limit when it comes to the offensive punch of Garrigan's high-flying Golden Bears - and the locals will put their 82.7 average machine in action against Pacelli at Austin Friday night in an attempt to keep an eight-game winning skein intact. Ft. Dodge High School gave the Bears their only blemish this season in the opener Nov. 29, 82-74, and since that time, the charges of Coach Steve McCall have been winning with some astronomical scoring totals, For instance, in their last outing, the Bears pumped home 104 points in a win at Bancroft over St. John's. In the eight straight wins following the Ft. Dodge contest, Garrigan has scored from 80 to 104 points in all but two frays- and now boast an 82.7 scoring average for nine games, the result of 744 points, while the defensive mark is 57.9 as opponents have scored 521 points in all games. Helping put together that 25 point spread per game have been no less than four regulars, with averages ranging from 13.2 to 19.7, and two others who hive shared starting posts this season. Leader to date is hot-handed Brian LaBarre, who gets many of his points from the outer reaches. The senior guard has pumped home 177 points for his 19.7 average. Coming up with a sudden surge in recent games, Dick Muller has moved into the runner-up spot with 154 points and a 17.1 mark; then come Bill Reding, 134 and 14.9; and Joe Becker, 119 and 13.2. Jim Youngwirth has added 56 points for a 6.2 average and Jack Muller 51 points and a 5.7 mark. Becker's play must be rated a top surprise. Joe has always been a hustler - and he's kept that up so well that he worked his way into the starting lineup after spending almost half the current season as a reserve. And Dick Muller has really come on like mad in recent outings. His rebounding has been top-flight all season, but his scoring touch from a range new to him suffered for a while. It Isn't, now. Since setting a new Individual career scoring mark Dec. 10 of 657 points, he has added another 79 counters and now heads the all-time Garrigan list at 736 - and could threaten the 1,000-point mark before he gets his diploma. LaBarre, whose shooting is sensational, has led the club in scoring no less than four times, and is the only regular who has hit in double figures In each game so far. His totals have ranged from 12 to 34 points- and that high game was only one short of the single game record at GHS - a mark set last season by Dick Muller. Coach McCall, with an 8-1 record this season, has a personal mark of 34-18 (and he's in his third season) for a won- lost percentage of .654. Ski-Daddler Super-Scout—15.2 hp 292 cc.
