Winning four Individual championships and placing five other men second, Algona High School's wrestling team stormed to the Sectional Tournament title at Clarion Friday night, out-distancing eight other teams, including the Cowboys who wound up second. Denny Petersen, 95 Ibs., Randy Riedlnger, 138, Cling Young, 145, and Bruce Bennett, 154, all posted three straight wins on the way to crowns in their weights andSteve Claude, 127, Don Camp, 133, Max Miller, 165, Phil Bode, 180, and Brad Farnham, heavyweight, placed second. Coach Champ Martin will take this group of nine hustlers to the District Tournament at Urbandale (near Des Moines) this Friday and Saturday - and all who place first or second In that meet will advance to the State Tourney at Watterloo, the same spot where the Bulldogs claimed the State class A, 1 title last year. Algeria lost Paul Watklns, 103, and T<im Laing, 112, in first round rnatches atClarionThurs- day - but the other 10 mo ved ahead (Clarion had 11) and points on falls by Petersen, Claude, Camp, Young and Bode helped the locals hold a 15-14 advantage in leam. points at that point. Alden, Hampton and Belmond were all very] much In the running after the first round also. Larry Munger, 120, State Champion a year ago, dropped out of the running in the semifinals, losing to Gary State of Clarion, 6-2, Claude dropped a decision to Stoltz, Hampton, 6-2, Camp lost to Ryan, Alden, 5-3, and Bode lost to Kalous, Alden, 3-2, also in semi-final matches, while the four eventual title winners and Miller and Farnham posted wins. Miller was the victim of apparent faulty scorekeeping in his finale as he fell to Nelson, Alden, 6-5, and Farnham fell to Steenblock, Belmond, 5-0. An escape and go-behind, coming in a flash near the end of the match, apparently lied Miller and Nelson, but for some reason the first point didn't get Into the book, so Max had to come back and take second through the consolation. The nine lads representing Algona at Urbandale this weekend have a combined total of 149 wins, 46 losses and eight draws Ihls season and have amassed 515 poinls, getting 27 falls along the way.
