Taylor Wins Crown; AHS Grapplers Second SPORTS Bulldogs Trail Only Humboldt In Stale Meet Recreation Class Here 12—Algona (la.) Upper DM Moin»« Tuesday, March 5, 1968 Larry Taylor, junior 138- pounder who came on like Gangbusters during the final half of the season, grabbed an individual state championship and led Algona High School's 5-manteam to a second place finish in the State Class A Wrestling Tournament at Waterloo's McElroy Auditorium Friday and Saturday. The Bulldogs of Coach Champ Martin, who took turns with Humboldt winning tournaments on the way to the State Meet, finished second to the Wildcats as five of the top six teams in the tourney were from this area. Here's how the top six finished: Humboldt 46 ALGONA 28 Tripoli 27 Hampton 20 Clarion 16 Britt 14 Class AA champions turned out to be Cedar Falls, coached by Keith Young, former Algonan, who learned his high school grappling under Coach Martin at AHS. The Cedar Falls club nabbed the title from West Waterloo, a team that had captured the trophy three years in a row. It. proved to be Humboldt's turn to win the State. The Wildcats edged Algona for the Sectional crown at Humboldt by five points, but the Bulldogs snared the District title at North Polk from the Wildcats by four points. Then Humboldt, capping a fine year in its fourth season of wrestling, easily won the State. After the first round at Waterloo, it appeared the Bulldogs were the team to beat. All five oftheMartinmen,GaryGade, 95, Steve Claude, who was defending his championship at 127, Taylor, Don Camp, 145, and Bruce Bennett, 180, came through with decisions. The semi-finals proved quite disastrous as all but Taylor, who had toughies all the way to the top, were defeated. So Algona's 15-12 lead in team points over Humboldt after the first day's activities quickly went down the drain - and the Wildcats, who put four men into the finals, actually had the crown wrapped up before the finals got underway. Taylor, who finished with an 18-6-1 season record, got past Jerry Johnson (Logan-Magnolia), 4-3, in the opening round of action, getting the one point needed for victory on riding time. He then disposed of Jerry Steen- lage (Britt), 5-4, in semi-finals, hanging on for the win after taking a 4-2 lead in the first two periods — and climaxed his 3-win championship skein with a 4-2 victory over Lynn Pitts (Ankeny) in the finals. That last victory was great. Taylor and Pitts went at it all the way - and after the opening period, neither had scored a point. Each got a reversal during the second 2- minute go- around and that's the way it remained until Larry got another reversal with only 22 seconds remaining In the match. Taylor needed the points, because Pitts apparently had enough riding time to give WTO the victory - if the matcb bad ended 2-2. Taylor, a junior who also is a football halfback, was Sectional champion, then placed second in Having A Nasty Time! A basketball tournament is underway in the Algona men's recreation class of adult education. Tournament games are held each Thursday night at the Algona High School gym under the leadership of Keith Christie. In play last week, the Skins defeated the Shirts 10-8 and the Sox 10-6 behind the scoring of Lynn Kueck. Kueck paced his team with 10 points in each game. Dr. Don Kingfield led the Shirts scoring with 6. Leading scorer for the Sox was Bob Wells, with two Wells also pleased the fans with a display of trick dribbling. In the consolation game, Bob Kramer's seven points gave the Shirts a 10-9 come-from-behind victory over the Sox. Riverside was the Sox top point-getter with three. Injuries were reported by all participants. Kingfield and Oscar Froehlich suffered sprained ankles, Galen DeValois received a nasty floor burn on his knee, Ted Smith scratched his finger, Kramer threw out his shoulder again, Wells fell off a chair and Riverside lost his temper. Games are postponed next week due to high school tournament play, but will resume March 14. the Fenton Progressors, meeting the Seneca Progressive Farmers at 6. The Swea-Harrison boys will play the Eagle Wildcats at 6:45.

On Dean's List The first semester Dean's List for the College of Arts and Sciences at Creighton University the District before his fine finish at Waterloo. Claude and Camp (who had the best won-lost mark for the Bulldogs this season) came back to win thirds after going down in the semis.

Claude wound up the season with a 25-6-1 mark, Camp was 27-4 (with three of the four losses at the hands of John Showalter (Hampton), who downed him in the semi-finals, Gade finished with a 17-12 record and Bennett wound up 22-9. Career-wise, Taylor is now 18-7-1; Gade 18-13; Claude 4619-1; Camp 48-9; and Bennett 40-22-1. The second place finish by the locals was the second straight in that position for Coach Martin's club. Prior to that, the team won the title in 1966 and finished second, third and second in that order, so it's been no lower than third in the State for the past six sessions.
