The girls finished third In the loop with an 8-6 record, a 55.2 offensive average (6th In the league) and a 51.2 defensive mark, good for second. The boys wound up tied for fourth with a 7-7 record, a 75.6 offensive average (second) 9 Bulldogs Seek District Championship, Urbandale Donald Two local high school basketball teams, Garrigan High and Algona High, wind up their regular 19GG-67 slates with a full round of activity tills weekend. Coach Steve McCall's Golden Bears will put thslr 14-2 record on the line twice, traveling to Ft. Dodge and a meeting with St. Edmond Friday night, then return- Ing home for a fray with Emmetsburg in the season finale the following night. Coach Howie Stephenson's Bulldogs, owners of the North central Conference championship and possessors of a 15-2 season mark, play their final game Friday when the Iowa Falls Cadets come to town for a loop contest. Garrigan is all-victorious against St. Edmond and Catholic. The Bears downed St. Edmond here Dec. 16, 88-64, and at Ft. Dodge Jan. 22, 77-73 , In the CYO Tournament. In the only meeting with Catholic Jan. 17, the locals came out on top, 7170. The Bulldgos met and defeated Iowa Falls there Jan. 6, 73-48, and should down the loop tail- enders on their own court. However, the Cadets are an improved club and could give the locals a real battle. Algona takes a 12-1 league record into the contest, while Iowa Falls is 2-10. Garrigan will be out to get back on the winning track Friday after sustaining Its first loss In 15 games at Esthervllle Saturday night, 73-69. The winning string was the longest in the school's history - and the team is practically certain to finish with the best won-lost record at the school. Dick Muller, Garrigan's all- time scoring leader, now has 832 points In the book, while Bill Reding, second on the all- time list witli 753 points, has topped the club In scoring through the last three contests. Reding has scored 299 points this season and an 18.7 average, while Brian LaBarre has 258 points and a 16.1 pergamemark. Muller is next with 250, 15.6; then comes Joe Becker, 206 12.9 Jack Muller, 89, 5.6; and Jim Youngwirth, 80, 5. Meanwhile, the Bears are cruising along with a 78-polnt offensive average, having scored 1,246 points, while 16 opponents have scored 979 points, an average of 61.2 per game. Bulldog fans are hoping their favorites can wind up the regular slate on a good note - as seven seniors wind up their home court careers. Tom Claude and Craig Espe, who have been at the top (or near it) all season in the loop scoring race, now stand first and third, respectively going into the last game. Claude has 274 points and a 21.1 average and Espe is 247, 19. Sandwiched in between is Ken Grablnski, Clear Lake galnt, who has counted more than half of his 250 points (19.3) in the last four loop games for his team. Claude probably has the title cinched - so the race for second is on bet ween Espe and Grablnski. Other top scorers for the Bulldogs are Gregg Betts, 177, 10.4; Brocke Laws, 136, 8; Bill Boldridge, 98, 5.8; Rog Meyer, 90, 5.3; and Tom Jones, 46," 2.9. As a team, Algona has scored 1,282 points, an average of 75.5 per outing, while giving up 975, 57.4. The combined won-lost totals of the two local teams, 29.4, is by far the finest ever in a single season.
