SPORTS Pederson Tops Bulldogs In Scoring For Season Dale Pederson, senior lefty guard who took the lead in the Individual scoring race among Algona High School basketball players in the 15th contest this season, wound up as top Bulldog point producer with a 300 total in 21 games. He is shown above (24) launching a successful shot against Forest City in the finals of the District Tournament last week as the locals nabbed the championship, then lost in the first round of Sub-State action at Spencer Saturday night to an unbeaten Storm Lake team, 82-48. Pederson posted a 14.3 point per game average as he nipped Rog Meyer, another senior, who canned 274 points for a 13.1 average. Number three spot went to Tom Jones, senior center, with 200 points and a 9.5 average; then came Rich Balck, 176, 8.4; Mike Betts, 133, 7; Craig Taylor, 105, 5.5; Denny Richter, 61, 3.4; Rod Rogert, 38, 2.9; Smokey Barr, 22, 1.1; Steve Voyles, 20, 1.5; Jeff Allen, 8, 1.6; Dave Lowman, 6, 2; Dean Lowman, 5, 1; and Neal Smith, 1, .2. Dale led the locals in scoring no less than 11 times, while • Meyer led six times, Black and Jones, three each, and Betts once. Richter, Meyer, Jones, Black, Pederson, Taylor, Barr, Voyles, Smith and Allen are all seniors and the remaining four should return for their final season late this fall. Coach Howie Stephenson's club wound up with a 14-7 season mark and 9-5 record in the North Central Conference, good for a third place finish behind Clear Lake and Iowa Falls. Stephenson's won-lost record at the local school is now 136-56 for a winning percentage of .709. This season's club counted 1,348 points and allowed 1,297, finishing with a 64.2 offensive average and 61.7 defensive mark. In won-lost percentage, this year's team ranks sixth since Stephenson took the reins nine years ago as head coach. (Dave Riley Photo) Former Tifonka Man Resigns College Post Bill Abbas, former Titonka resident, whose Hiram Scott College (Scottsbluff, Nebr.) wrestling teams have posted a 19-11 dual meet record in his three years at the helm, announced his resignation as head wrestling coach at the college recently. Abbas, 27, will study for his doctorate degree at Colorado State College, Greeley. The first athletic coach hired for the new college, Abbas graduated from Iowa State University, Ames, with majors in history and physical education. As a wrestler at ISU, Bill posted a 35-7-2 record and finished third in the Big 8 Tournament his junior and senior years. The Cyclones were also second 27.3 average and his total of.258 rebounds, an average of 18.4 each game, must also be a new mark. Loop records probably cannot be located to prove or disprove the claim. Other top scorers were Bill McCoy, Iowa Falls, 317,22.6; Bill Smith, Eagle Grove, 271, 19.3; Tim Shelton, Webster City, 262, 18.7; Tim McKinney, Webster City, 227, 16.2; Scott Sims, Clarion, 222, 15.8; Steve Carlson, Humboldt, 210, 15; and MarkHo- genson, Eagle Grove, 192, 13.7 FINAL STANDINGS W L Clear Lake 14 0 Iowa Falls 10 4 ALGONA 9 5 Webster City 8 6 Humboldt 7 7 Eagle Grove 6 8 Clarion 1 13 Hampton 1 13 Records also show that Algona and Clear Lake finished with identical 11-3 marks in Junior Varsity action.

Abbas is married and has two children. Algona High School's third place finish in the recent North Central Conference chase seems all the more impressive on the basis of final season statistics for all eight clubs in the loop. Coach Howie Stephenson's team, with a 9-5 final mark in the league, wound up behind Clear Lake, 14-0, and Iowa Falls, 10-4, at season's end. The club was third in offensive average, fifth in the defensive and rebounding departments and had no one at all listed among the best 10 rebound- ers in the conference. How does it all add up to a third place ranking? There's no column in the statistics headed "Hustle" and that*s the way several of the victories went into the records. Two Algona scorers, Dale Pederson and Rog Meyer, finished in the top ten in the scoring race. Both seniors, Pederson canned 224 points in 14 frays for a 16 point average while Meyer hit 192 in the same number of games for a 13.7 mark. Pederson finished sixth and Meyer ninth among the leaders. Ken Grabinski, Clear Lake's biggest gun, copped the scoring and rebound titles with ease. He counted 383 points for a-record' 8 xlO Natural Color Portrait FIRST TIME OFFERED AT 99< Plus 50£ handling.
