Patterson Sets < Vault Mark In State "A" Meet Wayne Patterson set a new pole vault standard for Algona high school trackmen, going 12 feet in the State class A Meet at Drake Stadium, Des Moines, Saturday as the Bulldogs wound up 23rd in a large field. Strangely, Patterson's new local mark was good only for fourth place as two vaulters went to better marks. Algona's medley relay team wound up fifth in that event as the locals counted three points. Eagle Grove of the North Central Conference captured the team crown for the second straight year and Humboldt placed third. The Eagles chalked up 42 points to win handily. Ames managed to win the class AA crown.
