Waterloo East was right on the J-Hawks' heels however and pushed three grapplers into tilt* finals. The Trojans will have juf-t one wrestler shooting for a third place, though, and Jeff will be bidding with three and two more going for a fifth-place' spot.

Coming into the tournament, Igram bad a 14-7-1 record and faced a small task in going against unbeaten Rick Bickert of Mason City (21-0). “Gas was just super,” said Jeff mentor Bill McNiel, who is facing the probability of the title not being decided until 138 or 145 pounds,. Igram not only shocked Bickert, but came back to knock off his second unbeaten opponent in Doug Gunther of U'Mars. “Gas has made rapid improvement just since the sectionals and he was shooting for a takedown any time he 3 Lisbon Matmen In Finals Le Grand, Askelson Sidelined By Steve Allspach Gillett* Sports Writer DES MOINES - Lisbon’s Al Baxter was breathing a bit easier after the semifinal round of the state class A wrestling meet, but if the Lisbon team is to repeat as state camp, they’ll have to at least wait until the finals this year. Last yeat Lisbon clinched the title during the semifinals, but Tri-Center Neola is forcing the issue to the limit this time. Three Lisbon grapplers will be vying for titles, while Tri-Center has just two. Leading the way are defending state champions Doug Englert and Doug lx>rd. Jim Bennett at 119 is the other Lisbon wrestler to reach the finals. The two major casualties for Baxter were Chuck LeGrand and Mark Askelson. LeGrand, bothered by flu all week, was beaten in the semis by Kevin Ralston of Grundy Center, and last year’s second-place finisher will have to settle for a shot at third this time at 98. Eagle Grove held a 41-34 edge over defending state champion Britt in the race for the class AA title trophy. The two Metro grapplers in action, Jeff Steffen of LaSalle and Glen Colton of Linn-Mar ran into buzzsaws in the opening and semifinals rounds. Steffen was pinned by Lynn!

MONTICELLO — Marion squandered an early 13-point lead and finally held on for a SB-55 basketball win here Friday night. The victory gave the Indians a tie for fifth place in the Wamac loop with a 5-9 mark. It was the fifth in a row for wanted to, it seemed,” gushed a relieved McNiel. The relief of Igram’s adVann to the finals, where he will face yet another unbeaten, Mark Johnson of Des Moines Hoover, brought out Jeff’s biggest dusap-pointment. Classy 112-pounder Paul Vik-tora, the J-Hawks’ top hope for a title going in, dropped a 7-fi verdict to Ankeny’s Mike Babcock. Babcock has lost only once arid hit Viktora with two firemen’s carries that kepi the stocky J-llawk off balance “I’m making no predictions, except that we’ll probably have to win ’em all tomorrow,” cautioned the J-Hawk coach. Ilittenmillcr demolished Urbandale’s Larry Lueth in the 105 semifinals and the halfpoint he earned for his superior decision, was the margin Jeff held over East, 41 '/a to ll. Tom Sadler and Jim Comreid lost opening round bouts, and Jed Brown and Dick Briggs also fell in the semifinals. Brown was knocked off by Valley’s unbeaten Mike Land at 128 and Briggs was beaten by Stan Allen of Eae,t, 9 5. Waterloo West held on to third place, but dropped out of contention when Jim Hafke lost at 3 8. Defending heavyweight champ John Bowlby earned another shot at a title by knocking off previously unbeaten Mike Engwall of Fairfield. Other Gazette-Area grapplers were Iowa City’s Rick Griffin (heavyweight) and Bill Hoffman (132).
