Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - March 17, 1955, Sioux Center, Iowa While we Krotow statistics dont mean a lot in the state its a lot of fun to juggle them around and try to determine which of the eight teams will come out at the top of the pile saturday Ive got All the important figures in front of me As i write so it is possible to determine How each team ranks according to its season Only one class b team t to the finals this Little Rol the team that went to Iowa City three years in a 52 arid 53 but didst quite reach the state playoffs last Rol and is second to Sioux Center in average our warriors have played the most games this season 31 White Ames has played the least Ron Juffer has the highest Point total for the season of All players in the state a mighty while Dick Kraayenbrink 481 is fifth a Dubuque Gene has the Best scoring aver age for the Points per compared with Ronny the records dont show another team with As much even scoring a of the other seven teams have no More than two or three Ace while the indians boast four and can produce at least a couple More from the Bench when the going is in not trying to build Sioux Center up for a big be cause i know the indians Luck can run out anytime but the rec ords show that were sending Down a mighty Fine this they have a lot of strength on the first string and plenty on tap on the Roland boasts the largest aver age margin of Victory for the sea while Sioux Center is second with Iowa City skin Ned by with the smallest margin of Victory through the Only Sioux centers 2487 Points for the season is the highest of All eight but of course weve played the most games Only two other teams have allowed their opponents More Points than the indians did during the but the tribe boasts the highest average score per it would1 be easy to conclude from just these figures that the Sioux Center warriors will prob ably win the but such a conclusion would be ill what cant be evaluate of is the comparative strength of each teams opponents for the and that must re main the unknown but important Factor in this we know Sioux Center has bowled Over some very easy teams but has also knocked off some real we May presume that the other teams have of but in what proportions we dont this final Matching of these eight teams is the Only Way to determine which will be crowned the state their records mean nothing unless they win their next three the tribe will be wearing dark uniforms in the first encounter and if they win be wearing dark uniforms straight through their next two their position in the
