Gmpplers Rated High on Polls
"Flyers rule! " was the cry heard most often
around the wrestling mat. Six FHS wrestlers earned
berths on the All-Conference team as Freeman
rounded out one of its most successful seasons. Under
their leadership the Flyers sustained a 10-2 record.
Among the titles the squad won are the Con-
ference Championship and the Freeman Invitational
Tournament. A narrow victory over Montrose also
captured the Cornbelt Conference Tournament.
Although several FHSer's rated high on the polls,
only Don Hansen attended the state meet, where he
The fastest pin trophy went to Marlin Holz-
warth with a 19 second pin, David Epp and Randy
Barta tied for the most pins with 12 apiece. Don
Hansen collected 18 takedowns for the trophy.

Cindermen Had cz Super Season
After a deadlock finish with Salem, a lucky toss
gave the title of Regional Champs to the Flyers. It
seemed that the FHS tracksters then had their revenge
since they placed second to Salem at the Conference.
Individual efforts were also brought out during the
'72 track season. David jones, Mark Gross, Tim Villa,
and joey Villa broke the school's 2- mile relay record
with their efforts at the Southern Invitational. Gregg
Graber broke the shotput record at the Stickney Relays
and again at the State Track Meet. Greg Kleinsasser
broke the long jump record at the Stickney Relays.
At the Regional Track Meet, eight boys qualified
for the honor of competing at the State Track Meet.
They are: Greg Kleinsasser, high jump, long jump, mile
relay, medley relay, joey Villa, mile relay, medley
relay, mile run, Brad Christensen, high hurdles, medley
