It may be attitude or just blissful ignorance but junior 285-pound wrestler Garrett McAlexander hasn’t backed down from anybody during his first year of high school wrestling.

As the sixth seed in the heavyweight bracket of the North Coast Section Wrestling Tournament McAlexander could have snuck up on Nicolas Iverson of Ukiah in the championship round of the bracket. That just isn’t his style.

McAlexander served notice to the top seed and returning NCS placer (fifth in 2015) early on Saturday, when the remaining wrestlers were mulling about during weigh-ins.

The faces and number of players change from week to week, but the kids that show up for Klamath Youth Basketball games on Wednesdays and Sundays always seem to have a blast. Hopefully they are learning something while they are at.

“Participation kind of varies,” said organizer Ryan Ray. “Usually we start with the little guys from 6 to 7 p.m., then play with the bigger guys from 7 until 8 p.m. We are trying to teach them how to play and help them develop some skills that they can take with them to the schools.”

1 more tourney left in Del Norte's wrestling season

Eureka may have won the Humboldt-Del Norte League championships the previous weekend, but the Del Norte wrestling team fared better than anyone in the HDN at the North Coast Section Championships on Friday and Saturday.

Of the 177 schools in the NCS (not all schools have a wrestling program), the Warriors finished ahead of all but 17 of them in the NCS standings with 73 points. The Loggers were right on Del Norte’s heels with 71.5 points in a three-way tie for 19th, Fortuna ended with 52 points for 27th place, and Hoopa finished in 49th place with 26 team points. A total of 86 schools were represented at the tournament with 70 schools scoring points this year.

The Del Norte boys tennis team was hit hard by graduation, taking three players from the already undersized squad of four. But the Warriors have rebounded in 2016 with a freshman, three sophomores and a junior joining with returning senior Cameron Douglas to field a full six-man team.

“We have a really green team this year, but we do have a full team of six players,” said Del Norte head coach Jim Holt. “Last year we were already losing three points before we even started the match.”
