McAlexander grabs two wins at state wrestling tournament

Del Norte heavyweight Garrett McAlexander’s first year of wrestling came to a close on Friday but before it did, he accomplished feats nearly unthinkable for an inexperienced grappler.

McAlexander won his first two matches of the day at the California Interscholastic Federation State Wrestling Tournament in Bakersfield on Friday before being knocked  out of the championship bracket by the fifth-ranked wrestler in the entire state.

“Overall it was a great trip,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “He is only a junior, so he is coming back. The things that he has done this year would be a huge accomplishment for a lifetime wrestler, let alone a first-year guy. We are really proud of him.”

Warrior Memories: Templeton was a big lefty and a fun teammate

It is hard to look back at baseball in Crescent City without the name of 1953 Warrior graduate Lee Templeton coming to mind.

Lee was a great big kid who came to Del Norte as a freshman. Right from the start he established that he was going to be a fun Warrior to watch.

Reel Deal: Inconsistent fishing as Smith, Chetco rise and fall quickly

Although there are reportedly still plenty of fresh fish coming into the Smith and Chetco rivers this week, fishing has been hit-or-miss for much of the week, depending on the anglers’ preference.

The Smith River especially has been jumping to levels too high to drift, but has been in good shape for plunkers before dropping back into shape for drift boats by the next day.

The Chetco River, which generally runs a little bit higher than the Smith, has also had stretches of good drifting conditions this week, though angling has been skewed more heavily towards the plunkers up north.

No fear on the wrestling mat

With the exception of half of a season when he was about nine years old, junior heavyweight Garrett McAlexnder has only been wrestling for a total of four months but that is all the experience he needed to qualify for the CIF state tournament as the NCS runner up in the 285-pound bracket.

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.

DN track heptathlon kicks off Thursday

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.
