The 42nd Annual Jaycees Girls Basketball Tournament had to scramble to fill all five brackets in the week leading up to the event, but once everything got set the two-day tournament went off without a hitch Friday and Saturday.

Del Norte County had even more representatives than originally expected with nine local schools competing in the 40-team tournament. Crescent Elk had three eighth grade teams and a seventh-grade team in attendance. Redwood sent three teams with the eighth-, seventh- and sixth-graders all represented. Smith River also had a team compete, as did Uncharted Shores Academy.

DN wrestlers win team trophy in Mack Tourney

Warriors crown two champions, two more runners-up in McKinleyville 

The Del Norte wrestling team had to tweak its schedule a little this weekend, but came away with a third place finish in McKinleyville on Saturday.

The Warriors were originally scheduled to send some of their top wrestlers to North Bend to compete, while the less experienced wrestlers went south to McKinleyville, but with several wrestlers out with family commitments and injuries, the Warriors decided to take everyone to McKinleyville.

“I thought we wrestled pretty well,” said Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad. “The kids had a good time and wrestled hard. We didn’t have a whole lot of negatives. We think if we had had our whole team there we may have done a little better, but we are pleased.”

Warrior girls basketball grabs two tourney wins

Del Norte jumped out to a big lead against Cascade Christian before holding off a late charge to get the win.

Del Norte baseball gets a boost

The baseball community in Del Norte is hoping for a big boost in funding this year with the creation of the Warrior Baseball Boosters.

Five current and former baseball coaches in the community have come together this year to form the brand-new organization with the stated goal of raising money for some long-overdue maintenance and equipment upgrades.

“Baseball is just not something that is highly regarded in our area because of the weather and because we always have to travel an hour-and-a-half to play games,” said Sean Harper, Del Norte’s new junior varsity baseball coach and president of the Warrior Boosters. “This is something that has needed to be done for a while. Now that I am back in the fold at the high school this year helping Travis out, it seemed like the right time to get this going.”

Boys basketball wins two of three

For the second weekend in a row the Del Norte boys basketball team finished up its weekend tournament with a 2-1 record.

The Warriors kicked off the tournament against St. Mary’s and stayed close through the first half, but a 38-point second half allowed St. Mary’s to run away with the win.

“We have played very well defensively except for one half this year,” said head coach Blaine Lopez. “We gave up 38 points in the second half against St. Mary’s and that is why we lost the game. St. Mary’s played well, too. They made big shots and we didn’t. Other than that second half though, we have been playing fine on defense.”

The tradition continues Friday as the 42nd annual tournament kicks off, with 40 middle school teams joining the action this year. Teams are classified in five divisions: AAA, AA, A, B and C.
