Warrior wrestlers take sixth in Ukiah

Del Norte places 7 of 10 grapplers in final regular season tournament 

The Del Norte wrestling team is starting to regain its health, and on Saturday it had seven of its 10 varsity wrestlers finish in the top eight of their respective brackets as the Warriors took sixth place out of 27 teams in attendence.

“We did alright,” said Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad. “At this point in the year we are looking more at individual matches than at the total team score. We are glad we finished in the top six overall, but we could have done better; you can always do better.”

While nearly every Warrior in the bracket wrestled well at times on Saturday, Schaad said he thought that pretty much everybody had one match over the weekend that they wish they could have back.

As someone who was a Warrior fan even before I became a Warrior player, it is fun to look back at the Warriors I was watching while I was still at Crescent Elk. One of these that really became one of my heroes was Bud Pyke.

Finding itself trailing by 13 points in the second half to the undefeated and first-place team in the league, the Del Norte girls basketball team could have easily folded. Instead, the Warriors fought back to make the game interesting before ultimately falling 41-36 in Eureka to the 6-0 Loggers.

The homecoming crowd seems to have shaken the Del Norte boys basketball team out of its slump.

The Warriors, who had lost two straight games on the road heading into Friday night's matchup, bounced back with an emphatic 53-35 victory over Eureka in Thunen Gym.

"I thought the kids played extremely hard," said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. "We didn't play great; we didn't shoot the ball very well, but I thought we played really hard. The effort was there, and we have kind of lacked that a little bit lately. So I was proud of them for getting back to that."

The Warriors were all over the place defensively, getting hands in passing lanes for steals and hitting the glass hard for both offensive and defensive rebounds.

“It came right down to the last match of the night,” said Del Norte assistant coach Nick Watson. “We went out and wrestled tough. There were a lot of close matches. They just caught us at a couple weight classes and the cards didn’t fall our way.”
