Warrior MMA drops two fights at High Desert Brawl

Two fighters from Warrior MMA traveled to Susanville on Saturday for the High Desert Brawl, and although both fighters picked up a loss, the Warriors were pleased with what they saw out of them.

“We lost both fights, but the guys did really well,” said Warrior MMA coach Ron Otremba.

It was the first MMA fight ever for Jarrod Chavez, a high school wrestling league champion in high school at Willows. Chavez showed off the skills that helped earn him those league titles early in his heavyweight match, but the heat and high altitude eventually wore him down.

Del Norte readies for Fort Bragg road trip

Team looks to rebound in Week 2 from opening loss against similar team

The Del Norte and Fort Bragg football teams had similar, yet opposite experiences in the week leading up to their clash in Fort Bragg this Friday.

The Warriors put up as much of a fight as they could against the No. 2-ranked team in Division III of the North Coast Section (Del Norte is Division IV), Cardinal Newman, before ultimately falling 63-19 with a continuous clock running.

“One thing we stressed as a coaching staff is we never stopped, we never gave up, we kept pounding,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “We showed that we have heart, we have talent, and now we are in a league that we are close to equal, so we will see who comes out and performs.”

 Second annual ‘Bangin’ at the Beach’ tournament at Beachfront draws 62 competitors

For the second year in a row the Wild Rivers Disc Golf Club hosted its Bangin’ at the Beach tournament, the only Pro Disc Golf Association sanctioned event in the area, at Beachfront Park.

This year the tournament saw its numbers jump by about a dozen with 62 total participants competing in eight divisions on Saturday. Players threw two rounds of 21 holes each for the day.

“We had a little bit more time to get ready this year,” said organiser Kevin Mealue. “I think the word got out there, and the 50 people that came out last year came back. A lot of the people here are from Humboldt actually.”

 Youth Football is back for the Six Rivers Conference.

Play opened up this weekend on Saturday and the Del Norte teams kicked things off with a weekend road trip to Humboldt. This year, as in years past, the Warriors have enough participants to field two full teams at each age level.

All the gold teams traveled to Eureka to play at Redwood Fields. The AA Gold team was the only Warrior squad to pick up a win in Eureka on opening day, with a 41-0 victory over Eureka to start things off. The AAA Gold team fell 43-12 at the hands of Eureka and A Gold dropped a close 13-6 contest to the Loggers.

Del Norte volleyball season opener at Gold Beach postponed

Football gets first spot on ‘Warrior Sports” on DNTV

 Warriors fall 62-19 in 2015 season opener against NCS No. 9 Cardinal Newman at Whalen Field

From the opening kickoff the Del Norte football team could tell it was in for a diffi cult first test to open the 2015 season. Cardinal Newman caught the opening kickoff about five yards deep in its own endzone and returned it 105 yards in 13 seconds to put the Cardinals up 7-0 and they never trailed again, pulling away for a 61-19 victory.

The division IV Warriors welcomed division III Cardinal Newman, ranked No. 9 overall in the North Coast Section this year, to Whalen Field for its season opener and the Cardinals showed why they got that lofty preseason ranking.

“Like I told the kids, the preseason is the preseason,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova, coaching the Warriors for the first time since 2008. “We came out and hit the big league right away. They are ranked highly and that is a credit to their program, but our program will grow. We will continue to get better and now we will get ready for Ft. Bragg.”
