Last month both took first place in their respective divisions in the overall Southern Oregon Outlaw Kart Champ­ionship series. Bailee finished with 309 points out of nine races run at the track in the 250cc division compared to a final score of 289 for the second place finisher.

“It’s something we can do as a family,” Chris Jones said about Go-Kart racing. “It’s fun and we enjoy the competition and the friends we’ve made.”

Chris Jones took first in the Sportsman division. Fellow Del Norte County resident Eric Chandler took 2nd overall while Bob Miller, also known as “Bondo Bob,” took fifth.

Chris Jones said that since she was little Bailee has had a passion for racing and first got involved riding four wheelers, but added that he’s pleased she got into Go-Karts because “it was a little safer.”

DN boys soccer team downs Ferndale 4-1

Warrior girls fall to Wildcats 6-1

Read more...SuzukiThe Del Norte High boys varsity soccer team made a switch Wednesday night against Ferndale.

The coaching staff moved players around and had those who normally play offense play defense and vice versa to give the squad game experience at another position.  A key reason for the change was to help the  offensive players get their defensive skills up, co-coach Jorge Gonzalez said.

While the Warriors were tied at 1-1 at the end of the first half the team started to get used to their new positions in the second half on their way to the 4-1 win.

This included a two goal performance from Travis Stac­ey, who normally plays defense.

Gonzalez said Stacey settled down in the second half and “played good soccer.”

Edwin Aguilar scored a goal as did Jalen Coney. Jonathan Olvera had two assists.

Gonzalez commended the defense for not allowing the Wildcats many scoring chances, especially in the second half.

In the girls game Del Norte lost 6-1.
