Five members of the Del Norte High track and field team are at the Northcoast Section Meet of Champions in Berkeley today.
The event is one step away from state and goes until Saturday.

Today’s story will focus on the boys 4x100 meter relay team and Joseph Alexandre, who besides competing in the 4x100 is also competing in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles and is considered a contender to earn a top four finish in both hurdle events and go on to state.

Saturday’s Triplicate will have a story on junior Kyle Eggan, who is taking part in the shot put, and senior Taylor Duncan, who made state in the pole vault last year and is looking at making a return trip.

Wednesday’s Northcoast Section Division III semifinals softball playoff game was so evenly matched and well played from start to finish by both teams that it was a shame that anyone had to walk away with a loss.

Unfortunately for Del Norte, in the end, they had to be the losing team in this scenario.

The Warriors ended another remarkable year on the softball field with a heartbreaking 3-1 loss in 10 innings to Bay Area power Bishop O’Dowd of Oakland in front of the home fans in Crescent City.

It was an effort from the Warriors that was so impressive Dragons head coach Mike Cobb  called  it the best performance he had ever seen from an opposing team in his five years coaching Bishop O’Dowd.

Outwrestling obstacles

Joey Kravitz is determined to fulfill dreams that once seemed unlikely and use the sport of wrestling as his ticket to bigger and better things.

“I want to be somebody,” said the Del Norte High School senior. “Sometimes you get down in life, but you got to keep going and keep on pushing yourself.”

He’s had more to overcome than his opponents on the mat.

He was almost 5 when he was adopted along with a brother and sister. He suffered vision and heart problems. He didn’t speak well — only his sister could understand him.

Those issues were resolved long ago, but later there were academic challenges to overcome.
